EdgeConneX, a wholesale provider of data center services for content, network, colocation, CDNs and service providers, headquartered in Herndon, Virginia, has expanded its data center footprint internationally with a new ‘Edge Data Center’ (EDC) deployment in Amsterdam. The company plans to deploy its EDCs throughout Europe, including markets in Ireland, Italy, France, Austria, Germany, and the United Kingdom.
“Our Amsterdam facility will be our first Edge Data Center in Europe and we look to replicate our U.S. model internationally, supporting a highly distributed data center architecture at the edge of the Internet,” said Clint Heiden, Chief Commercial Officer (CCO), EdgeConneX. “We are excited to see the adoption of our strategy by leading European broadband and Internet providers. Our Amsterdam Edge Data Center is a collaborative ecosystem effort and is the first step to bringing our business model benefits to all of Europe.”
To enable the “Internet of Everywhere,” EdgeConneX’s model is to deploy purpose-built, “state-of-the-art” facilities in markets across a region, extending the Internet’s edge as close to enterprises and end-users as possible.
To date, EdgeConneX has built 23 data centers across the U.S. to support the ever-growing demand for bandwidth-intensive content and cloud applications. The new Amsterdam EDC is purpose-built and precisely located to provide the shortest and fastest routes for content, cloud and application delivery to local consumers, enterprises and Internet customers throughout The Netherlands.
