AMS-IX has expanded its EasyAccess footprint to maincubes’ AMS01 data center in Schiphol-Rijk. Colocation clients with a PoP (Point of Presence) in maincubes AMS01 will soon be able to connect directly to AMS-IX through this “affordable” EasyAccess connection, helping them to reduce latency and optimize Internet traffic routing.
“Having one of world’s largest Internet Exchanges available in our data center is an important enrichment of our ecosystem,” said Joris te Lintelo, SVP International Sales at maincubes. “It will for sure be appreciated by our customers and prospects.”
EasyAccess is an AMS-IX service enabling organizations to get easy access to AMS-IX Amsterdam. Clients that wish to utilize the EasyAccess service just need to have a physical network presence in one of the more than 200 colocation data centers that have EasyAccess enabled. They are not required to have equipment at an AMS-IX PoP site. EasyAccess bundles the cost of the peering port with the transport to AMS-IX Amsterdam into one package.
“We are very pleased with this expansion of our EasyAccess footprint,” said Aleksander Mitrov, Head of Product of AMS-IX. “By enabling maincubes AMS01, located at the Schiphol-Rijk datacenter campus, for EasyAccess, we make it easy for Internet service providers, telecom operators, hosting companies and other Internet businesses to cost-effectively connect to AMS-IX Amsterdam and exchange traffic with more than 880 networks from all over the world.”
