Nexcess, a global provider of performance-optimized WordPress hosting, Magento hosting, and ExpressionEngine has announced the addition of a new Amsterdam data center to its already extensive international network.
Nexcess chose to base its newest European Point-of-Presence (PoP) in Amsterdam because of its prime location in one of best-connected cities in the world. Located close to the Amsterdam Internet Exchange (AMS-IX), one of the largest peering points in the world, the new data center facility would enhance Nexcess’ ability to offer low-latency bandwidth throughout the EU and beyond.
The Amsterdam data center provides a redundant, multi-homed blend of Tier 1 carriers that includes Level 3, TeliaSonera, and access to the AMS-IX, amongst several other upstream providers. The data center building would be highly secure, with round-the-clock on-site guards, multi-level access protection with biometric authentication, and comprehensive interior and exterior video monitoring. Redundant power is provided by 16 x 1.2 Megawatt generators with 2N redundancy over a N+1 redundant uninterruptible power supply infrastructure.
Nexcess will offer a full range of hosting services from the Amsterdam facility, including performance-optimized Magento eCommerce hosting packages for online stores of all sizes, WordPress hosting, ExpressionEngine hosting as the official Enterprise Hosting Partner of EllisLab, and premium vBulletin hosting.
Startups, e-commerce merchants
“We’ve long been impressed by the tech culture and infrastructure Amsterdam offers, and when the time came to expand our European operations, it was the obvious choice,” said Chris Wells, President and CEO of Nexcess. “The Amsterdam Point-of-Presence will enhance our ability to offer best-in-class eCommerce and CMS hosting to one of the world’s busiest and fastest growing online marketplaces.”
Amsterdam has a thriving community of startups, developers, entrepreneurs, and e-commerce merchants, making it a good choice for a rapidly growing technology company like Nexcess seeking to enhance its EU presence.
Nexcess is a Southfield, Michigan-based managed hosting company founded in 2000, with data centers distributed throughout the United States, Europe, and Australia.
