August 6th, 2012 By: John Rath
CoreSite Realty (COR) announced a new relationship with Amsterdam Internet Exchange (AMS-IX), which will result in direct access to the AMS-IX peering exchange from multiple CoreSite locations across the U.S. The AMS-IX relationship forms part of CoreSite’s Open Internet Exchange Hub.
AMS-IX in Amsterdam connects over 500 networks, 375 route-server peers with open-peering policies, and nearly 1,000 customer ports. Through the addition of AMS-IX to CoreSite’s Open Internet Exchange Hub, a CoreSite customer now can extend its network connectivity with a single contract from multiple facilities throughout the U.S., including Los Angeles; Chicago; New York; Denver; Washington, DC; Northern Virginia; and the San Francisco Bay Area.
“We are focused on bringing solutions to our customers that increase interconnection options through an open-exchange platform,” stated Eric Bell, General Manager, Network and Interconnection, at CoreSite. “The AMS-IX enabled program provides CoreSite’s Open Internet Exchange customers simplified access to one of Europe’s leading internet exchanges. It brings best-of-breed providers together to deliver dense interconnection ecosystems and diversity in the U.S. market.”
“AMS-IX is looking forward to expanding interconnection options to locations outside of Europe,” said Job Witteman, Chief Executive Officer at AMS-IX. “We see CoreSite as an important resource, helping us to realize our vision to reach networks within the U.S. The network density seen at CoreSite’s One Wilshire campus and other facilities provides the optimal platform to achieve that goal.”
