The Datacenter Group Amsterdam to become new AMS-IX location


The Datacenter Group (TDCG) is to become a new PoP (Point of Presence) for AMS-IX, the world's leading Internet Exchange. As a result of this expansion, AMS-IX will offer its customers additional diversity in the area of Data Centre space.

Growing demand of network capacity
During a festive gathering, the multi-year contract was recently signed by the CEO of each respective company. In doing so, the two parties join forces in providing a larger supply of Data Centres with AMS-IX connectivity. TDCG will also offer its customers in Delft the opportunity to use the AMS-IX POP in Amsterdam. Job Witteman, AMS-IX CEO, illustrates the budding partnership: “We see that the Dutch digital infrastructure keeps growing at an enormous rate. The Dutch Data Centre market is even the fastest growing market in Europe. As a neutral party, we wish to spread our presence over a number of Data Centres. This corresponds with the philosophy of the AMS-IX model: we believe in partnerships in a collaborative setting with other parties. In this way we have been strengthening the digital infrastructure of the Netherlands and the world for over twenty years.”

Siemon van den Berg, TDCG CEO, adds: “We’re not just proud that AMS-IX has chosen our Data Centre to be their 14th POP, but it’s also a good development that AMS-IX locations will remain present in Data Centres with Dutch owners. Demand for Data Centre capacity has increased exponentially in recent years. This trend will continue in the years to come. As a result, the demand for reliable and high quality connectivity will also increase. The connection with AMS-IX provides our service with a new elan. Both our national and international clients are presented with access to the global and outstanding peering infrastructure of AMS-IX.”
