NL-ix and TelecityGroup Sign Contract for new Amsterdam data centre

Internet expansion in the Netherlands guaranteed

TelecityGroup, a provider of premium carrier-neutral data centres, and NL-ix, one of the world’s leading Internet Exchanges, today signed a contract to expand NL-ix’s capacity in TelecityGroup’s existing data centres and to its new data centre, AMS 5, which is currently under construction.  In response to growing demand for connections and capacity, TelecityGroup is currently building a new 9MW, 9000 m2 data centre in Amsterdam Zuidoost. NL-ix will be offering its services through AMS 5 from its opening.

Internet use has grown explosively in recent years and this trend is set to continue. The partnership allows both companies to meet the continued growth of the digital economy in the Netherlands.

Alexandra Schless, TelecityGroup’s Managing Director commented, “NL-ix is among the world’s most important internet exchanges and a vital player in the successful operation and development of the internet both within the Netherlands and internationally. As such, TelecityGroup is very pleased that NL-ix is one of the first to set up peering points in AMS 5, enabling us to facilitate the growth of new and existing customers together. Combined with NL-ix's expansion in our existing data centres, today’s announcement reinforces our ongoing commitment to collaborate in order to provide the best possible connectivity environment in the Netherlands, with low latencies, physical proximity and adequate capacity, both now and into the future."

Jan Hoogenboom, NL-ex’s Chief Executive Officer commented: “NL-ix, the world’s fifth largest internet exchange is very pleased to expand its collaboration with the biggest and most successful data centre operator in the Netherlands. TelecityGroup facilitates more independent peering networks in its Amsterdam data centres than any other data centre provider anywhere in the Netherlands. As such, TelecityGroup is a perfect match with NL-ix. We are confident that the combination of the newest and most advanced data centre ever built by TelecityGroup, the future AMS 5, and NL-ix's extensive presence, will contribute to the continued success of our collaboration."
