CoreSite Realty Corporation (COR), a premier provider of secure, reliable, high-performance data center solutions across the US, today announced that the AMS-IX USA Inc., a subsidiary of AMS-IX (Amsterdam Internet Exchange) in Amsterdam, has established an AMS-IX Bay Area Point-of-Presence (PoP) in CoreSite’s Silicon Valley market. This PoP enables both companies to provide additional peering opportunities to the Silicon Valley Internet and technology community.
AMS-IX Bay Area provides a physical platform, housed in two Silicon Valley data center facilities, where organizations can meet to exchange Internet traffic in a stable, fast and cost-effective manner between one another. AMS-IX Bay Area builds on the neutral and distributed formula of AMS-IX, which is the world’s largest Internet connectivity hub with almost 700 connected parties and a peak Internet traffic rate of more than 3 Tb/s.
“CoreSite’s secure, network-rich Silicon Valley data center market is the perfect location for us to further grow AMS-IX Bay Area and expand our choice of connectivity options,” said Job Witteman, CEO of AMS-IX. “With years of experience in operating high-performance data center and colocation facilities in the United States, we see CoreSite as a trusted and reliable colocation provider.”
CoreSite’s Silicon Valley market is comprised of five data centers totaling over 863,000 square feet, centrally located within one of the largest concentrations of Internet and technology companies in the world. More than 170 international and national carriers, cloud providers and enterprise businesses connect to do business in CoreSite’s Silicon Valley platform.
