Physical Presence

The AMS-IX Chicago infrastructure is currently housed in three data centers with a secure and controlled environment.  

The colocation facility itself is independent of AMS-IX Chicago and therefore any issues regarding the housing of equipment at this site needs to be directed towards the colocation management directly. Note that you must have an agreement with a colocation facility before you can connect to the AMS-IX Chicago network. 

Important: If you select the CME Cermak Hosting Facility to connect to AMS-IX Chicago please first read the cross connection instruction.
