AMS-IX Chicago’s third point-of-presence is now live in the DuPont Fabros Technology Inc. (DFT) Chicago 2 (CH2) data center. The addition of AMS-IX Chicago to this data center provides DFT customers the ability to exchange their IP traffic with other members on the distributed exchange in a stable, fast and cost-effective manner. Currently, parties such as Hurricane Electric, Akamai, Comlink and Pavlov Media are already connected to the exchange.
“DFT has proven to be a great partner for AMS-IX by facilitating easy and cost-effective interconnection for its customers to connect to the AMS-IX New York exchange deployed at DFT’s New Jersey data center,” said Job Witteman, AMS-IX’s Chief Executive Officer. “We are pleased to have expanded our relationship with DFT and look forward to a successful partnership in Chicago.”
