DE-CIX has deployed a switch at 365 Data Centers, a provider of network-centric colocation and other Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solutions, at the company’s facility located at 427 S. LaSalle in Chicago.
The first DE-CIX deployment with 365 Data Centers
This is the first DE-CIX deployment with 365 Data Centers and the first IX available at their facility in Chicago. For the first time, customers at 365 Data Centers in Chicago now have native access to a neutral multi-service interconnection platform, enabling VLAN access for peering, and to reach global carriers, ISPs, content, cloud, and other networks through a single port.
James Ashton, 365 Data Centers’ VP, Network Operations, said,
“We are pleased to welcome DE-CIX Chicago to CH6 where our Chicago customers can now access DE-CIX’s multi-service interconnection platform for peering and cloud connectivity as well as turnkey access to DE-CIX’s other North American and large global exchanges. DE-CIX is already available from our New York City facility and we look forward to expanding upon our relationship to offer increased access to interconnection services in the markets we serve.”
Moreover, transport connectivity available through 365 Data Centers’ interconnected network of data centers enables nearby secondary markets such as Detroit and Indianapolis low latency access to DE-CIX Chicago, enhancing connectivity for the entire Midwest region.
