The multi-service port with DE-CIX provides networks the ability to manage multiple services, such as GlobePEER for Internet peering, DirectCLOUD to reach cloud providers. Ivo Ivanov, CEO, DE-CIX International, said,
“QTS is clearly committed to providing access to an unrestricted Internet ecosystem as evidenced by their partnership with similar exchanges nationally. By expanding our US presence in QTS’ mega scale, carrier neutral data centers and connectivity ecosystems, DE-CIX is able to provide even more customers the ability to reach the greatest number of low latency network choices, reducing risk and improving performance for their IT investments in each market.”
