Cloud Service Provider Cyso Consolidates Data Center Operations at New Equinix Data Center in Amsterdam
Amsterdam – 9 December 2010 – Equinix, a provider of global data center services, today announced that Cyso, a Dutch provider of cloud services, has moved its operations into Equinix’s fourth International Business Exchange (IBX) data center in the Netherlands (AM2). The IBX data center officially opened today at the company’s grand opening event.
Cyso, one of the first ISPs in the Netherlands, recently decided to move its data center operations into Equinix’s state of the art AM2 IBX data center to expand its offering to encompass cloud services. Cyso selected Platform Equinix to offer its services on a global scale, allowing it to meet the needs of customers, no matter where they reside.
“The advantages of relocating to Equinix go way beyond access to highly resilient data center services, for example, the real Equinix value-add comes from its global footprint of data centers,” said Paul Bankert, Manager Business & Software Development at Cyso. “We have aggressive plans to expand internationally and are now confident we are best positioned to support this growth.”
In addition to global reach, Cyso can optimize the delivery performance of its cloud services with access to more than 45 carrier networks, as well as direct access to AMS-IX the world’s largest single metro area Internet exchange. Through the Equinix ecosystem, Cyso can cross-connect to these carriers in just a matter of hours, enabling it to grow its network quickly and easily to match customer demand.
“We continue to experience strong demand for our data center services in Amsterdam and we are pleased to meet the needs of Cyso’s expansion into cloud services,” said Michiel Eielts, General Manager of Equinix, Netherlands. “Through our unique global platform, our customers have access to rich ecosystems of potential partners and customers, enabling them to connect with other leading companies and maximize their business opportunities.”
AM2 is Equinix’s fourth data center in the Netherlands, the second phase of which was completed in Q3 2010.
