Amsterdam, January 10 2012 – EvoSwitch Datacenter has today officially been added to the list of colocation providers with an AMS-IX Point of Presence (PoP). In addition to being an AMS-IX collocation connecting with multiple 10GE, EvoSwitch will be the first datacenter of its kind for which AMS-IX uses a single 100GE backbone connection.
EvoSwitch, who became an AMS-IX reselling partner in 2010, already has connected numerous networks and built a solid reputation and experience in the interconnection market. The state-of-the-art and energy-efficient site has 10,000 m² of space and is located in the Amsterdam region, with close proximity to the main airport of the Netherlands. Today, EvoSwitch serves more than 35 regional carriers and thousands of hosting, telecom, IT and enterprise customers.
There are many different steps we take here at EvoSwitch to help our customers get their datacenter service up-and-running, from the initial consultation right through to installation, always supported by our friendly customer service team.
At EvoSwitch, delivering a quality colocation service is dependent on the requirements of the individual customer. All our customers have different IT requirements; from financial services customers that look for certification and reliability, to hosting providers that want strong, quality bandwidth and enabled flexibility.
This process of identifying customer requirements starts with an initial consultation to really get under the skin of what the customer is looking for in terms of their IT environment. We make every effort to get to know the companies we work with, and draw on our experience to support our recommendations. We ideally like to invite new customers to visit our datacenters for an initial face-to-face meeting; this helps engagement with the process and allows customers to raise any questions or queries first hand.
An example of this process is the consultation that took place between EvoSwitch and Codemasters, the developer and worldwide publisher of entertainment software. When Codemasters appointed EvoSwitch, our first step was to invite them to our datacenter in Haarlem for a face-to-face meeting, where we had a chance to ask Codemasters everything we needed to know about their infrastructure requirements. We soon learnt that these requirements were hugely influenced by the demands of gamers, and therefore included features such as a reliable uptime, connectivity and redundancy.
EvoSwitch is recognized as one of the most energy-efficient datacenters in Europe.In addition to being climate neutral, the datacenter is also carrier neutral. Ourcustomers already have a choice of more than 35 international carriers, with thisnumber set to increase to over 50 on-site carriers by the end of the year. Thisensures we provide the best available options in connectivity to our customers,who in turn then prioritize their telecom providers and build a global infrastructurethat really fulfills their requirements best.
Choice in connectivity is absolutely critical to companies looking for a trulyredundant infrastructure. Our datacenter is conveniently located in the Amsterdamregion next to one of the largest internet hubs in the world, AMS-IX, and is thusclosely connected to a large number of trans-Atlantic fibers. And thanks to therising number of supplying carriers, connectivity within the datacenter is alsosignificantly increasing. Carrier neutrality means independency and transparencyfor customers, ensuring they have real freedom of choice in working with a provideror even a combination of providers. This way customers can get the best globalinfrastructure and connectivity, rather than just being able to choose from a selectfew.
