Global IaaS Provider 3W Infra Adds Asteroid IXP to Its Networking Ecosystem in Amsterdam
- Saturday, 14th April, 2018
3W Infra, a fast growing Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) hosting provider from Amsterdam with global operations and more than 4,600 dedicated servers under management, has added the Asteroid Internet Exchange Point (IXP) to its ecosystem of network infrastructure providers in Amsterdam. 3W Infra will interconnect its high-volume (160 Gbps) global network with the Asteroid IXP in Amsterdam, expanding the company’s networking capabilities and interconnectivity options in the Amsterdam metropolitan area while reducing networking cost for their clients.
Asteroid operates its network-neutral Internet Exchange Point from Amsterdam Science Park – an area of 70 hectares in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, where research institutes and related companies have their presence as well as data centers such as Interxion, Digital Realty, Equinix, and NIKHEF. Asteroid has its IXP solution in the NIKHEF data center – one of the largest Internet hubs in Europe that is part of a research institute, the Dutch National Institute for Subatomic Physics.
“Asteroid delivers interconnection services, but does it quite differently to many of the existing IXP players in the market,” said Remco van Mook, CEO of Asteroid. “We don’t deliver metro-wide connectivity, transport or cloud services, and we don’t compete with our customers. In fact, we have gone back to the origins of peering, focusing on delivering highly efficient, cost-effective, and low-latency local interconnection. We’re excited about 3W Infra connecting to our highly automated IXP, as their customer base includes some of the largest, latency-sensitive content providers including cloud service providers and customers within the gaming segment.”
