EPIX Node Now Live in EdgeConneX Warsaw Data Center
EdgeConneX® has turned up a node in EdgeConneX’s Warsaw data center. The node facilitates a physical uplink to EPIX resources via 1 and 10 Gb optical ports from the EdgeConneX facility. EdgeConneX was chosen for the next EPIX node because of the site’s operational neutrality, customer demand and ease of fiber connection.
“Inclusion of the EPIX node will expand the number of operators available in the data center, which will in turn increase its availability. As a result, our customers will increase the traffic at EPIX and provide it with new content. It’s a win-win for all involved.” – Dick Theunissen, Managing Director EMEA at EdgeConneX
EdgeConneX’s substantial customer base of network, content and cloud service providers require robust solutions to support their localized and latency-sensitive requirements in Central and Eastern Europe. Demand in Europe is being driven by increased adoption of hybrid cloud, data regulations and the ability to be the gateway into neighboring countries. As such, Warsaw is positioned as one of Europe’s digital leaders. With additional EMEA market expansion planned throughout 2019, the EPIX node availability complements the company’s overall strategic expansion goals in the region.
“This investment will help further expand the EPIX initiative while providing increased opportunities to potential members, comments Krzysztof Czuszek from the E-Południe Association. “This step also further solidifies EdgeConneX’s standing as a premier data center and interconnection hub in Europe. The EPIX node’s distribution has a significant impact on its availability and security and provides EPIX members with the ability to leverage new international IP resources.”
