DE-CIX, the world’s leading internet provider, has just received the DataCloud Global Award 2022 in the newly-created category of Connectivity Innovator of the Year. DE-CIX was recognized for its Infrastructure as a Service offering, DE-CIX as a Service, which is specially designed for data centers in greenfield interconnection markets and tier 2 and 3 markets.

Ivo Ivanov, CEO of DE-CIX International, recently shared four main benefits of interconnection infrastructure to enable regional IX solutions in data centers, including: 

  1. Local interconnection improves the connectivity and performance of digital applications
  2. Connectivity to clouds and content improves growth potential
  3. Cities and regions with a highly developed digital economy are more competitive
  4. Regional Internet Exchanges create business opportunities for network operators and data centers

As a result, regional digital economies benefit by offering improved performance, attracting new business for local growth, increasing competitiveness and business opportunities in more markets. With the provided support of building and operating an IX, using DE-CIX’s proven global technology, DE-CIX as a Service encourages IX connectivity with their global ecosystem spanning over 33 markets throughout the world. 

These four beliefs are what illustrated that DE-CIX continues to innovate and lead interconnection solutions globally.  The company’s award winning DE-CIX as a Service program empowers data centers to offer their customers a fully functional multi-service interconnection platform, professionally managed by DE-CIX who provides the hardware, technological expertise, and customer service. 

DE-CIX recognizes that the program could not have been possible without the support and trust of their customers and partners, as well as the DE-CIX team. They have extended their thanks to all of the advocates.

The award ceremony took place at the Datacloud Global Congress in Grimaldi Forum, Monaco on April 25, 2022. The prestigious Datacloud Global Awards 2022 ceremony celebrated outstanding achievements of those across the data centre, cloud and edge sectors throughout the last year.
