DE-CIX, one of the world’s leading Internet Exchange (IX) operators with the largest IX in the New York market, recently announced that it has expanded its partnership with NYI, a leading global provider of managed hybrid IT solutions. DE-CIX has deployed a new PoP (Point of Presence) within NYI’s NY2 data center facility located at the iconic 60 Hudson Street carrier hotel. This new switch enables customers of both companies to leverage enhanced connectivity options — including access to more than 200 locally peered networks via a single cross connect — and cost-effective, high-touch managed services. Customers can also enjoy access to the largest neutral peering exchange in New York and beyond by extending their existing presence with DE-CIX’s GlobePEER Remote service, offering remote peering across the company’s global sites such as Frankfurt, Madrid and more.
“We’re thrilled to expand our partnership with DE-CIX and be able to offer businesses an easy entry point to this pre-eminent market,” notes NYI Co-Founder and COO Phillip Koblence. “The new DE-CIX PoP will attract additional domestic and international clients with low-latency edge requirements and help them cost-effectively extend their reach through access to a global network platform that reaches thousands of networks around the world. By offering interconnection solutions that are powerful, flexible, and scalable, we can meet the rapidly growing connectivity needs of global clients across all verticals.”
DE-CIX’s presence in NY2 is the company’s third access point in the 60 Hudson Street carrier hotel and 14th switch in the New York metro market. This partnership enables networks to enjoy reduced costs, enhanced connectivity and managed colocation options, ensuring that a greater number of global enterprises can be a part of this eminent location. Easy access to DE-CIX and NYI services will also extend to DataGryd, a provider of high-density and hyperscale solutions at 60 Hudson Street that announced a partnership to leverage NYI’s capabilities within 60 Hudson Street last year.
“With the deployment of our new PoP with NYI, we are increasing our ability to offer new connectivity options, including global reach, to a greater number of customers in the market,” comments Ed d’Agostino, Vice President and General Manager of DE-CIX North America. “NYI continues to be a fantastic partner, offering unique services that simplify customers’ deployments while meeting the evolving and growing needs in the market. We’re honored to partner with NYI at 60 Hudson.”
NYI’s high-touch managed capabilities empower businesses to seamlessly and quickly deploy infrastructure solutions. In particular, international customers can benefit from access to NYI’s expert engineers, who provide onsite support to help overcome any logistical hurdles.
This new switch underscores NYI’s and DE-CIX’s successful partnership. NYI has been a long-term partner of DE-CIX, with Phillip Koblence serving on DE-CIX North America’s Customer Advisory Board. With their enhanced partnership, both companies can empower their customers to leverage optimized connectivity throughout the New York metro.
