Global Data Centers staff

Our partner DE-CIX, the world’s largest independent interconnection platform, has recently established a new active Edge switch within our Frankfurt 1 Data Center which has multiple, redundant connections to the core DE-CIX platform in Frankfurt.

Based on our longstanding successful partnership and the strong demand within the client base of the Global Data Centers division of NTT, DE-CIX decided to expand the existing presence within the Frankfurt 1 Data Center campus. Thomas King, Chief Technology Officer of DE-CIX, comments: “NTT Ltd.’s Global Data Centers divison is a strong data center partner for us. We have a trustful and commercially successful partnership. There is an increasing stream of demand for both Internet Exchange and Cloud Exchange services from its customer base which made us decide to grow our presence within the campus so we can accommodate for future demand. I am looking forward to working together even more and create more mutual customer value.”

NTT is very pleased to add another cornerstone of connectivity to their portfolio. DE-CIX connects over 2.000 networks and clouds with a total connected capacity of over 60 TB – and DE-CIX Frankfurt is the biggest neutral internet exchange point across the globe when it comes to peak traffic. “Next to reliable and secure data center services, premier connectivity options are a strong argument for clients to house their IT infrastructure with Global Data Centers”, says Jens Möller, Director Direct Sales of the Global Data Centers EMEA division of NTT Ltd. “Hence we are very satisfied with the partnership and can clearly see great benefits for our clients.”
