Web Hosting ToolsAmsterdam – EvoSwitch, the Dutch carrier neutral data center whose operations are fully CO2 neutral, has reached an agreement with AMS-IX in Amsterdam, one of the world’s largest Internet exchanges. The partnership allows EvoSwitch to offer its customers a direct connection to AMS-IX.

The EvoSwitch data center will be AMS-IX’s 15th partner organization. AMS-IX facilitates the exchange of Internet traffic by, inter alia, telecom carriers, e-businesses, hosting providers, Internet professionals, banks, insurance companies, and other parties that handle a lot of Internet traffic. This is done by so-called “peering”. Peering is less costly than buying transit traffic from telecom carriers and allows for more flexibility and redundancy when setting up and controlling Internet traffic within and between networks.
