Web Host ServicesThe Netherlands – DE-CIX, the central, international Internet exchange in Frankfurt am Main, has expanded its infrastructure at Interxion, a leading European operator of carrier-neutral data centres, by extending its Internet exchange infrastructure into Interxion’s latest Frankfurt data centre, Frankfurt5. For the exchange DE-CIX, this means that they now have five infrastructure locations distributed across the city of Frankfurt. Moving into the new data centre will give DE-CIX and its customers more space to grow as well as access to some of the most advanced IT infrastructure currently available in Germany.

The newly extended relationship brings significant advantages for DE-CIX customers.
