Connectivity Innovator of the Year: DE-CIX wins DataCloud Global Award 2022

Datacloud award 22

After a pause during the Covid-19 pandemic, the DataCloud Global awards ceremony was again held in Monaco last night, as part of the DataCloud Global Congress 2022. We are delighted to report that our DE-CIX as a Service program came first in the newly-created Connectivity Innovator of the Year Award.

We would like to thank our customers and partners for their trust and support, as well as our great DE-CIX team!

Support in building and operating an IX

By supporting partners to create their own local interconnection ecosystems, we are bringing data exchange closer to the edge. DE-CIX as a Service, an Infrastructure as a Service offer specially designed for data centers in greenfield interconnection markets and tier 2/3 cities, provides support in building and operating an IX using DE-CIX’s technology. By interconnecting the IX with our global ecosystems, DaaS enables the largest data center and carrier neutral “virtual meet-me-room” in the world. 

9 DE-CIX as a Service locations

We can now count nine DE-CIX as a Service locations in operation or implementation around the world. Newcomers like IRAQ-IXP powered by DE-CIX and Aqaba-IX powered by DE-CIX (in Jordan) join success stories like the UAE-IX powered by DE-CIX (in Dubai) and SEECIX powered by DE-CIX (in Athens), and attest to the potential of the model.
