Lamda Hellix Data Centers and DE-CIX has entered into a strategic partnership to develop the South East Europe Cloud & Interconnection Exchange (SEECIX) powered by DE-CIX.

Once live, the new interconnection hub will serve the South East European/Balkan region in extension to other DE-CIX metro markets in Lisbon, Madrid, Marseille, Palermo, and Istanbul, acting as a further new gateway between South East Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia.
At SEECIX, additional peering, private interconnection and cloud exchange services will also be available, with access to top public clouds including Microsoft Azure, AWS, Google Cloud, IBM Bluemix.
“With our latest strategic partnership with global leader DE-CIX, we aim to extend our leadership, strengthen the country’s critical digital infrastructure, and establish Greece as a digital hub by improving latency to/from South East Europe, providing access to the whole world with just one connection to our growing digital ecosystem,” said Apostolos Kakkos, chairman & CEO of Lamda Hellix.
“We are certain SEECIX will have a tremendous impact and meet huge success in the South East of Europe and beyond,” said Ivo Ivanov, CEO of DE-CIX International.
