EdgeConneX launches EDC in Amsterdam

20 January 2016 |


US-based EdgeConneX has expanded its data centre footprint with the launch of an Edge Data Center (EDC) in Amsterdam.

The expansion is allegedly designed to address growing customer demand for the fast and reliable delivery of content to consumers and enterprises overseas. 

“Our Amsterdam facility will be our first Edge Data Center in Europe and we look to replicate our US model internationally, supporting a highly distributed data centre architecture at the edge of the internet,” said Clint Heiden, EdgeConneX CCO.

“We are excited to see the adoption of our strategy by leading European broadband and internet providers. Our Amsterdam Edge Data Center is a collaborative ecosystem effort and is the first step to bringing our business model benefits to all of Europe.”

EdgeConneX plans to deploy additional EDCs across Europe in Ireland, Italy, France, Austria, Germany and the UK.
