AFIBER has deployed a new point of presence in Datacenter.com’s AMS1 data centre, adding its services to the data centre provider’s portfolio.

AFIBER offers a software-defined on-demand networking solution spanning both retail and wholesale. Its network has been designed and implemented using carrier grade infrastructure with high capacity fibre backbone with access to 50+ data centres and 1000+ multi tenant office locations.

“A variety of AFIBER customers and prospects have been asking us for a while already to have our network services available in Datacenter.com Amsterdam AMS1,” said Jochem de Gruyter, CEO of AFIBER.

“If you want to have the Amsterdam metropolitan data centre market truly covered, you have to take an independent customer focused approach as network service provider. Adding AMS1 to our optical network offers more diversity to our customers and service providers and underlines our connectivity strategy for high density data and cloud colocation.”

The Datacenter.com AMS1 data centre is located in the Amsterdam South-East Business District - one of the world’s most ‘carrier fibre’-dense areas.

“AFIBER and Datacenter.com share the same demand-oriented company values of delivering high quality data centre services featuring highly flexible, on-demand characteristics. What’s more, we share the same aggressive plans for international growth while we’re both delivering a large part of our services through an international ecosystem of channel partners,” said Jochem Steman, CEO of Datacenter.com.

“The highly efficient connectivity services offered by AFIBER will certainly cater to the low latency and high bandwidth needs of our most demanding customers including cloud service providers as well as financials and organizations within healthcare.
