AMS-IX shows monthly data volume in seven years tenfold




The AMS-IX, the data that is processed monthly grow from 50 petabytes in 2007 on the Internet node to more than 500 petabytes in October this year. Partly based on these statistics called AMS-IX Dutch digital infrastructure ‘third main port.

In a report by AMS-IX, Deloitte, the Dutch Hosting Provider Association (DHPA), ECP and Rabobank, the digital infrastructure in the Netherlands described as the third main port after the port of Rotterdam and Schiphol airport. Thereby the Dutch Internet market described by the parties as a forerunner in the field of innovation and active participant in various internetcommunitiy’s. Also, the market for Web services open and neutral, so that the Netherlands can fully compete with London, Paris and Frankfurt.

AMS-IX: maandelijke volumegroei in petabyte

Despite the strong position of the Netherlands in the field of digital infrastructure see the authors of the report two European countries that are actively out to record new data centers within their borders: Sweden and Luxembourg. Sweden provides cheap and often 100 percent green generated power. It is also the country politically and socially stable, it has a good digital infrastructure and climate gives good opportunities to cool data centers.

Luxembourg must, above all from its convenient location within the so-called ‘golden ring’, where the distances are internet hubs in Amsterdam, London, Paris and Frankfurt shortly. This allows data centers achieve low latency times, up to 5ms. Luxembourg is also resistant to many natural disasters, such as floods or earthquakes.

Netherlands must defend its competitive position by continuing to offer good conditions to parties who want to build new ones. Datacenters The meanest afmsterdam has some conditions defined in the previous month ‘business location data centers’ before. Amsterdam so expect that every year 20,000 sqm will come. Available to surface for colocation purposes It should focus on the development of more efficient data centers with a PUE value is lower than 1.2.
