AMSTERDAM, September 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
EvoSwitch, a leading provider of sustainable, innovative carrier-neutral data centres, today announced its sponsorship of the RIPE 65 Meeting, a five-day event bringing together Internet Service Providers and network operators from Europe and around the world to discuss policy, procedures and challenges facing the functioning of the Internet.
Representatives of 250+ global networks, many of whom are EvoSwitch customers, are gathering to discuss network issues, security and internet policy. The event is taking place in Amsterdam, at the Okura Hotel from 24th to 28th September 2012.
"We are excited to support RIPE in bringing together the Internet's engineering community that work around the clock on the management and improvement of the Internet as we know it", said Eric Boonstra, EvoSwitch Managing Director. "Amsterdam is a major hub on the Internet in Europe, proof of which is the Amsterdam Internet Exchange (AMS-IX), one of the largest interconnection points on the Internet in the world. Many of the companies represented at RIPE meetings are customers in our Amsterdam data centre who interconnect their networks directly or through our AMS-IX Point of Presence."
EvoSwitch will take advantage of the RIPE 65 meeting to announce its IXroom, a dedicated suite inside its data centres where Internet-facing customers can interconnect to AMS-IX or privately. The aim of IXroom is to lower the threshold for networks to interconnect, and act as a hub for connectivity inside the data centre. IXroom will first launch in its Amsterdam data centre.
