Additional DC uplinks: AMS-IX and CenturyLink
As recently reported, we continuously expand our data centers in order to meet the increasing demand for hosting solutions. In order to ensure that you are still perfectly connected to the internet in spite of the many new servers we build every day, we have enhanced our data center connectivity with two additional 10 Gbit/s uplinks.
One of the new uplinks connects us with one of the biggest internet exchange hubs across the globe, namely the AMS-IX in Amsterdam. At this internet exchange point, we get access to the networks of hundreds of other internet service providers in the world. Thanks to our uplink to the DE-CIX in Frankfurt and, from now on, the AMS-IX uplink in Amsterdam, an even faster and more direct exchange of data is possible. Specifically between servers in Contabo’s data center and servers, respectively users in other network areas of the internet.
The second uplink increases our connection to the carrier CenturyLink – up to now better known as Level3 – to a total of 40 Gbit/s.
Our data centers are currently connected to the Internet with 120 Gbit/s and it’s not the end of the story yet. In the future, we will continue to increase the number of uplinks and connected carriers so that we increase not only the number of servers hosted, but grow on all levels – together with you!
