The Amsterdam point of presence will enhance our ability to offer best-in-class eCommerce and CMS hosting to one of the world’s busiest and fastest growing online marketplaces.
Southfield, MI (PRWEB) November 02, 2015
Nexcess, a global provider of performance-optimized WordPress, ExpressionEngine, and Magento hosting, has announced the addition of a new Amsterdam facility to its extensive international network.
Nexcess chose to base its newest European point of presence in Amsterdam because of its prime location in one of best-connected cities in the world. Located close to the Amsterdam Internet Exchange, the second biggest peering point in the world, the new facility enhances Nexcess’ ability to offer unbeatable low-latency bandwidth throughout the EU and beyond.
Amsterdam is a major technology and IT center, with a thriving community of startups, developers, entrepreneurs, and eCommerce merchants, making it the perfect choice for a rapidly growing technology company seeking to enhance its EU presence. Approximately a third of Europe’s data center capacity is clustered around Amsterdam — a testament to the strength and versatility of the city’s network infrastructure.
“We’ve long been impressed by the tech culture and infrastructure Amsterdam offers, and when the time came to expand our European operations, it was the obvious choice,” commented Chris Wells, President and CEO of Nexcess, “The Amsterdam point of presence will enhance our ability to offer best-in-class eCommerce and CMS hosting to one of the world’s busiest and fastest growing online marketplaces.”
The Amsterdam facility provides a redundant, multi-homed blend of Tier 1 carriers that includes Level(3), TeliaSonera, and access to the AMS-IX, amongst several other upstream providers. The data center building is highly secure, with round-the-clock on-site guards, multi-level access protection with biometric authentication, and comprehensive interior and exterior video monitoring. Redundant power is provided by 16 x 1.2 Megawatt generators with 2N redundancy over a N+1 redundant uninterruptible power supply infrastructure.
Nexcess will offer a full range of hosting services from the Amsterdam facility, including performance-optimized Magento eCommerce hosting packages for online stores of all sizes, WordPress hosting, ExpressionEngine hosting as the official Enterprise Hosting Partner of EllisLab, and premium vBulletin hosting.
