The world’s leading Internet Exchange (IX) operator DE-CIX launches services in Denmark

Frankfurt am Main (Germany), Copenhagen (Denmark), 15. June 2023. DE-CIX, the world’s leading Internet Exchange (IX) operator and home to the largest carrier and data center neutral interconnection ecosystem globally, pushes its expansion forward with its newest Internet Exchanges in Esbjerg and Copenhagen (Denmark). DE-CIX has partnered with Bulk Data Centers in Esbjerg, after launching their services at Bulk’s two data centers in Norway last month. Digital Realty will house DE-CIX services in their data center in Copenhagen.

The newest DE-CIX Internet Exchanges in Denmark are based on the award-winning DE-CIX Apollon interconnection and cloud platform, which includes cloud routing services for companies of all sizes to manage their hybrid and multi-cloud scenarios and gain control of their data beyond the public Internet.

With the approach of one access, all clouds, and every network, DE-CIX is bringing its InterconnectionFLEX service to Denmark, providing enterprises with a complete interconnection package as a holistic solution for peering, cloud connectivity, and private network interconnects (PNIs). Customers can benefit from direct access to over 50 clouds, 2000+ local and international networks and over 250 data centers in Germany, Southern Europe, Asia, and the USA – with one single contract and full flexibility, including a comprehensive interconnection consultation.

“DE-CIX is proud to provide interconnection services in Denmark, bringing our state-of-the-art platform to a highly digitalized society. People and businesses in Denmark deserve the very best interconnection, with secure, dedicated, and high-speed connectivity to clouds, content, and applications. DE-CIX provides the solution for the pain points of Danish companies and internationally acting enterprises to gain control of their business-critical data journey with the lowest latency possible and the highest level of security and ensure the best performance of applications.” says Ivo Ivanov, CEO of DE-CIX.

“Our partnership with DE-CIX will give local and international customers the option to interconnect and access a range of services in major markets with even lower latency. By strategically locating our data center in Esbjerg, we leverage the advantages of a close proximity to continental Europe and robust fiber connectivity to the US. We are seeing an increase in demand for low cost, highly sustainable solutions and with these new DE-CIX Nordics locations we are helping to support that gravity shift North, where you find the greenest energy in Europe,” said Gisle M. Eckhoff, Executive Vice President Data Centers at Bulk Infrastructure Group.

With the launch of the Internet Exchanges in Esbjerg and Copenhagen, DE-CIX has further extended its presence in the Nordics, after the recent launches of platforms in Norway and Finland.
