Terremark has opened the Network Access Point (News - Alert) (NAP) of Amsterdam that joins the company’s network of over 10 top-tier datacenters across Europe.



The company’s new European flagship facility will help the company to deliver secure IT infrastructure solutions to enterprises and government agencies across the globe.

These datacenters serve as the foundation for the secure, enterprise-class services Terremark offers to customers all across the world.

A Verizon (News - Alert) Company, Terremark specializes in transforming and securing enterprise-class IT on a global scale. This strategic move is addressing in-region demand for advanced cloud computing, security and IT infrastructure services through the 25,000 square feet of data center space inside the Amsterdam Airport Schiphol Area.

“The opening of the NAP of Amsterdam represents an important milestone in Verizon’s continued strategic investment in expanding Terremark’s global data center footprint,” said Kerry Bailey, president of Terremark. “The expanded portfolio of facilities and services that we are bringing to market enables our customers throughout Europe to tap into a highly differentiated set of enterprise-class services that meet our high requirements for security, performance and reliability in the industry.”

Terremark notes that the NAP of Amsterdam was established to access one of the world’s largest Internet hubs in terms of traffic and members. This facility is directly connected to AMS-IX, a large Internet exchange with more than 350 members.

Terremark’s enterprise and government customers can leverage the presence of AMS-IX to benefit from hundreds of global networks while reducing latency and controlling transit costs.
