April 03, 2019 DE-CIX

NETHERLANDS, DE-CIX the world’s leading Internet Exchange operator and Voiped Telecom Europe's rapidly growing ICT developer and provider of data services, recently announced a significant partnership that establishes important interconnection points for Internet traffic exchanges in central Europe that will bridge data center footprints across both sides of the Atlantic.

Voiped Telecoms peering to the largest IX and datacenter-neutral carrier in the transatlantic market will provide world-class, direct turn-key access for peering between central European cities and DE-CIXs New York and Dallas respective Internet Exchange Points.

European Datacenter growth breaks new records

In Europe, the last 12 months saw unprecedented growth in the data center space and this surge in new deployments is at a stage where organic builds are becoming more prevalent, according to a report published by the data economy.

The rapid growth of the data center industry is well documented in several other quarterly reports such as BroadGroup’s Colocation Market Quarterly (CMQ), which also highlights the surge in data power and space capacity available across Europe.

New access drives hyper-scale demand for Cloud Data in Europe

Analysts at the different research houses seem to agree that hyper-scale cloud demand is responsible for the staggering growth witnessed in the data sector and which broke records.

“Demand was very strong in the quarter and again driven by hyper-scale cloud players and it was not just the five main US hyper-scale cloud players, but growing demand from Chinese players, and companies such as Oracle which undertook some major deployments in Frankfurt,” it reads in BroadGroup’s CMQ.

Data demand drivers led by two key factors:

1) the trend of future demand is driving even more aggressive plans for data expansion in the future.

2) access to funding is not only coming from ‘traditional investors’ in the sector but a new wave of investors such as pension funds and sovereign wealth funds - BroadGroup’s CMQ.

With a market share of no less than 32 %, the Amsterdam region occupies a unique position because it's both a colocation hub and a hyper-scale cluster and this exceptional combination makes Amsterdam the second-largest market in Europe after London.

Datacenter sustainability

Data centers have massive economic importance and Voiped Telecom partner with those that are transparent and that has a positive role in the importance of energy transition.

In the Netherlands, for example, the sector relies almost entirely on green energy and quantum steps have been taken in the field of energy efficiency. Further to this, unconsumed heat generated by data centers is now increasingly being recycled.

The DDA study shows that no less than 64% of the DDA participants actively recycle their residual heat, Stijn Grove said: “This residual heat is now mainly used for heating the data centers".


Internet Peering routes

Voiped Telecom is committed to building an ecosystem of partners and innovation to help our customers achieve success when deploying solutions from the data center to the edge.

"Today’s unique applications require unique IT configurations and as technology evolves so does the vision of the company. Via the DE-CIX GlobePEER service, our clients will have the ability to connect to hundreds of networks on a leading-edge industry platform”, said ‘Ferry Stienstra, CEO, Voiped Telecom".

By peering, operators significantly enhance the speed and reliability of all IP products and reduce IP transit and network costs. IT operators also have direct control over traffic flows and shortened AS paths, a feature that businesses are quickly realizing increases competitivity within the market and this has created a huge uptake in new data connections.
