Physical Presence

The AMS-IX Bay Area infrastructure is currently housed in four data centers with a secure and controlled environment. At these data centers, customers can connect to the infrastructure locally by a cross-connect between their equipment and the AMS-IX Bay Area patch panel. The colocation facility itself is independent of AMS-IX Bay Area and therefore any issues regarding the housing of equipment at this site needs to be directed towards the colocation management directly. Note that you must have an agreement with the colocation facility before you can connect to the AMS-IX Bay Area network.
