Rackspace / AMS-IX and Digital Realty

Rackspace Leverages AMS-IX Chicago to Enhance Interconnectivity and Lower Costs

Share

To solve its need for colocation space that is cost-effective, scalable and complete with a range of connectivity options, Rackspace made the decision to collocate within Digital Realty's Open-IX (OIX)-certified data centre in Elk Grove Village, Illinois, a suburb located about 25 miles west of downtown Chicago.

Results:

  • Leveraging AMS-IX Chicago's peering services, Rackspace has now established interconnections with multiple parties in other data centres.
  • This interconnectivity has helped Rackspace develop enhanced network redundancy, enabling the maintenance of a 100 percent network uptime Service Level Agreement (SLA).
  • In addition, because the AMS-IX node is located less than 100 meters from DFT CH2, Rackspace is not subject to any third-party, last mile fees, keeping peering costs as low as possible.
