Cloud Expansion as Terremark Opens Amsterdam Data Facility

The European cloud is getting more entrenched, thanks to Verizon cloud services subsidiary Terremark opening a Network Access Point (NAP) in Amsterdam. That gives Terremark a 10-plus data center cloud footprint across Europe.

The new 25,000 square-foot facility will become Terremark’s flagship in Europe, designed to meet the needs of what the press release describes as “one of the world’s largest Internet hubs in terms of traffic and members.” Moreover, the new data center facility is connected to AMS-IX, a major Internet exchange with more than 350 customers, offering Terremark’s enterprise and government customers low latency and high performance.

Kerry Bailey, president of Terremark, explained the strategic significance of this new NAP:

“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. 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.”

The Amsterdam NAP joins Terremark’s roster of similar facilities in Spain, the United Kingdom and Turkey.
