DE-CIX, the world’s leading Internet Exchange (IX) operator and NYI, a leading provider of managed hybrid infrastructure solutions announce the expansion of their partnership to Chicago. At a time when access to powerful connectivity capabilities has become critical, the enhanced connectivity capabilities NYI and DE-CIX offer enable even more customers to address accelerating infrastructure and network needs in both Chicago and New York.

The DE-CIX peering, cloud, and interconnection services will now be available to the entire market including the NYI data center facility in Oak Brook, IL and the Digital Crossroad hyperscale data center campus in Hammond, IN. The CCF platform provides a unique, multi-layer network connectivity ecosystem, which now gives customers access to the world’s largest carrier, and data center neutral interconnection ecosystem through DE-CIX’s GlobePEER Remote solution. DE-CIX’s global interconnection ecosystem reaches all the way from the DE-CIX IXs in North America, to Europe, the Middle East, and India, and on to Southeast Asia, connecting close to 2200 networks overall.

“We have long valued our relationship with NYI and are thrilled to extend our mutually complementary capabilities to Chicago,” says Ed d’Agostino, VP and General Manager of DE-CIX North America. “NYI started as a DE-CIX customer, then a reseller, followed by a data center partner at NYI’s 60 Hudson Street facility in New York City where we deployed our 14th switch. The company now serves as one of our strategic data center access partners, offering capabilities that support DE-CIX’s mission to enable enhanced connectivity solutions in North America. Not only was NYI instrumental in advocating for the DE-CIX expansion to Chicago, their flexible Cross Connect Fabric has expanded reach and enabled new connectivity options from day one.”

“NYI is proud to be an integral partner with DE-CIX in North America, serving as a strategic data center partner now in both New York and Chicago,” adds Phillip Koblence, Co-founder and COO of NYI. “In addition to assisting clients with custom data center deployments, we’re now excited to be able to offer broader cost-effective connectivity solutions that enable interconnections outside the walls of our own facilities, enabling clients to reach new markets. Collaborating with DE-CIX, an organization that shares our neutral, community-oriented approach to infrastructure and network enablement, is something we deeply value as our portfolio expands and our role continues to evolve from “data center facility” to “solutions facilitator.”

As digital transformation continues to place added demands on businesses, NYI and DE-CIX customers in New York and Chicago can immediately take advantage of the robust multi-service international peering and cloud connectivity capabilities with NYI’s full suite of high-touch hybrid IT services.
