DE-CIX, the world’s leading Internet Exchange (IX) operator committed to sustainability has entered into an exclusive partnership with DCX.us Data Centre, a premier provider of fully managed hyper-density colocation solutions designed to prioritise environmental sustainability while catering to high-performance computing, artificial intelligence, and mission-critical applications. This groundbreaking collaboration, currently open for pre-orders, seamlessly merges DE-CIX’s renowned interconnection capabilities with DCX’s state-of-the-art hyper-density data centre located in the eco-conscious region of Phoenix.
For DCX, this partnership significantly expands its interconnection options and offers customers enhanced access to DE-CIX’s industry-leading interconnection platform. This alliance leverages advanced dense power technology to seamlessly integrate DE-CIX’s interconnection capabilities directly into DCX’s GY flagship data centre facility in Goodyear, AZ. This strategic collaboration empowers DCX customers with effortless access to DE-CIX Phoenix while extending their reach to 30 DE-CIX IXs across North America and Europe. This means that DCX customers can directly connect with the DE-CIX ecosystem of national and international networks, including Internet service providers (ISPs), carriers, content networks, content distribution networks (CDNs), cloud service providers, and enterprises, through simple cross-connects within the DCX facilities.
Under the visionary leadership of George Slessman and Bill Slessman, DCX combines its hyper-density power infrastructure and 100% dedicated critical systems to create an exceptional, energy-efficient environment for businesses seeking optimal performance, scalability, and security for high-performance computing, artificial intelligence, and mission-critical applications. Through this partnership, DCX and DE-CIX are spearheading the future of sustainable data centres, offering customers unparallelled interconnection opportunities while maximising the potential of AI and high-performance computing.
“Partnering with DE-CIX is a pivotal step for DCX as we continue to revolutionise the data centre industry. DE-CIX’s global interconnection expertise and robust ecosystem perfectly complement DCX’s vision of delivering cutting-edge solutions for high-performance computing and AI. Together, we are poised to create a powerful platform that seamlessly connects our customers to the world, enabling unprecedented collaboration and innovation. This partnership exemplifies our commitment to providing best-in-class infrastructure and unlocking the full potential of the AI revolution. With DE-CIX as our trusted partner, we are confident in our ability to reshape the data centre landscape and empower organisations to thrive in the digital age.” George Slessman, Co-Founder and CEO of DCX.
“Mission-critical business applications, AI, and cloud-based applications and services all require connectivity optimised for low latency and high bandwidth. The best way to achieve this is with direct interconnection over an IX, otherwise known as ‘peering’,” according to Ed d’Agostino, VP for DE-CIX North America. “The combination of peering and direct cloud connectivity via the DE-CIX platform, together with the unique high density, customisable power offerings of DCX, offers network operators and organisations in and around Phoenix critical advantages in a competitive market.”
DE-CIX Phoenix is the first neutral, commercially managed IX to serve the southwest region. With this partnership, DE-CIX Phoenix will have eight available data centres across the area, making it the most widely distributed throughout the market. “The powerful collaboration between DE-CIX and DCX will take us and our customers on an extraordinary journey as we redefine the possibilities of the digital age, driving innovation, connectivity, and transformative business outcomes. Together, we are empowering organisations to unleash the full potential of their data and unlock limitless opportunities in the ever-evolving digital landscape,” concluded George Slessman from DCX.
