In recent times, Dutch companies and governments <check!> have been rethinking their backup strategies for datacenter redundancy. While Rotterdam was previously considered as the natural backup location for Amsterdam, more and more are now opting for Frankfurt. This shift is due to the strategic and geographic advantages that Frankfurt offers.
Both Amsterdam and Rotterdam are situated below sea level, making them susceptible to flooding and other natural disasters. Despite significant investments in flood protection measures, Frankfurt's location on higher ground makes it a more secure backup location for data alongside Amsterdam.
Frankfurt is also Germany's financial center and boasts of a well-developed infrastructure, making it an ideal location for a datacenter.
The decision what interconnection partner to use, depends on the ability to transport data seamlessly from one location to another. The presence of NL-ix in both Amsterdam and Frankfurt allows companies to transport data quickly and securely over ultra-low latency routes that ensure redundancy. To provide increased resilience, NL-ix can provide interconnection over its A and B fabric, where the B-fabric is physically separated from the primary network.
Frankfurt's emergence as a backup location for Amsterdam's data networks is a game-changer for the industry. With our flexible and reliable network, NL-ix is well-positioned to meet the growing demand for redundancy in data networks.
Frankfurt, a bustling city in Germany, is about to undergo a major technological transformation in mid-May. With the current increasing demand for bandwidth in Frankfurt, NL-ix needed an upgrade to meet the growing demand of customers.
Therefor NL-ix decided it’s time for a new and improved solution: From mid-May onwards the Nokia 7750 PF will be taking over the reins. The upgrade takes place at the NL-ix datacenters of Interxion and Equinix. The first major customer to connect with the new system is 'Herzner' with 400G.
The upgrade also includes a significant expansion of the backbone from 2x 50 Gbps to 2x 1Tbps, ensuring a seamless experience for all users.
This upgrade marks a significant milestone for Frankfurt's technological development. With a focus on less emissions per MB and high performance, the NL-ix upgrade in Frankfurt to the new Nokia 7750 PF routers and the expansion of its backbone will bring Frankfurt's internet infrastructure to an even more advanced level.
