Verizon's (NYSE: VZ) cloud services subsidiary Terremark is extending its European reach by opening a Network Access Point (NAP) in Amsterdam.
Terremark's new Amsterdam NAP facility.
Located in the Amsterdam Airport Schiphol Area, the Amsterdam NAP has 25,000 square feet of data center space.
But the new NAP isn't just about space alone. The NAP is directly connected to the AMS-IX, meaning that Terremark's enterprise and government customers can get access to the Internet exchange's over 300 members while reducing network latency and lowering transit costs.
For Terremark, the opening of the new NAP in Amsterdam is part of a broader initiative to grow its European data center presence. To date, Terremark now has 10 data centers in Europe, including other sites in Spain, the UK and Turkey, to serve its global enterprise customers.
