Working from home is now the new normal for most of the DE-CIX team, and so are digital events. For our anniversary show on 26 June, we hope you will all join us online at 11am CEST or 4:30pm CEST! This is an event not to be missed, and while we are a little bit disappointed not to be able to meet you in person, we are looking forward to meeting even more people online. You can already register here, and personal invitations will follow soon.
The DE-CIX TechMeeting will also take place online, and in this newsletter we'll report about many more topics that also show how online is the new normal: A case study about e-learning in the UAE, the DirectCLOUD launch in India, and two new white papers showing how the new Microsoft Azure Peering Service delivers the most direct way to Microsoft's cloud services.
Enjoy the newsletter.
