For more than two decades, DE-CIX stands for peering. This fundamental basis will not change, but new services are emerging on the horizon. DE-CIX is an enabler for an eco-system of networks; and in this eco-system, interconnection needs increase. One example: We see a tremendous need for secure and easy cloud connections. Therefore, the DE-CIX DirectCLOUD service is now also available remotely from Hamburg, Munich, and Dusseldorf. And we are happy to announce a new partner. We'll keep you posted on new services and look forward to going into the future of interconnection - together with you.
