DE-CIX has now deployed a switch in Cyxtera’s Chicago data center (ORD1). This deployment marks the first Internet Exchange to be available in any of the company’s Chicago data center facilities. The platform will be fully interconnected with the Cyxtera Digital Exchange, a multi-site layer 2 fabric extending access to Cyxtera’s ORD2 and ORD3 data centers, enabling seamless connectivity to customers from any of the three Cyxtera data center facilities serving the Chicago metro market. 

Cyxtera is a great addition to DE-CIX Chicago, not only because they are a large player in the Chicago market, but they also have their Digital Exchange platform providing seamless connectivity within the metro market between their facilities. The partnership with Cyxtera exemplifies how DE-CIX identifies new partners and facilities with their platform can add value. DE-CIX Chicago is available from over 13 data centers throughout the market, including Cyxtera. DE-CIX Chicago is interconnected to DE-CIX Dallas, New York and Richmond, offering fully redundant, low-latency private network connections across its North American platform.
