AMS-IX

March 18, 2020

Due to the exceptional COVID-19 situation, we would like to inform you how AMS-IX handles the crisis. We have implemented precautionary measures to ensure the health of our employees and the continuity of our platform. These measures have been put in place in light of the directive by the Dutch government and the Rijksinstituut voor Volksgezondheid en Milieu to prevent further spreading of COVID-19. We are keeping a close eye on the implemented measures and adapt when and where this is needed.

We are implementing the following measures:

  • Our first priority is the health and safety of our employees, while ensuring the continuity of our services. Therefore, we have decided that all our employees will work from home and our office will be closed until further notice.
  • This also means all our “physical” visits and meetings will now take place virtually.
  • AMS-IX is recognised as vital infrastructure by the Dutch government, and we have secured access to data centres and critical suppliers.
  • As a result of the exceptional situation, Internet usage is playing an ever-greater role and we have seen an increase of traffic on our platform. AMS-IX is able to handle the existing and expected traffic growth without any problems. Even if the traffic were to double in volume AMS-IX would not have any issue handling it.

Business will continue as usual, which means you can reach AMS-IX via the normal channels. In case you have any additional questions related to these safety measures, you can reach us via email.
