About the Arizona Internet ExchangeThe Arizona Internet Exchange (AZIX), located at i/o Data Centers' PHOENIX location, announced it is open for business on Jan 17th, 2011. The Exchange was designed to decrease costs for providers locally and improve content delivery speeds. It will also help in fostering a community of content and access providers in the Arizona market.
Two Brocade switches are located in i/o Data Centers' PHOENIX Meet-Me-Room, operated by Limelight Networks. The switches are interconnected with a 2*10GE LAG, providing a Layer-2 platform over all available access ports. Each participant receives an IPv4 address (and optionally an IPv6 address) out of the AZIX peering LAN (188.8.131.52/24 & 2001:504:18::/64), to be able to interconnect across the peering platform. With i/o Data Centers offering free cross-connects within the Meet-Me-Room, connecting to AZIX is as easy as filling in our order form.
The Arizona Internet Exchange has been established with the help of i/o Data Centers and is operated by Limelight Networks.
i/o designs, engineers, and delivers data center as a service (DCaaS) for some of the world's largest enterprises, governments and service providers with an always-on service level.
