365 Data Centers and SFMIX to Expand Internet Exchange into San Jose

365 Data Centers and the San Francisco Metropolitan Internet Exchange (SFMIX) announced a partnership to expand the Internet exchange into 365's colocation facility in San Jose, California (534 Stockton Avenue).

SFMIX is a non-profit organization that offers core IX fabric locations within the San Francisco Bay Area, and its exchanges are only placed within carrier-neutral data centers to facilitate more carrier choice, service options and high-speed connections.

"SFMIX is proud to be the only non-profit Internet Exchange in the Bay Area market and we're excited to continue our dramatic growth within 365's Silicon Valley facility," said Matt Peterson, co-founder of SFMIX. "The carrier-neutral meet-me room, redundant power systems, and extensive compliance certifications make 365's San Jose location an ideal peering location for networks of all types."

365 Data Centers recently launched a similar venture at its carrier-neutral facility in Nashville, Tenn., the NashIX, creating Nashville's first IX to lower latency and eliminate the need for costly long haul transport to regional exchange hubs.

"The Bay Area is a mature Internet exchange market that has been dominated by just a few IXs, resulting in higher prices for interconnection," said Keao Caindec, Chief Commercial Officer, 365 Data Centers. "Linking networks, data centers and content together to deliver improved performance and lower costs for our clients and their customers is a big win for the Bay Area."
