We offer private connectivity from their colocation space to our public cloud, private cloud, storage, and dedicated server offerings so they can migrate and grow in the manner that best suits them.

Serverius initiates the start of a new internet exchange: the AS-IX It’s a non commercial peering initiative between several network and datacenter owners which are offering free 10G peering ports and a 1G VLAN from their own network PoP locations.

“The AS-IX is much more powerful than conventional internet exchanges” Sergey Petukhin says. “Also the AS-IX network range is quite large from the start. Members can already connect on many places in the Netherlands. From the upper north to the Amsterdam region. Therefore the AS-IX is much more than another new internet exchange initiative like there are many“.


The AS-IX is started by Serverius because we where offerring free L2 data transport between our own network PoP locations for years. In August 2017 this year a peering VLAN with route servers was added to exchange data-traffic between BGP users. Also non Serverius clients where allowed to join the party and in August 2017 Atom86 became Partner which expanded the AS-IX outside Serverius. Later on this year some other networks will join. By offering free 10G peering ports with a 1G L2 VLAN per client the main goal was achieved. Because of the success of the peering exchange and free VLANs, the Serverius engineers changed the project environment to a professional Autonomous Internet exchange point. A new name was born: AS-IX.

Of course, the AS-IX it is not the replacement of our friends like AMS-IX, DE-CIX and NL-IX. The AS-IX offers the same functionality but with a smaller network and less users and therefore less data-traffic. Therefore it’s a good way to transport local data-traffic between the members. And it’s free, every Mbps will cost a user really noting. Not only for some period, but lifetime.
