Webzilla Joins the PLIX and NIX.CZ Internet Exchanges

AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS -- (Marketwired) -- 05/19/14 -- Webzilla has joined Internet Exchanges in Poland (PLIX) and Czech Republic (NIX.CZ). The company adds them to its existing network of exchanges, including the world's biggest IXs in Germany (DE-CIX) and the Netherlands (AMS-IX).

Internet exchange, or IX, is the physical infrastructure through which Internet service providers exchange traffic. The first IX was the Commercial Internet Exchange in Santa Clara, California. Currently, there are 205 IXs in 153 areas around the world. IXs connect many networks across the globe to create a "network of networks". The benefits of such collaboration are reduced cost, better latency and bandwidth, as well as extra redundancy. Another plus for the IX participants is the stronger connection to more remote regions.

NIX.CZ is the largest neutral IX in the Czech Republic and is in the top 10 list of European IXs. NIX.CZ connects 119 networks and its data flow peak is currently at 286.5Gbps with capacity of 1506.5Gbps. In 2010 the exchange migrated from a "ring" topology to a virtualized "dual star", which provides not only greater stability to the whole platform but also simplifies further development.

With peaks of 303.3Gbps, PLIX holds more than 350 active ports and is the only neutral IX point in Poland. Given its location, the exchange offers growth opportunities and extremely low latency to Poland and Eastern Europe.

Apart from DE-CIX and AMS-IX, Webzilla already works with 12 other internet exchanges. Working with the Czech and Polish IXs will further improve the company's redundancy and will offer its customers the lowest possible latency in the region. Significantly improving its IX portfolio, Webzilla will collaborate with other internet service providers to optimize its connections to distant regions, by utilizing their networks.

"We are very proud of the fact that we have joined the biggest internet exchanges in Poland and Czech Republic. Our private network's redundancy is already at a very high level, however we are constantly on the move and try to improve in everyway possible", said Konstantin Bezruchenko, CTO of Webzilla. "By connecting networks, the exchanges minimize latency not only in their regions but remote areas too. They also reduce costs by lowering the traffic we need to move through our private backbone. Utilizing the internet exchanges is a sign of growth and these 2 additions prove our dedication to continue providing the best possible services."
