Miller Leasing for DE-CIX
Without data congestion at the world's largest Internet exchange
Whether you start a Google search, stream a series or use a web service: Virtually nothing runs on the German Internet without DE-CIX. Among other things, the company operates the world's largest Internet exchange in Frankfurt. Since 2006, DE-CIX has relied on IT specialist Miller Leasing to finance its rapidly growing data volume.
Intelligently financing rapid expansion
"When we implemented the first project for DE-CIX in 2006, data throughput of the Frankfurt node peaked at around 300 gigabits per second," recalls account manager Heike Habermann. Today, "peak traffic" is more than 33 times higher - and the trend is constantly rising. The same applies to the number of network operators and other players connected. This growth must be smartly financed. For this DE-CIX relies on future-oriented platforms: After all, data throughput continues to grow, as do the requirements for professional operation and high performance.
Designing customized financing solutions
The at times explosive growth of data volumes requires a permanent expansion of the IT infrastructure. Miller Leasing coordinates the tightly scheduled projects, secures contracts with infrastructure providers and finances the systems. This requires a profound understanding of IT and legal know-how, as suppliers often specify exact delivery and payment schedules.
Miller Leasing thereby provides DE-CIX with the support it needs to implement its projects reliably and with drive. The result of this trusting partnership is something we all experience every day - be it at work or whilst streaming a TV series in the evening!
"We are fortunate to have an IT specialist like Miller Leasing by our side. Their high level of commitment and willingness to arrange financing to meet our needs, always gives us the right amount of leeway in the implementation of our projects."
