• Managed IX

  • Are you a data center operator looking for an additional revenue stream or an edge for your competition?

    Let MidWest-IX create an exchange fabric in your data center.  Having an active exchange in your facilities gives you a value add for your customers, makes their experience better, and allows more exposure for your clients and your facility.

    We offer three types of exchanges for Data Center partners

    Resale
    You have your own switch connected to our exchange fabric.  From that switch your customers connect into the FD-IX fabric.  This is ideal for smaller data centers or hosting providers

    Standalone
    A standalone IX node is a fully functioning IX in a data center.  This is geared toward markets where there are little to no Internet Exchanges or FD-IX might be a better fit than another exchange.

    Connected-IX
    A connected IX takes advnatage of an established node to bring connectivity into your data center.
