Untitled[edit]

There was a nice Reuters news report on AMS-IX In Amsterdam, Internet freedom reigns. This link goes to a copy of the report at Yahoo! News, where I think they last about two weeks before disapearing. I don't have time tonight to integrate some of the info into the Wikipedia article, but I'll try to come back in a couple of days and do it if no one else does.

The picture in this article is from equipment operated by the RIPE NCC and hosted at NIKHEF. It is only one of many anycast instances of K-root (the original installation is in London). I'm sure a better picture could be found of a switch actually owned by the Amsterdam Internet Exchange. -- 00:21, 13 February 2007 (UTC)

"The AMS-IX is the largest Internet Exchange in the world, when measured by number of members, or by traffic": shouldn't this be "when measured by number of members or by peaktraffic? Because if you look at average traffic (in the source article for this data, List of Internet Exchange Points by size, the LINX is bigger. KryzMasta 09:06, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

Connection to Wikipedia[edit]

"Networks connect to AMS-IX, not servers. Also, there are 300 networks/members connected to AMS-IX, there is no reason why these 2 are special and should be mentioned here." I think these 2 examples are quite important en interesting to mention here. Sure the rest of the 300+ members are not interesting to mention here, but the K-root server and a wikimedia connection is.Zae (talk) 01:27, 17 November 2008 (UTC)

Note: Zae's text above, which quotes this edit by Mark Bergsma, refers to the following passage:

==Connected servers== [[Image:Ams-ix.k.root-servers.net.jpg|thumb|The AMS-IX mirror of the K-[[root nameserver]]]] Since August 1, 2003, a mirror of the K-[[root nameserver]] is available on AMS-IX and its backup [[Netherlands Internet Exchange|NL-ix]].<ref>[http://k.root-servers.org/nodes/ams-ix/ K-root Node Amsterdam]. [[RIPE NCC]]. Retrieved on [[2008-10-01]].</ref> In December 2007, [[Wikimedia Foundation]] and AMS-IX joined forces for the "good of the internet". AMS-IX provides a Gigabit Ethernet connection at no cost to Wikimedia's Amsterdam datacentre.<ref>[http://www.ams-ix.net/news/archive/2007/071212_Wikimedia_Press_Release.pdf Wikimedia Press Release].
