SoftLayer Amsterdam Data Center (AMS01): Does it Measure Up?

Last month, Kevin Hazard hopped on a plane from Houston to London to attend Cloud Expo Europe. Because he was more or less “in the neighborhood” of our newest data center in Amsterdam, he was able to take a short flight to The Netherlands to do some investigatory journalism … err … “to visit the AMS01 team.”

Is AMS01 worthy of the SoftLayer name? … How does it differ from our US facilities? … Why is everything written in Dutch at the Amsterdam airport?

Kevin answers these questions as he shows us the similarities and differences at the data center in Amsterdam.

*When it came time to choose some background music for this video, we asked some of the AMS SLayers for their favorite Dutch artists, and we were introduced to Don Diablo: … Check him out for some great remixes.*
