In July, we completed the migration from DE-CIX FRA 7, the former core node at DE-CIX's largest site in Frankfurt, to DE-CIX FRA12, the new core node with the first automated patch robot. In August, we had to clean up and, finally, leave the old place.
So while the migrated customers were already peering at the new DE-CIX FRA 12 site, the old equipment at DE-CIX FRA 7 was taken down and decommissioned. We pulled out all the cables, racks, and equipment, and transported them to their new homes. And while at our new core node the first automated patch robot, called patchy, was running and patching customers, we cleaned out the old site.
