WASHINGTON, Nov. 7, 2013

WASHINGTON, Nov. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- DuPont Fabros Technology, Inc. (NYSE:
DFT), and AMS-IX USA Inc. today announced that they have entered into a
definitive agreement for AMS-IX USA Inc. to build and operate a neutral
Internet Exchange in DuPont Fabros Technology, Inc.'s ("DFT") NJ1 data center
located in Piscataway, New Jersey.

The AMS-IX New Jersey node will be built within DFT's NJ1 data center and will
become part of AMS-IX New York; a neutral distributed Internet exchange point
for the New York/New Jersey area. AMS-IX is based in Amsterdam and is the
largest Internet Exchange in the world, connecting over 600 IP networks from
nearly 60 countries with around 1,130 ports.

DuPont Fabros Technology has built a robust tri-lateral underground conduit
system that encompasses a 3 mile radius of its NJ1 data center. This conduit
system provides three fully diverse and redundant underground fiber entrances
into the facility. At present, there are 20 network carriers including the New
York Stock Exchange (NYSE) Secure Financial Transaction Infrastructure (SFTI)
Network which provide connectivity services to DFT's NJ1 customers.
Additionally, NJ1 offers its customers connectivity to hubs in the NY/NJ area
and to sub-sea cable landing stations in Long Island and New Jersey connecting
the Eastern seaboard of the United States to Europe and South America.

The AMS-IX New Jersey node at NJ1 will be built both as a core-switch and as
an edge-switch site of AMS-IX New York. The switching architecture will be
based on Brocade MLX routers with full peering services provided by AMS-IX USA
Inc., while DFT will provide Cross Connects to the exchange. AMS-IX USA Inc.'s
agreement supports DFT's plan to host an Open-IX certified Internet Exchange
in each of its four markets. The AMS-IX New Jersey node at NJ1 is expected to
be live before the end of 2013 and AMS-IX New York will offer incentivized
port pricing to DFT's customers through the end of 2014.

The Open Internet Exchange (Open-IX) Association is a member-governed
non-profit organization working at a fast pace to drive the expansion of
neutral Internet Exchanges, reduce interconnection complexity and cost, and
improve access to networks within critical interconnection markets. DFT and
AMS-IX USA Inc. intend to apply for Open-IX certification of the NJ1 data
center and AMS-IX New York respectively. Open-IX information can be found at:

"DFT's Piscataway data center provides us with a great peering location
outside of Manhattan. It is strategically located in New Jersey and enables a
straight line in the shortest possible distance East of Chicago," said Job
Whitteman, CEO at AMS-IX. "We expect this Internet Exchange to evolve into a
major interconnection hub outside of Manhattan furthering complementing DFT's
interconnection services for its customers."

"We are pleased to be partnering with AMS-IX USA Inc. in making our NJ1 data
center in Piscataway the first New Jersey site to be part of the AMS-IX New
York distributed internet exchange," said Vinay Nagpal, Director of Carrier
Relations at DFT. "The AMS-IX New Jersey node at NJ1 will offer DFT customers
a unique opportunity to directly peer their IP traffic on the AMS-IX New
York's distributed peering fabric and experience improved network
