The Amsterdam Internet Exchange (AMS-IX) is the largest internet exchange in the world. The benefits of connecting to it are numerous: it provides European peering possibilities beyond measure, it will improve your network performance, you will be able to reduce upstream connectivity to name but a few of the benefits. Once you have decided to connect to the AMS-IX, it might be difficult to run your business smoothly from outside of Europe.
If you are working in a time zone way ahead or behind Central European Time, you will only have a small window in which regular office hours overlap. For installation of your networking or security equipment you will either have to fly in yourself or find a reliable local AMS-IX partner. Once the equipment has been installed, you might need remote hands for troubleshooting and support. In case of failures, you will need someone to replace the faulty component.
