• 2,500 m2 data centre now ready for service
• space pre-sold to customers including RTL interactive, Arcor and Plus.line AG
• 23rd centre in Interxion European footprint
Frankfurt, July 23rd, 2008 – Interxion, a leading European operator of carrier-neutral data centres, today announced that its fifth Frankfurt data centre is now ready for service. The data centre has been opened 10 weeks ahead of the previously announced date in order to meet strong customer demand. A sizeable portion of the 2,500 m2 data centre has been pre-sold to customers including RTL interactive, Arcor and Plus.line AG. The opening of the new data centre means that Interxion now operates 23 data centres in 11 countries across Europe.
The new data centre provides secure and energy efficient infrastructure for next generation IT and connectivity solutions. It reinforces the position of Interxion’s Frankfurt facilities as Germany’s largest data hub, connecting 80% of the members of DE-CIX, the Frankfurt-based German internet exchange. The facility can supply up to 30 kW of power per cabinet, enough for the latest high-density server configurations. As with Interxion’s last three Frankfurt data centres it also features free air cooling as standard.
“The fact that a considerable part of the infrastructure is already in use and that Interxion has finished the expansion significantly earlier than planned shows the dynamism of this business as well as the growth of Frankfurt as a base for enterprise,” commented Peter Kania, Managing Director, Frankfurt Economic Development GmbH.
“The early completion of this facility is good news for current and prospective customers, and demonstrates our commitment and capabilities at a time of strong demand,” said Peter Knapp, Managing Director, Interxion Germany. “A key driver is the unparalleled connectivity we provide. DE-CIX members and others organisations can now access over 70 carriers and 80 ISPs – one of the highest carrier and network provider densities in Europe.”
Interxion is a leading European provider of carrier neutral data centres. Headquartered in Schiphol-Rijk, The Netherlands, Interxion serves its customers from 23 carrier-neutral data centres located in 13 cities across 11 European countries.
