INTERXION HOLDING NV (NYSE:INXN), a leading European provider of carrier-neutral colocation data centre services, today announced the expansion of its Vienna data centre.
The expansion, which will increase equipped space by approximately 1,300 sqm, is being driven by the growing demand for colocation space and services, in particular from cloud-based service providers and the enterprise sector. As part of the expansion project, Interxion is also adding capacity to its power and cooling infrastructure. The first phase of the data centre expansion is scheduled for completion in the third quarter of 2011.
Interxion's Vienna site offers a wide range of high density power configurations and connectivity solutions, including access to over 90 carriers and the Vienna Internet Exchange (VIX). This allows Interxion to meet the wide range of services and connectivity choices its customers demand, including high-availability infrastructure, seamless connectivity and optimum network latency.
The data centre is one of Interxion's 13 Cloud Hubs across Europe that provides organisations with the optimum environment for the cost-effective development, launch and management of successful cloud-based services.
"Interxion, as a carrier-neutral data centre provider, has become a gateway for all major networks and content distribution platforms across Europe. This expansion reflects the continuing demand for high-quality data centres, especially from cloud service providers and those operating in the finance and digital media sectors. Furthermore, the expansion significantly strengthens Interxion's position as one of the leading providers of highly resilient and high-quality data centres in Austria," said Christian Studeny, Managing Director, Interxion Austria.
Interxion's Vienna site offers high levels of redundancy, reliability and standards-based operation, with up to 2N on UPS power and N+1 cooling, as well as advanced alarm and monitoring systems. The new space has been designed using Interxion's energy-efficient modular architecture, with free cooling and maximum-efficiency components as standard.
