Colocation and data center services provider Interxion today announced the opening of its sixth Frankfurt data centre. The new site brings Interxion’s total data center footprint to 28 sites and reinforces the company’s Frankfurt facilities as a key European connectivity hub, connecting 200 of the 350 customers of DE-CIX, the Frankfurt-based German Internet exchange.
“Interxion’s continuously growing footprint represents an extremely important part of the infrastructure that has made Frankfurt a major Internet and data hub in Europe,” said Petra Roth, Lord Mayor of Frankfurt. “The advanced technology of the local data centres enables secure and high-speed data transfer and high availability of large amounts of data world-wide. This is a crucial prerequisite for the competitiveness of business enterprises as well as for the performance of modern public administrations.”
The new site provides 2N UPS, N+1 generator backup and cooling as well as the most advanced alarm and monitoring systems.
“The completion of our sixth site in Frankfurt reflects the continuing demand for high-quality data centres and reinforces our position as Germany’s central data hub,” said Peter Knapp, Managing Director, Interxion Germany. “We are particularly proud of the fact that we can offer additional data centre capacity, allowing companies to effectively run their mission-critical ICT infrastructure and directly peer with over 150 carriers and ISPs colocated at our Frankfurt campus.”
