Interxion selected by Gigas. Interxion (INXN) announced that Gigas, a Spanish company specialized in providing cloud hosting services, has decided to host its cloud service platform in Interxion’s Madrid data center, from where it offers its services to its clients. Witnessing rapid growth, Gigas needed to be part of a cloud ecosystem offering excellent connectivity and scalability for its cloud hosting service platform. Interxion was selected because it could offer a quality service that could adapt to its needs and growth, as well as access to Interxion’s connectivity, high availability, and reliability. “The Interxion data centre offers us guaranteed high power density and optimal conditions for the cooling and energy availability, which is essential to us due to the high levels of power required for our cloud platform. Our platform is located inside a ‘cube’, a cold aisle containment enclosure, providing optimised cooling along with enhanced security. The connectivity-rich environment and direct access from Interxion to the Spanish Internet Exchange ESpanix allow us to have network choice and offer competitive services aligned with our business goals”, said José Antonio Arribas, Founder and CTO of Gigas.
