Co-location data facilitator Interxion has announced that they will be undergoing a massive data center expansion in Europe. They further explained that according to the plan, they will be building two new data centers in Madrid and Brussels and upgrading the other co-location data centers in Paris, Stockholm, Vienna, Amsterdam, and Copenhagen with more space and latest resources.
Interxion say that the massive inclination towards cloud services and a growing economic trend in Europe have been the two prime reasons behind this decision. They further added that with this expansion they will be able to establish a firm foothold in the European market and further their relationship with existing clients as they acquire new ones. Explaining this in detail, David Ruberg, CEO of Interxion commented:
With continuing demand from multiple communities of interest, these investments will allow us to meet the needs of our expanding customer base by adding approximately 15,500 square meters of equipped space. When combined with previously announced expansion projects, Interxion now has active expansion projects across its entire 11 country footprint totaling over 33,000 square meters which will increase the Company’s equipped space by over 25% compared to the end of 3Q 2017
According to Interxion, the Madrid data center which has over €63 million of investment and the Brussels data center which has over €18 million of investment will be available by the first quarter of 2019 and the first quarter of 2018 respectively. They further added that the remaining data centers undergoing expansion will be available by second half of 2018.
