(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – INTERXION HOLDING NV, (NYSE: INXN), a leading European provider of carrier-neutral colocation data centre services, announced today that it has completed the upgrade and expansion of its DUS1 data centre. The expansion and upgrade of the facility is in response to consistently rising demand from customers in the digital media, carrier and enterprise sectors.
A number of current and new customers have already taken advantage of this new capacity by successfully completing deployments that are now live. These customers include freenet Datenkommunikations GmbH, GasLINE, Interoute Germany GmbH, KPN International, Telefónica Germany, Unitymedia and Vodafone Group Services GmbH.
Interxion’s Düsseldorf data centre is the only site in the Düsseldorf metropolitan area that houses the two most important regional Internet Exchanges, DE-CIX Düsseldorf and ECIX. In addition the data centre gives direct access to more than 50 networks of carriers, ISPs and CDNs, providing ideal conditions for all companies relying on seamless connectivity and optimum network latency.
The new phase of Interxion’s data centre will provide an additional 500 sqm of equipped space as well as a significant upgrade of the existing power and air conditioning infrastructure of both the current and new build-out phase of the data centre. The total grid power available at DUS1 is above 20 MVA, enabling the site to support high-density power deployment configurations, a key requirement for the latest virtualised servers.
Interxion’s Düsseledorf site offers the highest levels of redundancy, reliability and standards-based operation, with up to 2N 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.
“Our Düsseldorf data centre combines state-of-the-art infrastructure with outstanding connectivity and provides the ideal environment for existing and prospective customers demanding robust infrastructure and optimum connectivity.” commented Peter Knapp, Managing Director of Interxion Germany.
