FRANKFURT -- Interxion, a leading European operator of carrier-neutral data centres, today announced that its fifth Frankfurt data centre is now ready for service. The data centre has been opened 10 weeks ahead of the previously announced date in order to meet strong customer demand. A sizeable portion of the 2,500 m2 data centre has been pre-sold to customers including RTL interactive, Arcor and Plus.line AG. The opening of the new data centre means that Interxion now operates 23 data centres in 11 countries across Europe.

The new data centre provides secure and energy efficient infrastructure for next generation IT and connectivity solutions. It reinforces the position of Interxion’s Frankfurt facilities as Germany’s largest data hub, connecting 80% of the members of DE-CIX, the Frankfurt-based German internet exchange. The facility can supply up to 30 kW of power per cabinet, enough for the latest high-density server configurations. As with Interxion’s last three Frankfurt data centres it also features free air cooling as standard.

“The fact that a considerable part of the infrastructure is already in use and that Interxion has finished the expansion significantly earlier than planned shows the dynamism of this business as well as the growth of Frankfurt as a base for enterprise,” commented Peter Kania, Managing Director, Frankfurt Economic Development GmbH.
