By Alastair Kane, VP for Europe, Zayo Group
Customers all over the world in bandwidth-hungry segments come to Zayo Group for low-latency, fibre-based, on-net connections that support demanding activities such as high frequency trading and premium digital content transmission.
Zayo, and AboveNet who Zayo acquired in 2012, have a long history with Interxion beginning with connectivity to its London Data Centre 12 years ago. Since then, we've extended our presence into their Amsterdam, Frankfurt and Paris facilities, in line with our customers' European growth.
A US-based company, we made our first foray into Europe at Interxion's City of London data centre over 12 years ago. Since then, we've extended our presence into their Amsterdam, Frankfurt and Paris facilities in line with our customers' European growth.
We've been pleased to see Interxion expand its footprint over the years and build a sizeable customer base in the segments our two companies prioritise. We know that Pan European enterprises value the convenience and peace of mind that comes from working with the same strong pairing of Interxion and Zayo brands throughout their operations.
Over the years we've developed an excellent relationship with Interxion: our offerings are complementary and we're both open to creating mutually beneficial business opportunities. Interxion's neutrality means their colocation customers can trust them for an impartial view on connectivity options. And for us, being part of Interxion's connectivity hub additionally opens up opportunities in the wholesale carrier market, including with mobile operators.
Choosing Interxion as our European data centre partner has proved to be the right business decision for Zayo. We're very happy with the partnership we have with Interxion and look forward to continued collaboration and potential further expansion.
