MADRID, November 13 2008 - Interxion, a leading European operator of data centres, today announced a five million Euro agreement with Spain’s public postal service, Correos. Under the terms of the agreement, Interxion Spain will provide Correos with 300 m2 of connectivity-rich equipped data centre space and 24x7 support in a purpose-built section of its Madrid data centre.
Interxion’s new data centre space, scheduled to be fully operational by January 2009, will house Correos’ next generation of corporate IT systems, supporting all of the company’s applications for years to come. It will also allow Correos to completely duplicate its processing, management, storage and backup capacity.
“It makes good business sense to house our equipment with Interxion, as they are specialist suppliers with an excellent track record, advanced infrastructure, and guaranteed capacity and availability,” said Rubén Muñoz, Director of Technology and Systems, Correos. “To achieve similar levels of service in-house would require a much higher level of investment in real estate and infrastructure, not to mention specialist personnel.”
“Given today’s economic climate, more and more companies are entrusting their systems to established data centre operators rather than building their own,” said Robert Assink, Interxion Spain MD. “Budget-conscious organisations like Correos recognize that they can achieve their strategic IT objectives without risking capital expenditure on top-tier data centre infrastructure. Outsourcing to Interxion also means they can enjoy greater flexibility, better connectivity, and an instant team of dedicated professionals.”
