INEX to Locate in Two Interxion Dublin Data Centres



AMSTERDAM & DUBLIN, 13th October 2009 - Interxion, a leading European operator of carrier-neutral data centres, and the Internet Neutral Exchange (INEX), Ireland’s Internet Peering Point, today announced a partnership agreement that will extend INEX’s infrastructure into Interxion’s two Dublin data centres. The agreement will enable Interxion customers to reduce latency and transit costs by peering directly with the 42 IP networks currently connected to INEX. For existing INEX Members, this agreement also provides the opportunity to deploy resilient connections to the exchange infrastructure in the security of Interxion’s existing DUB1 facility and the recently announced DUB2 data centre. Interxion’s two data centres will provide over 2,000m2 of equipped space, with significant additional space available for future expansion.

The new INEX POP will go live in DUB1 this month and DUB 2 on completion of the facility in early 2010. Locating in the Interxion facilities will give INEX access to state-of-the-art, fault-tolerant and fully redundant equipped infrastructure with an SLA of up to 99.999% and high-density power as standard. 25 leading carriers and ISPs are currently housed with Interxion Ireland.

“INEX is dedicated to delivering a world class IP peering service to its members and key to this is ensuring that the exchange infrastructure is in place in the key data centres,” said Barry Rhodes, Chief Executive of INEX. “By hosting our newest POP in Interxion, we are reaching out to new prospective members for the exchange who are already located there and also providing our existing members with an additional alternative for resilient connections to the network in a world-class, carrier-neutral data centre.”

Our new, closer working relationship with INEX confirms our position as Ireland’s leading connectivity hub and brings benefits to both our customers and INEX members,” said Tanya Duncan, Interxion Ireland Managing Director. "At Interxion, INEX members can build out secure, serviced network and content-delivery infrastructure as and when they need it, and Interxion customers can gain improvements in quality and cost-effectiveness by peering directly at INEX.”
