News
  • Net space Increased by 525m2, brings overall equipped space at LON1 data centre to 5,155m2
  • Driven by strong customer demand in financial services, carrier, cloud service providers, and digital media sectors

LONDON 8 December 2010 – Interxion, a leading European provider of carrier-neutral colocation data centres services, today announced the expansion of its City of London data centre . The expansion of the facility is in response to consistently rising demand from customers in the digital media, carrier and cloud service provider sectors. In addition, Interxion has had particular success in financial services, attracting in excess of 100 trading & investment firms, requiring low-latency connectivity to the liquidity venues located at, or within close proximity to, Interxion’s City of London data centre.

The new phase of Interxion’s data centre will provide an additional 525m2 of net space, increasing Interxion’s overall equipped capacity in London to 5,155m2. The project also includes the delivery of an additional 850 kVA of high-density power to the site, helping meet the growing need for energy-efficient, high-power-density infrastructure, a key requirement for the latest virtualised servers. Work has already started on the expansion and is scheduled to be completed by May 2011.

Interxion’s London site offers the highest levels of redundancy, reliability and standards-based operation, with 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. Power monitoring and management systems also enable customers to monitor their power usage, streamlining their operations to optimise Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE).

“Thanks to our unique City location, outstanding connectivity and coverage, we have been able to create strong communities of interest in the financial services, digital media and cloud services sectors, ” said Greg McCulloch, Managing Director, Interxion UK. “Through this expansion we are able to continue to enhance our facilities and build on our standards to support and grow these and other customer communities, offering them the best possible environment for managing and developing their mission-critical applications.”
