LONDON – 28 June 2012 – INTERXION HOLDING NV (NYSE: INXN), a leading European provider of carrier-neutral colocation data centre services, has announced that Fifosys, a leading provider of IT services, will deliver a range of cloud-based ‘as-a-service’ solutions from Interxion’s Cloud Hub in its London data centre.
Fifosys delivers outsourced IT services to more than 100 companies, supporting around 3,000 end-users.
Historically it has delivered its services from a data centre in Maidenhead, but due to performance and latency issues, as well as the need for increased connectivity options, Fifosys turned to Interxion. Interxion’s ability to guarantee sub millisecond latency as well as direct connections to a large selection of carriers was a significant factor in its selection. Fifosys now has a ‘Hot-Hot’ configuration in place between its original data centre and Interxion’s London site.
Richard Palmer, Technical Services Manager at Fifosys, commented: “The primary concerns for our customers when moving their IT to the cloud are around reliability, security and performance.
Interxion’s guaranteed low-latency connections, combined with its broad range of carrier partnerships and robust secure infrastructure, ensures we can offer our customers peace of mind as they look to adopt our services. This partnership will play a vital role in enabling us to deliver everything from desktop as a service, through to online backup, with the guarantee of high service levels and the best possible uptime.”
“This announcement further reflects our commitment to providing a world-class infrastructure for organisations such as Fifosys that are looking to develop successful cloud-based services,” said Greg McCulloch, Managing Director at Interxion. “Furthermore through this relationship we are able to grow our cloud community and offer our customers a greater choice of cloud based service providers.”
