AMSTERDAM – 16th October, 2014 – Today, INTERXION HOLDING NV (NYSE: INXN), a leading European provider of cloud and carrier-neutral colocation data centre services, announced that customers can now access AWS Direct Connect through Interxion Cloud Connect.

Due to strong demand for AWS services from all Interxion’s segments (Enterprise, Financial Service, System Integrator and Digital Media), Interxion has joined the APN program as a partner supporting access to AWS Direct Connect, Amazon’s private connect service offering, from the Interxion London data centre campus.

Private connections provide dedicated, secure and higher performance networking solutions compared to the public internet and are designed for customers implementing high performance hybrid IT solutions. Interxion Cloud Connect provides a single interface solution to customers colocated in its data centres, enabling a simple and flexible way to build such connections to their cloud provider(s) of choice.

“Preliminary findings from a study by IDG Connect, amongst 650 IT decision-makers across Europe, highlights that the volume of workloads operated in the Public Cloud would increase by 68% if key concerns around networking, security and performance were resolved. Private connect services, such as AWS Direct Connect, address these concerns and are now accessible through Interxion Cloud Connect, enabling our customers to accelerate the implementation of their hybrid IT strategy” said Vincent in’t Veld, Director of Cloud Segment at Interxion.

Further deployments for Interxion Cloud Connect are planned in Frankfurt and Amsterdam. For more information please visit our website.
