AMSTERDAM – 11 August 2016 – INTERXION HOLDING NV (NYSE: INXN), a leading provider of carrier and cloud-neutral colocation data centre services in Europe, today announced that Zenlayer, a global network and service provider of SDN technology, has installed a Point of Presence (PoP) in Interxion’s data centre campus in Madrid. With this new PoP, Zenlayer broadens its global footprint and further enhances its colocation and hosting capabilities across Europe.
Zenlayer’s expansion to Madrid builds upon its existing partnership with Interxion in Europe. Since 2014, Interxion has supported Zenlayer’s operations from its campus in Frankfurt – Europe’s prime interconnectivity hub.
Interxion’s Madrid data centre campus offers Zenlayer interconnectivity access to the Spanish market – a key market for the organisation. Crucially, colocating at the Madrid campus gives Zenlayer direct access to ESpanix and DE-CIX, Spain’s premier Internet exchange providers, also hosted at the facility. The rich interconnectivity at the facility means Zenlayer can optimise the reach and performance of their networks and reduce the cost of IP transit.
With its expansion into Spain, Zenlayer further bolsters its European backbone and improves user experience on its network. In particular, Zenlayer is committed to supporting key Chinese customers such as LeEco (formerly Letv), YY (NASDAQ: YY) and UCloud as they hasten their development overseas to reach a wider global audience.
Joe Zhu, CEO and Founder of Zenlayer, said, "We are dedicated to providing the best global hosting services to our customers. Interxion is one of the premier data centre providers in Europe, and we look forward to collaborating more with them as we grow our presence worldwide.”
Doug Loewe, VP International Sales at Interxion, said “Together with their deployment with Interxion in Frankfurt, Zenlayer is now perfectly placed to offer their services across the European continent. The interconnectivity we offer from MAD1 means Zenlayer can extend its services out to Spain, and beyond. Like all of our data centres, Interxion’s Madrid data centre campus provides exceptional reliability, 99.999% availability and 24x7 operational support, so Zenlayer can rely on Interxion to deliver a best in class service as they expand their operations across Europe.”
