The Sourcing Company and HPE launch new hybrid cloud solution for the Dutch market from Interxion Amsterdam

Enterprises in the Netherlands can now benefit from secure private cloud based on Microsoft Azure Stack and delivered from Interxion’s Amsterdam campus

AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS – 12 September 2017 - INTERXION HOLDING NV (NYSE: INXN), a leading European provider of carrier and cloud-neutral data centre services, today announced that The Sourcing Company and HPE have joined its solution partner programme to launch a new hybrid cloud offering for the Dutch market from its Amsterdam campus.

Recent research from IDC shows that 52% of enterprises in the Netherlands plan to adopt a hybrid cloud strategy. This shift is being driven by cost reduction and scalability. Concerns over data privacy, sovereignty and protection were reported as significant barriers to their cloud migration plans. Azure Stack customers enjoy the scalability and flexibility of the public cloud while at the same time being certain of where their data is processed and stored.

"European companies are moving IT into third-party data centres and hybrid cloud environments to gain flexibility, cost and security benefits,” said Michael van den Assem, Managing Director at Interxion Netherlands. "At the same time, they want the advantages of security and compliance that come from doing this within their own data centre environment."

“This collaboration brings together HPE’s trusted hardware platforms, The Sourcing Company’s experience in managing business-critical and privacy-sensitive applications, and delivers it from Interxion’s secure data centres."

"For The Sourcing Company, Interxion is the logical data centre partner," said Ronald Verweij, its CEO and Founder. "By being at Interxion Amsterdam, our customers know that they fall under Dutch laws and regulations when it comes to data privacy and security. In addition, Interxion provides access to ExpressRoute, which is a direct, private connection to the Microsoft public cloud. We are therefore assured of the best possible connectivity in a high-end Dutch data centre. We have made the conscious choice to make use of HPE hardware. It is the result of a fruitful collaboration over the past few years."

"The unique collaboration of The Sourcing Company and HPE in offering Microsoft Azure Stack from Interxion Amsterdam marks a new phase in hybrid cloud capabilities. HPE and its partners are proud to assist companies in transforming to a hybrid cloud infrastructure,” said Marco Lesmeister, Sales Director Channel, SMB & Service Providers of Hewlett Packard Enterprises.
