This Marseille expansion is a perfect example of how we can quickly deploy custom, automated infrastructure to nearly any market in the world,” said Zachary Smith, CEO at Packet. “As we work with innovative clients like Hatch to push services ever closer to the edge, Interxion continues to be a valuable partner that aligns perfectly with our needs.
The inauguration of this second Interxion’s data centre in Marseille is a very good example of the Aix-Marseille’s region’s attractiveness, for companies desiring to invest in forward-looking sectors. This infrastructure will contribute to reinforce the outreach of Marseille’s growing digital hub, where the new uses of internet and, more extensively, of the digital, represent a challenge and a true opportunity for France. Our country has many assets that can be leveraged upon in the digital sector, has very fine startups and companies, and already attracts a number of foreign investments. I am pleased in the expansion of this industry in Marseille and the Bouches-du-Rhône department, for its is a true economic growth and long-term job creation driver.
It was critical for us to continue our expansion in Marseille in order to meet demand for our members’ requirements and boost capacity for new members looking to expand in the region,” explains Franck Simon, President at France-IX. “In addition, having Interxion MRS2 connected to Interxion MRS1 will allow us to add redundancy and increase resilience.
