Interxion Supports Axians' Move Into The Cloud
For more than 8 years, Axians' ICT Austria has housed its infrastructure within Interxion’s data centre. During this time it has become one of the leading providers of enterprise IT in Austria and is now looking to evolve even further with the introduction of cloud-based services.
Since 2003, Axians has operated multiple customer infrastructures in Interxion’s Vienna site. In 2008 it started to offer hybrid cloud solutions.
Due to the nature of the new product line, Axians required a data centre provider that could not only deliver best-in-class availability, but also offer multiple connectivity options and deliver the optimum environment for cost-effective development, launch and management of successful cloud-based services.
In the 8 years we’ve been working with Interxion, we haven’t had a single power outage or violation of the stipulated SLA’s. We are looking forward to working with Interxion to help deliver our new cloud offerings
Due to the history Axians has with Interxion, it didn’t need to look too far for a data centre partner with whom to expand its cloud offering.
nterxion turned out to be the ideal colocation partner – providing the best conditions for the expansion of its cloud-based services. Interxion worked with Axians to optimise its data centre infrastructure so it was able to meet the exacting requirements of Axians’s new cloud-based solutions. Vladimir Mlynar, Director Service Management at Axians Austria, commented “We have been working with Interxion for over 8 years and have had a very good relationship with them, so when we decided to move into cloud solutions, we knew Interxion’s experience in this space would be truly beneficial.”
Interxion’s cloud community is one of the most mature in Europe. The site network gives Axians and its customers access to the most important business hubs and their markets. Access to around 90 carriers and ISPs, as well as the Vienna Internet exchange (VIX), guarantees first class connectivity from the Vienna site to business customers and end users. Additionally, Interxion guarantees 99,999% availability, a point which was of key importance to Axians continuing to grow its business with Interxion. Vladimir Mlynar, concluded, “In the 8 years we’ve been working with Interxion, we haven’t had a single power outage or violation of the stipulated SLA’s.
The organisation always achieves the highest industry certifications such as ISO27001 and BS 25999, and this level of care gives us true piece of mind. We are looking forward to working with Interxion to help deliver our new cloud offerings.”
