The new STO6 data centre, which, when fully extended, will achieve an effective customer surface area of 3,300 sqm and, with the first phase already completed in 2020, offer the industry standards' highest security class, scalable infrastructure for business-critical IT systems and a wide range of connectivity and cloud solutions.
For Interxion, STO6 is the first extension of a data centre in Sweden beyond its existing site, with direct connection to Interxion's existing data centre campus.
The data centre is compatible with Category 3 defined by the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency and is also an excellent choice for your dual-site solution. This is because the data centre has a completely stand-alone infrastructure while offering industry-leading connectivity and access to operators, as well as Internet access points throughout Europe.
By locating themselves here, companies will benefit from access to all leading cloud services as well as the best conditions for developing their hybrid cloud strategy. With a focus on cloud and operator neutrality, Interxion offers all the right conditions for companies to develop sustainable digital IT.
STO6 is also driving our sustainability work forward and our current cooperation with Stockholm Exergi is growing to a completely new level. Through its current investment in heat pumps, Interxion will be able to supply excess heat, in the form of hot water, directly to the district heating network. Energy and heat which would otherwise be wasted is recycled to heat homes in Stockholm.
Like all Interxion's data centres, only 100% renewable energy is used.
