LONDON, March 12th 2009 - Interxion, a leading European operator of carrier-neutral data centres, has been selected by Xtraordinary Hosting, a managed hosting services provider, to provide secure, connected infrastructure to support growth for the company and its customers.
Xtraordinary Hosting offers a range of managed hosting services aimed at small to medium size enterprises. The company was founded in Scotland in 2001 and has grown steadily since then. It chose to locate its London operations in Interxion's London City site, where it can enjoy quick access to the City and direct connectivity with 28 carriers and ISPs, including the LINX London Internet Exchange.
"We work with a number of companies that are at the forefront of hi-tech e-commerce and it is crucial that we offer them the most resilient bandwidth and the lowest possible latency," said Andrew Ogilvie, Xtraordinary Hosting CEO.
"Interxion was the only organisation within the city with 5KW cabinets available as standard, spare capacity for future growth, and diversity of power, as well as a quality track record that we are pleased to share with our customers."
The Interxion London City data centre has been expanded a number of times in recent years in order to meet growing customer demand. The latest expansion - 400m² of equipped space, on schedule for completion in Q1 2009 - will have access to the data centre's 13 megawatt power supply, allowing it to deliver exceptionally high density power configurations of up to 17.5 kW per cabinet position.
"Over the past year we have seen more and more companies migrating to Interxion because we can better meet their growing requirements for power and cooling capacity, connectivity and operational resiliency," said Greg McCulloch, Interxion UK MD. "This, combined with our central location, makes Interxion an ideal choice for quality-focused enterprise-oriented organisations such as Xtraordinary Hosting."
