STOCKHOLM, 8th December 2009 - Interxion, a leading European operator of carrier-neutral data centres, and Netnod, Sweden’s Internet exchange, today announced a partnership agreement that will extend Netnod’s infrastructure into Interxion’s Stockholm data centre.
The agreement will enable Interxion customers to reduce latency and transit costs by peering directly across the Netnod switch, while Netnod’s members will be able to expand their applications infrastructure in the security of Interxion’s facility. Installation is scheduled for January 2010.
Netnod is a neutral, independent Internet exchange operating in five Swedish cities. Dedicated fibres will link the exchange to the Interxion data centre, significantly reducing the cost of connections for Interxion’s customers. “Netnod has a strategy of increasing its presence in carrier-neutral data centres, and in Stockholm Interxion is a natural extension for our exchange infrastructure,” said Kurt Erik Lindqvist, Netnod MD. “For us the partnership is an excellent way of reaching the market and at the same time benefitting from Interxion’s infrastructure and services.”
“For Interxion’s customers the partnership means that they can gain improvements in quality and cost-effectiveness by peering directly at Netnod,” said Peder Bank, Interxion Sweden MD. “The agreement will also create an even more attractive environment in Interxion Stockholm for international carriers.”
