Zayo engages with Interxion to facilitate its first phase of expansion in Ireland
DUBLIN – 18th March 2015 – INTERXION HOLDING NV (NYSE: INXN), a European provider of cloud and carrier-neutral colocation data centre services, today announced it has been engaged by International Bandwidth Infrastructure provider Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:ZAYO). Through the partnership, Interxion Dublin will become the first site in Zayo’s newly expanded, long-haul European network.
The agreement with Interxion will support Zayo’s recently announced expansion across Europe which will take place throughout the first half of 2015.
This expansion will provide Interxion’s customers in Dublin with high speed links into major UK cities as well as into Frankfurt, Amsterdam, Paris and cities in 45 states in the U.S. via Zayo’s existing global routes. Customers will have access to wavelength services of up to 100G and the opportunity to utilise Zayo’s full portfolio of services.
Zayo’s online pricing and ordering platform, Tranzact, will allow Interxion customers to commission direct links between Interxion Dublin and leading public cloud services. The innovative platform enables quotes to be generated, orders to be placed, and provides an overview of commissioned services. This capability simplifies the process of interconnecting cloud services to build hybrid business platforms.
Commenting on the announcement, Tanya Duncan, MD of Interxion Ireland said “Providing access to the best connectivity possible is vital for our customer communities and we look forward to having 100G connectivity to Zayo’s international network in our Dublin site.”
”This agreement will enable us to provide services to a wider customer base and continue to support the mission critical services our customers demand,” Alastair Kane, European vice president for Zayo, added. “Through our recent network expansion we are able to support Interxion’s customers in gaining the maximum benefit from public cloud services and connections to hundreds of locations globally. Based on Interxion’s real time responsiveness, flexibility, and ability to understand our long term plans, we look forward to working together to provide customers with comprehensive services to support business needs.”
