Interxion partners with Amito to enable greater access to their central London data centre campus community

New partnership provides SMB access to Interxion’s critical infrastructure.

London, UK, April. 22, 2020 – Interxion, a leading European provider of carrier and cloud neutral colocation data centre services and a Digital Realty (NYSE: DLR) company, today announced a new reseller partnership with UK-based Amito to provide cost efficient, flexible colocation services that enable organisations to realise the benefits the central London campus community has to offer via tailored physical space.

The new partnership with Amito – a cloud, colocation and connectivity services provider specialising in quarter and half rack solutions - enables businesses including carriers, service providers, wholesale telecoms companies and network operators, to have a cost effective point of presence in a key central London ecosystem with unrivalled access to major liquidity venues and over 90 connectivity providers on site.

Strategically positioned between the Square Mile and in the heart of Tech City, Interxion’s thriving London campus is the location of choice for more than 250 capital markets participants, including investment firms,15 Financial Exchanges, high-frequency trading firms, hedge funds, brokers and banks.

It is also home to other communities of interest including digital media, artificial intelligence and cloud sectors, making it an ideal location for any business that wants to securely house their infrastructure.

Small and large organisations can add significant value to colocation ecosystems, and by partnering with Amito, Interxion is able to offer a joint solution enabling many more of these organisations to use the London data centre campus as their gateway to the hyper-connected global market, to interconnect with industry peers, partners and suppliers, and to drive new levels of growth for their businesses and the UK economy.

Andrew Fray, UK Managing Director at Interxion, added: “Interxion’s London data centre campus is the most highly connected site in Central London, with a thriving hub of growing connected enterprise communities. Now, thanks to our partnership with Amito, organisations can start with as little as a quarter rack and enjoy the full benefits of colocation. Increasingly customers are moving their ICT out of their offices and either into the cloud, or highly connected available locations like ours”

With dark fibre rings connecting the London campus and Amito’s flagship Reading data centre, customers can also expect flexibility, low latency, and virtually infinite capacity, and with the ability to provide support for multiple, full, half and even quarter racks they’ll only pay for what they’ll use.

Tim Anker, Colocation Director, Amito said: “Amito has been providing high quality quarter racks in all the key London colocation ecosystems since 2004 and we’re delighted to add Interxion’s established Brick Lane campus to our range of options, where we are already seeing significant traction. 

“Whilst our typical users do not have large space needs, they do make a significant contribution to ecosystems such as Interxion’s London campus as evidenced by the large number of cross-connects that our clients run, connecting with carriers, exchanges and other partners. Interxion will also be added to Amito’s dark fibre ring connecting all our service locations as well as Amito’s Reading data centre; allowing our clients access to our cost effective interconnection services between all these sites.

“We are excited about our new partnership with the Interxion London team and look forward to expanding our presence there.”
