PLANS TO DEVELOP 4 DATA CENTERS
Carrier- and cloud-neutral colocation data center provider Interxion, has just acquired a 22,000 square meter parcel of land located approximately one kilometer from its existing campus in Vienna, Austria.
This acquisition expands the company’s asset footprint in the region and will support the development of up to 40MW of additional IT capacity, which is to be fully connected to the existing campus. The expansion design features four data center buildings, to be known as Digital Park – Paukerwerkstrasse, which will be powered by renewable energy sources.
“The expansion of our Vienna campus will enable Interxion to offer local and global service providers additional data center capacity to seamlessly expand their services in the region via PlatformDIGITAL®,” said Martin Madlo, Managing Director, Austria, Interxion: A Digital Realty Company.
“At the same time, we will continue to support Austrian enterprises as they roll out their hybrid IT infrastructure by combining leading cloud services, global connectivity and Interxion’s colocation solutions. We have been using renewable energy sources to power our data centers in Austria for over 10 years, and we will continue to evaluate every available option to further optimize the energy efficiency of our new project.”
Also in Europe, Interxion established its presence in Croatia last month; through the acquisition of Altus IT, a carrier-neutral data center provider located in Zagreb. As announced, Altus IT’s team remains with the business, including its current CEO Goran Đoreski, who will assume the position of Managing Director, Croatia.
Interxion further disclosed its acquisition of a 3.6-acre land parcel in Madrid, Spain. This 14,550 square meter plot is located in Madrid’s technology zone known as Silicon Alley Madrid, a part of the San Blas-Canillejas district. The company plans to build its fourth Madrid data center on this acquired parcel, a facility that can support up to 34 MW of critical IT capacity.
