Interxion, a Digital Realty company, has just commenced the construction of its third data center in Denmark, joining other facilities in the company’s Copenhagen campus.

Codenamed CPH3, the new data center will sit adjacent to the existing CPH1 and CPH2 facilities on the Interxion Copenhagen campus, located at the industrial park in Ballerup. The company plans to develop the new facility in three phases, and upon full build, CPH3 is expected to support the delivery of nearly 7,000 square meters of total equipped space and over 14MW of customer load capacity.

“Data is migrating away from on-premise data centers to the cloud. This trend, along with the exponential growth in the volume of data created, has prompted enterprises to harness the power of data gravity and deploy their critical infrastructure at key centers of data exchange,” said Peder Bank, Nordics Managing Director, Interxion.

“Interxion’s Copenhagen campus forms a key hub at the heart of digital Denmark, which offers a uniquely attractive business climate.  Given the rich community of network hubs directly accessible on PlatformDIGITAL from Copenhagen, customers can reach 80% of Europe’s GDP in less than 25 milliseconds.”

Leveraging Digital Realty’s PlatformDIGITAL®, Interxion offers direct access to Azure ExpressRoute in Denmark, as well as dedicated network access to the AWS Cloud via AWS Direct Connect. With the development of CPH3, the company therefore expands the footprint of Digital Realty’s cloud platform which spans 24 countries, and bolsters Interxion’s position in the Nordic region.

This announcement follows another Interxion expansion plan to develop 4 data center buildings, to be known as Digital Park – Paukerwerkstrasse in Vienna, Austria. For this project, the company acquired a 22,000 square meter parcel of land in October, having plans to power the 40MW site with renewable energy sources.

Also on renewable energy, Interxion France disclosed about a week ago, that it is on target to achieve a carbon neutral footprint for its existing French data centers by the end of 2020.
