European data centre provider, Interxion, has today announced the construction of a second data centre in Stockholm, Sweden.
The company has said it will
also be expanding its existing data centres in Frankfurt and
Copenhagen as part of its expansion strategy to meet customer
demand across its pan-European footprint.
The first 500 square metre phase of the Stockholm data centre
(STO 2) is expected to be operational in the second quarter of
"We have expanded our Stockholm data centre twice in the past
18 months and continue to see strong demand in Stockholm," said
David Ruberg, CEO at Interxion.
"STO 2 will provide critical equipped space to meet our
customers' expansion requirements."
The 600 square metre Frankfurt data centre (FRA 6.3) expansion
is scheduled to be operational in the first quarter of 2013,
whilst the 300 square metre expansion in the Copenhagen data
centre (CPH 1) is also due for completion in the second quarter
Ruberg said that demands for the Frankfurt data centre remain
strong: "Fill rates for Frankfurt have met our expectations and
FRA 6.3 will provide additional equipped space to meet the
demands we see in the marketplace."
The increased interest in Interxion’s data centres
is evident in its recent connectivity agreement with AWS Direct
Connect in December last year.
