Interxion opens data centre in French capital region
Interxion is expanding its global platform in the east of Paris. The Digital Realty company has opened a facility in Ferrières-en-Brie, which is expected to provide up to 12MW when fully built-out.
Located less than 30km from Paris, the data centre is Interxion's 12th facility in the French capital region.
Ferrières-en-Brie is the third hub in the Paris region designed to meet the growing needs of cloud service providers seeking to improve the resilience of their services, said the company. It complements two existing hubs in the north and south of Paris.
In addition, the new data centre will allow enterprise customers to deploy disaster recovery scenarios from Paris and the east of France using available low latency networks deployed along the country's A4 motorway.
“Our new PAR12 location meets the strong demand from content and cloud providers who are interested in a third hub in the Paris region,” said Fabrice Coquio, managing director for Interxion France.
“It will also allow companies in the east of France to improve the resilience of their infrastructure by being located close to Paris, while being connected to a high-performance low latency network,” said Coquio.
Interxion recently leased more space at its Düsseldorf, Germany campus, and it is building a new facility in Brussels, Belgium.
