London-based cloud operator Interoute has announced the opening of a new data centre in Madrid, Spain, which is built into the operator’s European network.

Interoute’s first location in Spain will allow the company to meet growing demand for connectivity, hosting and cloud services in the region.

The new facility is built into the 60,000 km of optical fibre that make up the Interoute network and is integrated with the company’s other data centres in Paris, Amsterdam, London, Berlin, Geneva, Ghent, Stockholm, Munich and Zurich.

The Madrid data centre covers 4,500 sq m and offers up to 32kW per rack and also offers access to multiple other operator networks.

“2014 will be a watershed year for ICT. The networked cloud is here to stay and in Europe we plan to remain the largest. By investing in a new data centre in Madrid, we are demonstrating our commitment to that goal,” said Gareth Williams, CEO at Interoute.
