Interxion to launch two new Marseille data centres

Interxion launches major new expansion project in Marseille, France, with two new data centres being built.
Interxion has announced a massive investment and expansion of its data centres in Marseille, France. The strategy, outlined by Interxion at a major partner event in Marseille last week, includes the construction of two brand-new data centres boosting Interxion’s position as one of the key hubs for Southern Europe and Africa.
When Interxion acquired the first Marseille data centre MRS1 in 2014 it housed approximately 50 networks. Since then Interxion has doubled the size of this community to 100. Now it is looking to build out two of its most ambitious projects
“This rapid growth in the number of telecommunications networks within our data centre in Marseille demonstrates the city’s increasing importance in global
“It is extremely rare for a single facility to bring together so many networks in so little time,” said Mike Hollands, director of marketing and business development at Interxion. “We are committed to developing this community of network providers so we can offer our customers the very best interconnectivity across Europe. This 100th provider consolidates MRS1’s position as the leading interconnection hub for Southern Europe, Africa, and the Middle East.”
Against this background, and following the Capacity Europe event in Paris, Interxion gathered almost a hundred international connectivity operator partners together in Marseille on the 10th of November to discuss the major developments in submarine cables which will put France at the heart of global interconnectivity.
A highlight of the day was a tour of the site of Interxion’s planned MRS2 and MRS3 data centre builds. MRS2 is an old warehouse near the landing site of a new
However, it is adjacent to the planned MRS2 and is in the perfect place to pull the much-needed 80 Megawatts of power it will eventually use – as much as a town of 70,000 people.
