As part of its European expansion plans, Voxility has launched operations in Spain and deployed a point of presence (PoP) in Madrid with Interxion.

The expansion enables the international infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) provider to deliver IaaS and enhanced distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) mitigation services to local and regional networks. Voxility’s network is directly connected to more than 1,450 BGP peers.

“Our launch in Spain is part of our continuing growth strategy across the most interconnected internet hubs worldwide and we are now happy to facilitate access to new network capabilities and optimised performance for local Spanish networks. Madrid has emerged as an axis for the Iberian Peninsula, but also North Africa and South America,” said Marian Petrescu, general manager at Voxility.

“Our existing customers in Madrid benefit from secure Internet infrastructure that combines the flexibility and scalability of the cloud with greater levels of control and transparency in their IT infrastructure. Nonetheless, we are now able to provide local connections for DDoS scrubbing services, offering no delay for latency-sensitive sectors like gaming, video streaming and online trading.”

Voxility’s presence in Madrid provides a strategic hub for customers in Spain and is part of the company’s expansion strategy that is focused on bringing high performance and low-latency services closer to local markets.

The PoP in Interxion’s Madrid data centre provides customers with a secure, reliable and scalable centre for seamlessly growing their IT infrastructure, taking advantage of Voxility’s direct interconnection with the main residential telcos in the region such as Telefónica or Orange España.

Voxility’s global platform enables telecommunication companies, data centres, cloud services and hosting providers to build any type of secure cloud service. Customers benefit from rapid access to hardware, network, data centre, and security services from a single platform, while benefiting from the efficiency of a model driven by capital expenditure (CapEx).

 “We are excited to welcome Voxility to our Madrid Data Centre campus and support its growth in Spain. Voxility joins a diverse IP ecosystem of more than 90 carriers, internet service providers and content delivery networks. Our campus operates on a 100% renewable energy and is a gateway to both North Africa and Latin America,” added Robert Assink, managing director at Interxion Spain.

“Together, we are supporting the growth of flexible and fluid IT infrastructure locally in Madrid and across Spain contributing to make Madrid the digital hub of Southern Europe.”

The news comes after Digital Realty and Interxion entered into a definitive agreement to combine their businesses to create a leading global provider of data centre, colocation and interconnection services. The deal is valued at $8.4 billion.
