Interxion recently completed a major project to expand its data center in Germany.
The company is a carrier-neutral, colocation provider, giving it a somewhat unique position in the market. This position has created increased demand for its services, and the company upgraded the data center to handle a larger capacity of customers renting space on equipment racks.
The expansion was completed in the company's data center in Dusseldorf, Germany. The facility is one of the only data centers in the region that supports two of the most prominent local internet exchanges, making its colocation services especially important.
Peter Knapp, managing director of Interxion Germany, elaborated on the technologies that went into the data center's design.
"Our Dusseldorf data center combines state-of-the-art infrastructure with outstanding connectivity and provides the ideal environment for existing and prospective customers demanding robust infrastructure and optimum connectivity," said Knapp.
Matching a data center with the right location can be a key part of a facility's success. According to a recent AreaDevelopment report, energy reliability and cost are typically the most prominent factors in any data center location strategy. However, tax incentives and factors can also influence where a data center is built.
