Interxion Announces Expansion In Ireland With Third Data Centre In Dublin
The data centre is due to open in late 2016 along with expansions in Frankfurt, Amsterdam, and Copenhagen.
INTERXION HOLDING NV has announced an initial investment of approximately €28 million to construct the first two phases of its third data centre in Dublin (DUB3). Developed in response to continued customer demand, this new data centre will be located in Grange Castle Business Park.
When fully constructed, DUB3 will provide a total of approximately 2,300 sqm of equipped space in four phases and total customer-available power of approximately 5MW. DUB3 will provide access to 40+ carriers and ISPs, as well as INEX, the Irish Internet Exchange, whose core node is based at Interxion’s existing Dublin data centre campus.
Speaking about the expansion, Karl Mulhall managing director of Interxion Ireland said: “I am delighted today to announce Interxion’s third data centre in Ireland. As Europe’s fastest growing economy, we have seen a significant increase in demand for our services in recent years in Ireland. We are experiencing growth from new clients as well as current clients as more and more look to support their traditional hosting services with cloud services. These companies are looking for connectivity and security from their providers and our reputation and expertise in this area provides us with a unique opportunity for growth. This announcement demonstrates our continued investment in the Irish market.”
The first two phases of Interxion DUB3 are scheduled to open in the fourth quarter of 2016. During development DUB3 will deliver 100+ construction jobs.
Across Europe, Interxion are growing their services with new data centres in Amsterdam and Copenhagen as well as Dublin. When fully built, the three new data centres, will have a maximum capacity of approximately 11,900 sqm. Interxion is also expanding its operations in Frankfurt. The additional capacity from the four city expansions, including Dublin, is approximately 6,800 sqm and is scheduled to become operational in the second half of 2016.
