Interxion Holding NV has announced that it has acquired a data centre business from Vancis Holding BV, a leading independent Dutch provider of colocation, cloud, and managed services based in Amsterdam’s Science Park.
The acquired data centre business is located in the connectivity heart of Amsterdam. As the location where the Amsterdam Internet Exchange was first established, it houses a rich and diverse community of connectivity providers. This Science Park asset, which has access to more than 100 carriers and ISPs, doubles Interxion’s existing carrier density in Amsterdam and will enable customers across the metro area to interconnect at low latency and low cost. Customers in both Interxion’s Schiphol and Science Park campuses can now easily access the robust connectivity options across the two campuses, including all the top international carriers, over 40 ISPs, all major internet exchanges, as well as the world’s leading cloud platforms.
“Global businesses today require access to dense connectivity and multiple cloud platforms in order to meet the dynamic requirements of their customers and to drive value,” said David Ruberg, Interxion chief executive officer. “Interxion Science Park extends our campus into another dimension of Amsterdam’s connectivity community and enhances the value proposition of our Schiphol campus by doubling our carrier and ISP density in one of Europe’s primary colocation markets.”
The acquired data centre, which is now designated as “Interxion Science Park,” is a key connectivity hub for customers that serve The Netherlands and Western Europe. Approximately 75% of its 1,800 sq meters of equipped space is utilised, and it has 2.5 MW of customer available power. In addition, Interxion has identified options to expand the capacity at the current Science Park facilities.
Vancis C&MS BV will continue to own and operate its existing cloud and managed services business and has entered into a strategic partnership with Interxion to continue servicing its customers.
