Interxion, a provider of carrier and cloud-neutral colocation data center services through 40 data centers in 11 European countries, has announced an initial investment of approximately €28 million to construct the first two phases of its third data center in Dublin (DUB3).
Developed in response to continued customer demand, this new data center will be located in Grange Castle Business Park. The first two phases of Interxion DUB3 are scheduled to open in the fourth quarter of 2016.
When fully constructed, Interxion DUB3 will provide a total of approximately 2,300 square meters 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 center campus.
“As Europe’s fastest growing economy, we have seen a significant increase in demand for our services in recent years in Ireland,” said Karl Mulhall, Managing Director of Interxion 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 data center 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.”
Across Europe, Interxion are growing their services with new data centers in Amsterdam and Copenhagen as well as Dublin. When fully built, the three new data centers will have a maximum capacity of approximately 11,900 square meters. Interxion is also expanding its operations in Frankfurt. The additional capacity from the four city expansions, including Dublin, is approximately 6,800 square meters and is scheduled to become operational in the second half of 2016.
