Sify Technologies (NASDAQ NM: SIFY), a network provider with data center presence in 1500 cities in India, North America, the United Kingdom and Singapore, has established a network Point-of-Presence (PoP) at Interxion’s MRS1 colocation data center in Marseille, France.
Sify’s network expansion to Marseille would enhance the company’s ability to provide international services to its 9000+ enterprise customers on the Indian sub-continent. In addition, Sify Technologies can now enable interconnections for their wholesale partners seeking “state-of-the-art” solutions to reach India from Marseille, Europe’s gateway to Asia, the Middle East and Africa.
“With four submarine cable systems from India landing directly in Marseille, it was the logical location for us to expand our network presence,” said Mark Ryder, Managing Director, Europe at Sify Technologies. “The large and growing community of network and content providers available to partner with in Marseille accelerates our ability to cater to the burgeoning demands of our clients.”
With 13 submarine cable systems from India, Asia, the Middle East and Africa terminating in Marseille, the city has become a fast-growing interconnection hub. There are now 120 international and national network service providers, four Internet exchanges and “leading” cloud and content providers using Interxion Marseille to interconnect and exchange Internet traffic and content with one another.
“Sify Technologies will provide our customers with effective solutions to efficiently handle the large increase in content that is being exchanged between Europe and India,” said Mike Hollands, Director of Market Development and Strategy, Interxion. “Sify’s connectivity to 1500 cities and 45 data centres in India over a common data telecom infrastructure provides huge value to the community of interest present in our Marseille facility.”
Interxion serves a wide range of customers through its 45 colocation data centers in 11 European countries.
