Digital Realty company Interxion, a European provider of carrier- and cloud-neutral colocation data center solutions, has begun construction on its third data center in Denmark. The new colocation data center will be developed in three phases and is expected to support the delivery of nearly 7,000 square meters of total equipped space and over 14 megawatts of customer capacity when fully built out.
The new CPH3 data center will be located adjacent to the existing CPH1 and CPH2 facilities on the Interxion Copenhagen campus at the industrial park in Ballerup. The first phase is expected to provide approximately 2,300 square meters of equipped space and is scheduled for delivery in the first half of 2022.
Colocation customers at this new facility can utilize Digital Realty’s global PlatformDIGITAL spanning 24 countries across six continents.
“Data is migrating away from on-premise data centers to the cloud,” said Peder Bank, Nordics Managing Director, Interxion. “This trend, along with the exponential growth in the volume of data created, has prompted enterprises to harness the power of data gravity and deploy their critical infrastructure at key centers of data exchange. Interxion’s Copenhagen data center campus forms a key hub at the heart of digital Denmark, which offers a uniquely attractive business climate. Given the rich community of network hubs directly accessible on PlatformDIGITAL from Copenhagen, customers can reach 80% of Europe’s GDP in less than 25 milliseconds.”

Interxion offers direct access to Azure ExpressRoute to facilitate the extension of on-premise networks into the Microsoft cloud using the only dark fiber connectivity available in Denmark as well as dedicated network access to the AWS Cloud via AWS Direct Connect.
In addition, Interxion provides access to 60 networks and Internet service providers (ISPs), four Internet exchanges, the HAVFRUE/ AEC-2 transatlantic subsea cable and the major cloud providers.
