Interxion, a provider of carrier and cloud-neutral colocation data center services serving a wide range of customers through 45 data centers in 11 European countries, has announced the expansion of its colocation services to Rome, Italy.
Interxion’s colocation services in Rome will be delivered within an existing data center owned by Wind Tre, a large mobile operator and fixed-line services provider in Italy. Rome’s large population and central geographical position within Italy would make the city an important connectivity hub for Interxion with strong growth potential.
Rome’s Internet exchange, NaMeX, is amongst the first to use Interxion’s colocation data center services in Rome. NaMeX’s deployment with Interxion provides an additional, diverse location from which NaMeX’s members can connect to the Internet exchange’s platform. Interxion customers in Rome will have access to a community of carriers and ISPs “ensuring efficient connectivity to address Rome, as well as the wider Italian market.”
“There’s an increasing demand from content providers for carrier-neutral data centres near end-users,” said Giuliano di Vitantonio, Chief Marketing and Strategy Officer, Interxion. “By offering our services in Rome, in a carrier-rich location, our customers can improve their customer experience and optimize performance.”
