European data center operator Interxion, a Digital Realty company, has opened its latest colocation data center in the Paris region in France. The new facility, Interxion PAR12, is expected to provide up to 12 megawatts of IT load capacity. At this new location, eight data halls will offer more than 690 square meters of new colocation space.
PAR12, Interxion’s 12th data center in the French capital area, is less than 30 kilometers east of Paris and is meant to provide a vibrant community for clients to construct network hubs on PlatformDIGITAL, Digital Realty’s global data center platform for expanding digital business.
The new facility, which is located in Ferrières-en-Brie, is the company’s third in the Paris region and is designed to satisfy the rising demands of cloud service providers (CSPs) looking to increase the reliability of their services. It joins the two current data center clusters in Paris’ north and south. Furthermore, leveraging the existing low latency networks installed along the A4 road, business clients would be able to implement disaster recovery scenarios from Paris and the east of France.
Content and Cloud Providers
Interxion’s PAR12 colocation data center will enable clients to install their IT infrastructure in one of Europe’s top cloud and interconnection hubs, which has been built over the last twenty years, as part of Digital Realty’s strategic development in France of PlatformDIGITAL. This digital business hub connects a dynamic data community of network, cloud, and content providers, as well as enterprise clients.
“This new strategic location meets the strong demand from content and cloud providers, who are interested in a third hub in the Paris region,” said Fabrice Coquio, Managing Director, Interxion France. “It will also allow companies in the east of France to improve the resilience of their infrastructure by being located close to Paris, while being connected to a high-performance low latency network. It marks a new chapter in Interxion’s development in France to continue to meet customers’ demand.”
