Zurich, 7 October, 2010 – Interxion, a leading European provider of carrier-neutral colocation data centre services, today announced that the first phase of a major expansion and upgrade of its ZUR1 data centre in Zurich-Glattbrugg is now complete, meeting growing customer demand for high-power-density colocation infrastructure.
700 m2 of new data centre space is now ready for service in the first of three phased expansions which will increase the total equipped space in the data centre by almost 2700 m2. At the same time, an upgraded redundant grid connection of 20 MVA is being installed, which will enable the facility to support ultra-high-density power configurations.
The new space provides an energy-efficient, secure, standards-based environment for housing customer equipment, with 2N UPS and N+1 backup generators, providing up to 99.999% availability. In-house connectivity options include over 30 carriers and ISPs as well as SwissIX, the leading neutral Swiss Internet exchange. The facility and its operational systems have been independently assessed and accredited for the ISO 27001 and BS25999 standards for information security and business continuity, and also comply with all FINMA [Swiss Financial Markets Authority] directives.
“Well over half of the new space has already been allocated, demonstrating the continuing desirability of high-end, connectivity-rich infrastructure for leading organisations,” said Eddy Van den Broeck, Interxion Switzerland Managing Director. “We will continue to enhance our facilities and build on our standards to support customer communities in all sectors as they expand, develop and launch the latest mission-critical applications.”
