Organised by BroadGroup – a leading international consulting firm – the European awards ceremony, held in London on 13 June, celebrates the technical and commercial success of the data centre industry in Europe. The judging panel includes high-profile representatives from the consulting, end-user and vendor communities.
The European Award for Energy Efficiency in Data Centres recognises Interxion’s belief that energy efficient data centres are at the heart of the whole movement towards green IT and sustainable computing.

Commenting on the win, Kevin Dean, Chief Marketing Officer, Interxion, commented, “We are pleased to have been recognised by BroadGroup, and the distinguished members of the judging panel, as a leader in the European data centre industry.
