Interxion’s Frankfurt campus provides ChinaCache connectivity to expand European footprint
LONDON – October 30 2012: INTERXION HOLDING NV (NYSE:INXN, news), a leading European provider of carrier-neutral colocation data centre services, today announced that ChinaCache International Holdings Ltd. (ChinaCache) (:CCIH, news), the leading total solutions provider of Internet content and application delivery services in China, has selected the Content Hub in Interxion’s Frankfurt data centre to colocate its content delivery network (CDN). As the premiere CDN provider in China, ChinaCache’s presence in Interxion’s data centre extends the company’s international presence and provides other Interxion customers with direct access to Chinese content.
The rapid growth of the digital media industry is driving an uptick in customer expectations for high quality of experience. In response to these growing demands, content providers like ChinaCache are increasingly under pressure to deliver the best quality content to end users with high availalability and optimal performance. In order to stay competitive and accomodate the rising number of European companies seeking to access data and applications from China, ChinaCache knew it needed to colocate in Interxion’s carrier-neutral data centre at its Frankfurt campus. ChinaCache can now benefit from Interxion’s data centre, which will manage ChinaCache’s content aggregation and distribution and is able to provide improved availability, scalability and flexibility of its IT infrastructure.
Interxion’s Frankfurt data centre gives access to more than 150 carriers and ISPs and houses the core infrastructure of the DE-CIX, the world’s largest Internet exchange in terms of peak traffic. With this direct connectivity and interconnection with a large and growing digital media community, ChinaCache can expand its coverage to more European countries as well as improve its overall availability and performance.
“As a China-focused CDN provider with a global presence, we recognized how important an enhanced European footprint was for our business,” said Wang Song, CEO, ChinaCache. “Given the size of its economy and the extent of its international data traffic, Germany was a logical first step for our European growth plans, and we were very impressed with Interxion’s Frankfurt data centre. The centre provides us with unbeatable connectivity and the ability to partner with other content providers, and is therefore the perfect choice for us to house our services. We are pleased to work with Interxion as we continue to expand, and we look forward to continued collaboration.”
“ChinaCache is the premiere Asian CDN provider, and we are thrilled to welcome the company to our Content Hub,” said Jonathan Wood, head of digital media, Interxion. “It is a fantastic addition for us, as its presence gives us access into a lucrative Chinese market and enables the European digital media community to access the Asian market. We are pleased with ChinaCache’s first deployment in our Frankfurt data centre, and look forward to working with the company on its continued growth and evolution in additional regions.”
