Dublin – 17 December, 2018 – INTERXION HOLDING NV (NYSE:INXN, news), a leading European provider of carrier and cloud-neutral colocation data centre services, today announced that it has been selected by Welltel, a rapidly growing Irish-owned communications company, to host its core business services that comprises managed connectivity along with unified communication solutions.
Welltel provides telecoms and connectivity solutions to over 3,000 customers both in Ireland and internationally. The company has featured for five consecutive years in the Deloitte Fast 50 awards and is continuing to expand its footprint.
As a growing operator, Welltel decided to open a 3rd POP in Ireland by partnering with a colocation provider who could offer them the flexibility they need to scale quickly. In selecting a colocation partner, Welltel carried out a thorough selection process before choosing Interxion. Interxion outperformed significant competition in the sector to win Welltel’s business. Interxion’s skills and available resources to design a solution with Welltel and its ability to deliver on time as they expand, were key factors in the decision.
Speaking about the partnership, Ross Murray, CEO of Welltel said: “Interxion really understood our business, how we want to grow, and how its services can assist us. Interxion’s strong reputation, round-the-clock support services and ability to assist us in terms of deployment timelines made them an ideal choice as a data centre partner. We are excited for the opportunity to work with Tanya and the team.”
Tanya Duncan, Managing Director of Interxion Ireland commented: "It is an exciting time for Interxion following the expansion of our third data centre in Dublin as we are continuing to see strong customer demands from existing and new clients. We’re delighted to be working with Welltel and are looking forward to working with them during this exciting time of development as they continue to grow.
Dublin is home to one of Europe’s biggest data centre hubs and a recent Host in Ireland report showed that in the three months from April to June this year over €1 billion of new data centre investments were announced. This level of investment demonstrates clearly the demand for hosting in Ireland and today’s announcement further highlights this demand."
