Carrier and cloud-neutral colocation data center services provider Interxion Holding will invest €13 million to set up its ninth center in its Frankfurt campus.
FRA 9 will be operational in the first quarter of 2014.
The new data center will be built in a single phase and will provide approximately 800 square meters of Equipped Space and 1MW of customer-available power.
“We are experiencing growth across multiple segments, including cloud providers, financial services, and digital media,” said David Ruberg, CEO of Interxion. “FRA 9 will enable us to bring capacity on-line ahead of our previously announced FRA 8 expansion, which will ensure that we are able to meet our customers’ requirements.”
The site, which is secured by a long-term lease, will access existing campus power and will leverage the high connectivity available at Interxion’s Frankfurt campus.
Interxion is also accelerating the availability of the second phase of its previously announced FRA 8 new build. The revised schedule has the second 900 square meter phase scheduled to be operational in the second half of 2014 instead of 2015. The first phase is on schedule to be available in the first half of 2014.
