Interxion Acquires Land in Madrid for Future Expansion
Interxion, a Digital Realty (NYSE:DLR) company and a leading European provider of carrier- and cloud-neutral colocation data centre services, has acquired a 3.6-acre land parcel in a strategic expansion of its Madrid campus, Spain’s most highly interconnected data centre campus. The parcel is less than one kilometre from Interxion’s existing data centres and can support a facility with up to 34 megawatts of critical IT capacity encompassing more than 35,000 square metres.
Interxion’s Madrid facilities have become the primary hub for content exchange on the Iberian Peninsula – and in southern Europe more broadly. Customers who deploy their critical infrastructure with Interxion in Madrid gain direct access to leading global cloud providers on campus as well as access to communities of connectivity providers, platforms and enterprises on six continents through PlatformDIGITAL™, Digital Realty’s global data centre platform.
Interxion purchased the 14,550-square metre plot to build its fourth data centre in Madrid’s technology zone known as Silicon Alley Madrid, a part of the San Blas-Canillejas district. Construction of a 34-megawatt data centre would be expected to generate more than 500 jobs and drive significant economic impact, boosting GDP between €9 and €12 for every euro invested. The strategic expansion project underscores Interxion’s confidence in the region’s future as southern Europe’s digital hub and its commitment to the development of the digital economy in Spain.
“The recent restrictions on people’s movements have shined a new light on the role of data centres and the digital economy,” said Robert Assink, Managing Director of Interxion Spain. “There is now heightened awareness of the importance of connectivity and access to the applications that enable us to work, study, consume content and shop from anywhere. Without data centres, it would not be possible to connect users and businesses.”
Interxion has been operating in Madrid for two decades, driving technological development in the region and managing more than half of Spain’s internet traffic.
