Interxion: A Digital Realty Company Takes Top Spot in EMEA on Cloudscene’s Data Centre Ecosystem Leaderboard as Enterprises Accelerate Digital Transformation Strategies


Interxion: A Digital Realty Company Takes Top Spot in EMEA on Cloudscene’s Data Centre Ecosystem Leaderboard as Enterprises Accelerate Digital Transformation Strategies

 

 

 

LONDON, 17 July 2020 – Interxion: A Digital Realty Company and a leading European provider of carrier- and cloud-neutral colocation data centre solutions, announced today it is the leading connected data centre provider in EMEA, according to Cloudscene’s H1, 2020 Data Centre Ecosystem Leaderboard, which ranks data centre operators based on the density of their facilities, service providers, network fabrics and cloud on-ramps across North America, EMEA, Asia and Oceania. 

The leadership position in EMEA reflects the strategic value of Digital Realty’s recent combination with Interxion, coupling density of carrier and cloud network nodes with global reach, enabling the combined organization to meet growing customer demand in the EMEA region and extending customer access to new opportunities globally.  Digital Realty’s significant momentum in the Americas reflects the recent acquisition of a majority interest in the Westin Building Exchange, the sixth most densely interconnected facility in North America and the primary interconnection hub for the Pacific Northwest, linking Canada, Alaska and Asia along the Pacific Rim. 

Enterprises across industries and regions are rapidly adopting digital transformation strategies, with businesses expecting to spend $5.9 trillion[1] on digital transformation between 2019 and 2022.  Delivering on those strategies across geographies, customers and endpoints is creating a growing connectivity challenge, however.  By 2022, IT leaders expect to serve up to 20[2] more locations than they do today, and IDC predicts over 41.6 billion[3] connected devices will be in use by 2025. 

Interxion has continued to expand across EMEA to help enterprises simplify these connectivity challenges and advance their digital transformation strategies, with recent strategic land acquisitions in Frankfurt and Paris, along with Cloud House, the expansion of its highly connected Digital Docklands campus in London.  The consistent growth of the EMEA footprint represents a significant expansion of PlatformDIGITALTM, enabling businesses to meet their global connectivity needs with a single data centre provider. 

“We are empowering customers to deploy high-performance, low-latency hybrid IT architectures by providing access to more than 1,600 unique connectivity service providers and hosting numerous cloud on-ramps on our data centre campuses,” said Vincent in ‘t Veld, VP Platforms, Interxion: A Digital Realty Company.  “Interxion’s top billing in EMEA is an endorsement of our consistent investment in the growth of connected communities that create value for our customers.”
