The European colocation provider Interxion: A digital Realty Company announced recently that it is expanding its digital footprint in Denmark by building its third data center in Ballerup near Copenhagen.
Interxion is commencing the construction of the CPH3 site, which will have up to a total of 7,000m2 data center space, with a power capacity availability of up to 14,4 megawatts. The first phase of the data center is expected to be up and running by 2022.
Interxion is one of the leading colocation providers in Denmark, hosting data on behalf of prominent and large-scale enterprises in Denmark, as well as many public organizations.
The company, with its headquarters in the Netherlands, was acquired by the US-based data center provider Digital Realty in 2019.
Exponential data growth
Interxion is expanding its digital footprint due to the increasing demand for data, which has reached all time levels, spurred on by ever-increasing hybrid IT deployments.
“Data volumes increase like we have never seen before. And in recent years, data is increasingly moving from internal on-premise data centers towards clouds and colocation data centers like the ones we operate. This, together with the exponential increase in the amount of data generated, has created an increased demand for enterprises to harness the power of data gravity and deploy their critical infrastructure at key centers for data exchange. Interxion’s Copenhagen campus forms a key hub at the heart of digital Denmark, which offers a uniquely attractive business climate for companies to conduct business”, says Peder Bank, Managing Director at Interxion Nordics.
The added capacity to Interxion’s portfolio is an indicator that the future for businesses and organisations will be data-driven.
“With the proliferation of the digital economy, companies are today dealing with a higher volume of increasingly diverse data than ever before. Interxion’s expansion in Copenhagen reflects the growing demands for data, which signals that there will be a need for all types of data centers, including hyperscale, colo and edge, in order to keep up with a data hungry world”, says Henrik Hansen, CEO of the Danish Data Center Industry.
Denmark has seen a wave of data center investments in recent years, and holds the top place in the recently released Data Center Ranking 2020 by Investment Monitor, dubbing the country as the best place in the world to build a data center.
“In Denmark we have the right conditions to ensure that the facilities are built and run in a sustainable and highly efficient manner”, adds Henrik Hansen.
