VIENNA, 13 October 2020 - Interxion: A Digital Realty Company and a leading European provider of carrier- and cloud-neutral colocation data centre solutions, has acquired the freehold to a parcel of land within approximately one kilometre of its existing campus in Vienna. The expansion parcel totals 22.000m² that will support the development of up to 40 megawatts of additional IT capacity and will be fully connected to the existing campus, the most highly connected in the central and eastern European region with 120 carriers, four Internet Exchanges and direct access to seven global cloud platforms.
Digital Realty's ongoing expansion demonstrates its continued investment in PlatformDIGITAL®, the company's global data centre platform supporting customers around the world as they navigate digital transformation strategies and the complexities of rapidly growing demand, the need for global coverage and additional capacity.
'The expansion of our Vienna campus will enable Interxion to offer local and global service providers additional data centre capacity to seamlessly expand their services in the region via PlatformDIGITAL®,' said Martin Madlo, Managing Director, Austria, Interxion: A Digital Realty Company. 'At the same time, we will continue to support Austrian enterprises as they roll out their hybrid IT infrastructure by combining leading cloud services, global connectivity and Interxion's colocation solutions.'
The design of the four buildings, to be known as Digital Park - Paukerwerkstrasse, will focus on sustainable operations, energy efficiency and the highest level of availability. 'We have been using renewable energy sources to power our data centres in Austria for over 10 years, and we will continue to evaluate every available option to further optimize the energy efficiency of our new project,' added Madlo.
The land acquired is part of the urban development project 'TwentyOne' by Bondi Consult. The transaction was supported by Gassauer-Fleissner Attorneys at Law.
