Netherlands-based data center provider Interxion has added about 7,500 sq ft (700 sq m) of space at its ZUR1 data center in Zurich, Switzerland. The facility is home to the Swiss Internet Exchange (SwissIX), a non-profit coalition of ISP's and carriers that uses numerous data centers around the country for peering among its members.

More than half of the new space has been leased out, Interxion Switzerland Managing Director Eddy Van den Broeck said in a statement. "We will continue to enhance our facilities and build on our standards to support customer communities in all sectors as they expand, develop and launch the latest mission-critical applications."

This is the first of three planned expansion phases at the Zurich facility, which provides access to more than 30 carriers and ISP's.

Another upgrade taking place at the facility is installation of a redundant 20 MVA power-grid connection. According to Interxion, the data center's electrical infrastructure features 2N UPS redundancy and N+1 generator redundancy.

The provider says it currently serves more than 1,100 customers in 28 data centers in 11 countries around Europe.

Its latest expansion prior to Zurich was announced in July. It was an addition of 14MW of power capacity at a data center in Frankfurt, Germany. The city appears to be important in Interxion's expansion strategy. The company is in the midst of building a sixth data center there, expected to come online in the third quarter.

In March, Interxion also bought a 160,000-sq-ft greenfield site in Frankfurt, which it said it would start developing once FRA6 is complete.
