Interxion officially announced an extension of its Zurich data center but the company has a total of seven new data center builds or expansions planned.

Anthony Foy, group managing director for the European data center builder told DatacenterDynamics that after the company extended its revolving credit line to 180 million Euro back in June 09 it was investing in seven sites, details of which would be announced over the next quarter.

Foy said recent research commissioned by the company revealed a huge demand for the company's colocation, hosting and managed services. The firm would add a Dublin site known as Dublin2.

Last week DE-CIX, the central, international Internet exchange in Frankfurt am Main, expanded its infrastructure at Interxion's Frankfurt5 data center. For the exchange DE-CIX, this means that they now have five infrastructure locations distributed across the city of Frankfurt.

Another recent customer win involved LBi, Europe's largest full-service digital agency, which will use Interxion to host part of its mission-critical data center infrastructure at Interxion's London City facility.

The project involves deployment of high-density power configurations to support its ongoing virtualization programme and also provide direct access to the London Internet Exchange (LINX).

The Zurich plan involves an additional 2,650 m2 of high-power-density, connectivity-rich space. The first phase of the new space is scheduled to be ready for service in early 2010. The data centre space, located next to Zurich Kloten airport and ten minutes from Zurich city centre, will offer redundant power and N+1 cooling.

"ZUR1 is already the largest carrier-neutral data centre in Switzerland, but sustained customer demand has made this ambitious expansion absolutely necessary," explained Eddy Van den Broeck, Interxion Switzerland Managing Director. "The new space will not only provide opportunities for new customers to locate their infrastructure with Interxion, it will also benefit existing customers by leveraging the vibrant internal marketplace which Interxion provides - a place where suppliers, carriers and customers can meet and exchange data and secure access to a wide range of external connectivity partners in addition to peering opportunities with the fast growing SwissIX Internet exchange."
