Customers located in Interxion’s Schiphol and Science Park campuses are now able to gain easy access to robust connectivity options across both campuses, as well as the top international carrier, over 40 ISPs, all major internet exchanges and leading cloud platform around the world.
Ruberg said: “Interxion Science Park extends our campus into another dimension of Amsterdam’s connectivity community and enhances the value proposition of our Schiphol campus by doubling our carrier and ISP density in one of Europe’s primary colocation markets.”
The company’s Amsterdam campus currently resides of eight data centres, with provided access to over 45 connectivity providers. The addition of the data centre business in Amsterdam’s Science Park adds to Interxion’s growing European data centre portfolio.
