The extension of Interxion’s London Metro Connect solution enables customers to improve performance and reduce costs.
INTERXION: A DIGITAL REALTY COMPANY EXPANDS LONDON METRO CONNECT AND BEGINS A NEW DIGITAL ERA WITH OUR NEW BRAND
With three more data centre campuses now connected, the London network offers more control over cost, performance, security and scalability. Interxion’s London Metro Connect solution enables its customers to connect to 12 London data centres and six interconnected colocation and scale data centre campuses across Greater London. All of our data centres are part of PlatformDIGITAL® – a 290-strong ecosystem of data centres across the world that support the ever-changing data, control, and networking demands of global enterprises.
The Connected London project, which was initially launched in June last year, enables customers to access a connected data community across Greater London and interconnect with carriers, partners, applications and cloud providers via a low-latency, high-bandwidth connection. With the extension of London Metro Connect solution, customers have even more options to reach the world’s leading service and connectivity providers, including 195+ carriers locally, 700+ carriers globally, as well all the leading global cloud providers via direct on-ramps.
Enterprises will also gain access to Digital Realty’s PlatformDIGITAL®, a first of its kind global data centre platform for scaling digital business. With our Network Hub and Data Hub, businesses can be strategic with the deployment of their IT infrastructure, keeping private workloads decentralised and secure, while simultaneously moving customer-facing data to a more central position where it’s needed most.
Recently we launched the Global Data Insights Survey and gathered insights from 7,000 C-level executives and business leaders, which found that an overwhelming majority (82%) agrees that a global data centre provider that is able to offer global coverage, capacity and direct connectivity across major metros on a single data centre platform is required to be successful in a world where data is becoming the business agenda. Through our global data centres, businesses can optimise network performance, connect critical data and tailor infrastructure deployments to scale digital business.
The technology used to connect London’s largest colocation network comprises of dark fibre and ‘Managed Wave’ equipment. This provides a private and upgraded path between the now 12 sites, offering higher performance and quicker speeds of connectivity compared to purchasing bandwidth or leased line capacity on an existing network.
Coming in Q3, 2022 Interxion will be starting an exciting new chapter. At MarketplaceLIVE, our annual flagship event held in New York, we revealed our new brand. Interxion is excited to be rebranding to Digital Realty in the coming months.
Over the years, Digital Realty has evolved with the ever-changing digital world and understands the importance of unlocking the opportunities of data. With this in mind, we are refreshing and modernising our visual identity, and we are unifying our global brands helping to simplify and drive forward an even more collaborative and customer-focused business that retains that important local presence and expertise for customers across all the countries we operate in.
