LONDON, October 13, 2011 -
INTERXION, a leading European provider of carrier-neutral colocation data centre services, today released a series of images revealing the inner workings of its European data centres.
Usually concealed behind the fortress-like protection of mantraps, CCTV, security guards and biometric scanning, Interxion gave limited access to key areas across its data centres in order to show how its facilities act as the technology backbone of some of Europe’s most successful businesses.
The data centre images captured in the photographs illustrate different aspects of high-availability data centre infrastructure, such as power, cooling, connectivity and security, all of which are essential to ensure 24/7 availability. The infrastructure shown has attracted a number of customer communities or ‘hubs’ across the financial, cloud, digital media and gaming sectors. Interxion’s hubs allow businesses to generate revenue by interconnecting with other customers and building new relationships with organisations operating in similar sectors while providing them with access to one of Europe’s largest pool of businesses and private customers.
Kevin Dean, CMO at Interxion commented, “Data centres have become pervasive, touching every facet of our lives. They provide the foundation that underpins much of our interaction between businesses, with friends and with family. These images show what it takes to really enable services that we take for granted, from share trading in the City to IP TV or online music streaming.”
