Interxion Partners with Espanix, Southern Europe’s Leading Internet Exchange

Interxion, a leading European operator of carrier-neutral data centres, and Espanix, the leading Internet exchange in Southern Europe, today announced a partnership agreement that will extend the Espanix exchange infrastructure into Interxion’s Madrid data centre. The agreement will allow Interxion’s Madrid customers to reduce latency and transit costs by peering directly with Espanix, while Espanix members will be able to expand their applications infrastructure in the security of Interxion’s 4,000m2 facility. The new Espanix infrastructure will go live at the beginning of March, and a number of Interxion customers have already signed up.

“For us, connecting to Espanix makes perfect sense, said Rubèn Bouso, Technical Director of Dinahosting, one of Spain’s fastest growing hosting companies, and one of the first Interxion customers to connect to Espanix. “We have a constant need to improve the quality of user experience for our customers, and the lower latency we get from peering at Espanix, in combination with the cost reduction in our IP traffic, makes very good business sense.”

Espanix ranks among Europe’s largest internet exchange points measured by traffic volume, handling more than 125 Gigabits per second. It is the 15th European Internet exchange to locate in one of Interxion’s 24 European data centres, and its members now join Interxion’s pan-European community of over 500 connected carriers and ISPs.

"By enabling our customers to exchange IP traffic with Espanix’s members and vice versa, both groups will benefit, and our position as one of Spain’s leading connectivity hubs will be strengthened,” said Robert Assink, Interxion Spain Managing Director. "At Interxion, Espanix members can build out secure, serviced network and content delivery infrastructure as and when demand requires, and Interxion customers can gain improvements in quality and cost-effectiveness by peering directly at Espanix.”
