Interxion’s Carrier Community Enables Access to AWS Direct Connect and Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute

INTERXION HOLDING NV (NYSE:INXN), a leading European provider of cloud and carrier-neutral colocation data centre services, announced today that its customers can establish private connections to both Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure from all of its 37 data centres across 11 countries through the presence of Amazon’s Direct Connect Partners and Microsoft’s ExpressRoute Partners.

Amazon Web Services, through AWS Direct Connect, and Microsoft Azure, through ExpressRoute, offer customers the option to establish private connections between their cloud platforms and private IT infrastructure. Such connections provide improved security and may enhance performance through lower latency and higher throughputs compared to Internet-based connections.

These connections are available from leading AWS Direct Connect and Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute network partners such as Level 3, Verizon, AT&T, IX Reach and BT – who all have points of presence in Interxion data centres.

“Our data centres act as a true Cloud Hub, enabling interconnection between Cloud Services Providers, their customers and channel partners making it attractive to customers building and managing reliable and high performance hybrid IT solutions. Thanks to our rich carrier community, our customers are provided with a choice to order services from. For example, in London, Frankfurt, Paris and Amsterdam we have at least 6 AWS Direct Connect and all 4 network partners for Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute,” said Vincent in’t Veld, Director of Cloud Segment at Interxion.

As part of its carrier and cloud neutral data centre strategy, Interxion will enable similar solutions with additional global and national cloud service providers in the future.
