Interxion, a European provider of carrier- and cloud-neutral colocation data center solutions, has signed an agreement with Telxius, a neutral telecommunications infrastructure operator, to enable direct interconnection for the Dunant subsea cable at Interxion Paris.
Dunant is the first new subsea cable connecting France and the United States for the last 15 years and is one of a new generation of transatlantic subsea cables being deployed to meet the demand for increased capacity and enhanced resilience in global network infrastructure.
Telxius’ capacity on Dunant will extend the reach and capacity of PlatformDIGITAL, Digital Realty’s global data center platform. The new direct connection between Northern Virginia and Paris gives enterprises greater resiliency, flexibility and performance as they look to interconnect workflows globally and deploy hybrid IT solutions at these key centers of data exchange.
Interxion’s Paris campus is one of the world’s leading digital business hubs comprising seven data centers and is undergoing major expansion with the construction of the Interxion Paris Digital Park. Interxion customers in all existing and planned data centers can interconnect seamlessly to Telxius’ network capacity on Dunant.
