Interxion: A Digital Realty Company and a leading European provider of carrier- and cloud-neutral colocation data centre solutions, has acquired the freehold to a parcel of land approximately one kilometre from its existing campus in Vienna. The expansion parcel will be fully connected to the existing campus and totals 22,000sqm, allowing for the development of up to 40 megawatts of additional IT capacity.
The expansion is a continuation of Digital Realty’s ongoing investment in PlatformDIGITAL, the company’s global data centre platform, which is benefitted from growing global demand and the increasing need for companies to implement digital transformation strategies in the face of the pandemic.
“The expansion of our Vienna campus will enable Interxion to offer local and global service providers additional data centre capacity to seamlessly expand their services in the region via PlatformDIGITAL,” said Martin Madlo, Managing Director, Austria, Interxion: A Digital Realty Company. “At the same time, we will continue to support Austrian enterprises as they roll out their hybrid IT infrastructure by combining leading cloud services, global connectivity and Interxion’s colocation solutions.”
The design of the four buildings, to be known as Digital Park – Paukerwerkstrasse, will focus on sustainable operations and energy efficiency. “We have been using renewable energy sources to power our data centres in Austria for over 10 years, and we will continue to evaluate every available option to further optimize the energy efficiency of our new project,” added Madlo.
The land acquired is part of the urban development project “TwentyOne” by Bondi Consult. The transaction was supported by Gassauer-Fleissner Attorneys at Law.
Interxion: A Digital Realty Company currently provides data centre solutions to more than 700 connectivity providers in over 100 data centres across 11 European countries. Parent company, Digital Reality owns and operates 280 facilities in 22 countries spread across six continents.
