Madrid, Spain – (The Hosting News) – February 20, 2009 – Operator of carrier-neutral data centers, and Espanix, Internet exchange in Southern Europe, Interxion, has entered into a partnership agreement that will extend the Espanix exchange infrastructure into Interxion’s Madrid data center.
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.
Ruben Bouso, Technical Director of Dinahosting, one of Spain’s fastest growing hosting companies, and one of the first Interxion customers to connect to Espanix offered, ”For us, connecting to Espanix makes perfect sense. 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.
Robert Assink, Managing Director at Interxion Spain remarked, ”By enabling our customers to exchange IP traffic with Espanix
