AMSTERDAM – Interxion Holding NV, a leading European provider of carrier and cloud-neutral colocation data center services, broadcast that in response to maintained customer demand, Interxion will build new data centers in Frankfurt, Germany (“FRA15”) and Marseille, France (“MRS3”).
David Ruberg, Interxion’s Chief Executive Officer, said, “Interxion Frankfurt is the leading cloud and connectivity hub in Germany with over 20 cloud deployments from the leading global cloud platforms and 235 network service providers present.”
In Frankfurt, FRA15 is strategized to be built in four phases, providing in total 9,600 square meters of equipped space and 19 megawatts of customer available power when fully constructed. The first phase of FRA15, which is planned to offer approximately 2,300 sqm, is expected to open for business in early 2020. The capital expenditure connected with FRA15 is planned to be approximately €175 million.

Strong demand from global customers is driving our growth in each of Frankfurt and Marseille as they seek to benefit from the highly-developed communities of interest that we have created in these markets.”
In Marseille, MRS3 will be erected in three phases, providing approximately 7,100 sqm of equipped space and 17 MW of customer available power when built to its full potential. The first phase of MRS3, which is strategized to offer approximately 2,300 sqm, is expected to open towards the end of 2019.
