Interxion, the European colocation provided unveiled plans for increasing its existing data focal point in London campus. This news came on Wednesday Nov 2nd, 2011, when Interxion announced the new expansion plot for its data focal point. The plot includes expansion of both the space and power capacity. Interxion will also be adding 11 MW of customer power to the City of London campus.

Therefore, this expansion plot by Interxion is tapping into the future growth plans for its existing and potential customers.
Interxion is currently catering for over 100 trading and investment companies, with low latency connectivity to trading exchanges located within close proximity to Interxion’s London campus.
It is also worth mentioning here that Interxion is building another data focal point, which will house 1,700 square meters of new equipped space. The new data focal point is scheduled to be operational by the second quarter of 2012. This second London data focal point, known as LON 2, will support up to 4.3kVA per square feet of customer load and has been secured by a long term rent. LON2 investment is expected to be of approximately $52.4 million.
The new Interxion projects will occupy up to 32,808 square feet of new equipped space in Europe, within one and a half year (from January 2011 and June 2012). This new space will be apart of Interxion’s new facilities and upgrades in key European markets, which include major cities such as Paris, Dublin, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, London and Vienna.
