Interxion, a Digital Realty Company and European carrier and cloud-neutral colocation data center solutions provider has begun the construction process of its third data center in Brussels, Belgium. The first phase of the data center project that is anticipated to be accomplished by Q$4 2021, will offer a total colocation capacity of approximately 1,280m2 when entirely built out.
The new data center extension, called Interxion BRU3 is pretty much close to the existing facilities on the Interxion Brussels Campus, the prominent cloud and interconnection hub in Belgium. The new data center development in Belgium would be benefitted from the same high levels of network connectivity available at the present data centers on the campus. It describes a strategic development of the roadmap for Digital Realty’s global infrastructure solution, PlatformDigital in Belgium.
In September 2020, Interxion expanded its operations into Croatia and Spain.
Dirk van de Geer, Managing Director, Interxion Belgium stated Interxion BRU3 facility satisfies the needs of both their local and global multinational enterprise clients by offering access to dense network connectivity, available power, and interconnectivity with other strategic European locations.
Additionally, he said that the company is glad to support local and global service providers with this new data center in Belgium that will allow them to seamlessly expand their services through PlatformDIGITAL.
Interxion BRU3 Facility – Sustainable District Heating Project
The Interxion BRU3 facility will take part in a new sustainable district heating project which is being launched in Zaventem, a Belgian municipality in the territory of Flemish Brabant. The new sustainable district heating project is about using the excess heat generated by the Interxion BRU3 facility to warm local households. This initiative supports Digital Realty’s commitment as a member of the Science-Based Targets initiative (SBTi) for global carbon mitigation globally declared at the start of this year.
