Interoute opens first data centre in Spain
Operator of Europe’s cloud services platform Interoute Communications has opened its first distributed data centre in Madrid, Spain, which will contribute a part of its pan-European network.
The new centre is designed to accommodate the growing demand from organisations and service providers for connectivity, hosting and cloud services in the region, the company says.
In addition, it is integrated with Interoute’s other data centres across Europe so the customers can be offered to choose whether they wish to place their data in Madrid or other locations, it adds.
The Madrid facility offers up to 32 kW per rack and consists of 13 independent data centre rooms, of which each room will be able to function as data centre within a data centre.
“The investment we have made in the Madrid data centre shows Interoute is committed to the Spanish market and the growing demand for both physical and virtual computing resources we are seeing here. This new physical site complements the Interoute Virtual Data Centre offering, and offers customers in the Spanish and European markets a unique international and integrated computing and connectivity solution,” says Diego Matas, General Manager, Interoute Iberia.
