DUB 2 Data Centre expansion to employ 70 construction workers

18 May 2011

Its third investment in Dublin in 18 months, European data centre giant Interxion is pumping €7.1 million into its DUB 2 Data Centre, employing 70 construction workers to complete the expansion.

The expansion will increase Interxion’s equipped space in Dublin by nearly 25pc, enabling it to continue to meet growing customer demand for colocation space and services, particularly from customers in the fast-growing digital media, gaming and cloud computing sectors.

The expansion project will also increase the available power supply by an additional 1 MW. This will address the current and future needs of companies running cloud-based applications or virtualised servers that require high-power-density deployments.

“This investment more than triples our equipped space over an 18-month period,” said Tanya Duncan, managing director, Interxion Ireland.

“With access to over 26 communication networks as well as the INEX Internet exchange, our Dublin facilities provide an ideal environment for customer infrastructure as cloud-based delivery becomes even more widespread.”

The expansion project is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2011.
