2 November 2010 - Interxion, a leading European operator of carrier-neutral data centres, today announced that it has entered a strategic alliance with Telx, a leading provider of interconnection, colocation and business exchange services in strategic, high-demand North American markets. The non exclusive alliance will provide a smooth transatlantic migration path into industry-leading, connectivity-rich colocation facilities for both Telx and Interxion customers, with particular strategic benefits for customers in the Financial Services sector.
Telx and Interxion host large Financial Services communities of interest in financial centres such as Chicago, New York, London, Frankfurt, Stockholm and Zurich. These communities of interest bring together a large number of investment and trading firms, brokers, hedge funds, exchanges, MTFs, market data providers, clearing houses, order management vendors and (trading) network providers. Both companies see tremendous synergies in this area, delivering value to the investment and trading community by facilitating cost-effective, low-latency proximity hosting services to leading liquidity venues on both sides of the Atlantic. The companies also see increasing synergies in other communities of interest, such as the Service Provider, Cloud Computing, SaaS, Digital Media, and Content customer communities.
“Our alliance with Telx will provide a smooth path for Telx customers into Europe’s leading consumer and business hubs and enable our European customers to tap into new business opportunities in the United States,” said David Ruberg, Chief Executive Officer, Interxion. “There is also a good strategic fit – Telx’s approach to colocation is similar to Interxion’s, with a focus on providing connectivity-rich environments and adding value for customers by building segment-specific communities of interest.”
“Telx’s U.S.-based, multinational clients have global requirements, and many require a single source solution,” said Eric Shepcaro, Chief Executive Officer, Telx. “By forging this strategic alliance with Interxion, we can extend our solutions to include international data centre options and a broader services mix that helps both U.S. and European businesses enter new markets quickly and cost-effectively.”
