US public cloud startup moves into Interxion’s Amsterdam data centre

08 Sep 2018

This week Interxion announced a new customer at its Amsterdam data centre campus.

Paperspace, a U.S. startup specialising in providing access to cloud computing resources on any device, has elected to expand its presence in Europe with Interxion.

The company is looking to utilise Interxion’s facilities in Amsterdam to better serve its European customer base with next-generation applications, cloud machine learning and artificial intelligence pipelines.

“Between the technical requirements, complexities of the local market and new regulations, expanding into new territories is challenging for fast-growing companies,” says Interxion international vice president Doug Loewe.

“As Europe’s leading colocation provider, Interxion has expertise to help companies like Paperspace navigate these new landscapes. Moreover, as one of the most well-connected data centre campuses in Europe Interxion Schiphol serves as a key hub for businesses like Paperspace looking to expand their global reach.”

According to Paperspace, the company has seen a surge in demand for its services in Europe, and Interxion’s Amsterdam data centre campus provided the ideal ‘gateway’ into the region – specifically because of its high-density power, connectivity and security.

“Our goal at Paperspace is to support the demand from our customers by delivering them optimum experiences, no matter where they are located around the world,” says Paperspace co-founder Dan Kobran.

“To do this, it’s critical that we work with a consistent and flexible partner in Europe. With its strategically located, reliable and highly-connected facilities, Interxion has been the perfect partner for us, and has seamlessly supported our rapid expansion.”

Interxion too has seen rapid growth in Europe, with the company now boasting 50 data centres across 13 European cities, in addition to low-latency connectivity to a number of markets via a community of more than 700 connectivity providers and direct access to over 20 exchange providers.
