Edward Lawson, Senior Vice President of Business Development at NexGen, comments: “This is a strategic expansion for NexGen, developed in response to strong customer demand. Interxion’s significant European footprint and status as a high-quality carrier-neutral data centre colocation provider will be very important to us as we continue our European expansion. As well as offering both short and long-term value to NexGen, this relationship provides exciting opportunities for our customers who are looking to improve latency and diversity.”
