VPS.net Hits the Ground Running in Europe with Interxion

LONDON - 10 May 2012 - INTERXION HOLDING NV, (NYSE: INXN), a leading European provider of carrier-neutral colocation data centre services, today announced that VPS.net, part of the UK2 Group and a global leader in cloud hosting, has chosen to host its cloud services for France and Germany in Interxion's data centres in Paris and Frankfurt.

VPS.net offers Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) to its customers. The basis of its cloud hosting services lies in providing low-cost, flexible, and scalable solutions to these customers. To maintain its rapid pace of global roll out, VPS.net needed to be able to scale up quickly and to engage with each new market in an informed and relevant way. Interxion's strong European presence helped VPS.net to navigate the commercial differences and varying rules, regulations, and laws that are inherent in doing business across Europe.

By locating in Interxion's cloud hubs, VPS.net and its customers can derive business value from close proximity to other cloud service providers, potential customers and connectivity providers. With over 400 carriers, access to over 2,000 ISPs, 18 of Europe's leading public Internet exchanges, in multiple sites, Interxion's connectivity options are unparalleled across Europe.

Rus Foster, Managing Director, VPS.net, commented, "By working with Interxion, we gain access to valuable expertise, top-class facilities, and comprehensive support. Thanks to Interxion's local knowledge, we've gained a valuable understanding of customer mind-sets in these markets, and that has helped us ramp up operations in just three weeks. Interxion delivers real value-add through the community of other providers and like-minded companies it can put us in touch with."

Vincent in't Veld, Director of Cloud Segment, Interxion, added, "Based around major business and consumer centres for fast access to local markets, we believe our cloud hubs provide an excellent gateway into European markets. Customers like VPS.net can achieve the capacity and flexibility they need to grow their business. A single, consistent SLA across all countries makes it easy to extend across Europe, and our local support teams provide the tailored insight to make expansion a success."

Pleased with the support it has received in moving quickly to capitalise on market opportunities, VPS.net considers France and Germany as the first phase of its European expansion, before moving into Southeast Asia.
