Interoute Builds its Cloud Capacity

Interoute is enhancing its cloud platform to offer computing, communication and connectivity services via its European data centers.  The company is adding an applications management product set and launching a Virtual Data Centre solution that can be configured as a private or public cloud.

The Virtual Data Centre service is initially available via Interoute's facilities in Amsterdam, Berlin, Geneva and London and will be launched via the Paris Data Centre in Q4.

Interoute is also investing in a new state of the art Data Centre in Ghent, Belgium, which will be fully operational in January 2013. The Data Centre is ISO-2007 and PCI certified, and will have an excellent, "green" Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) classification of 1.4.

Financially, Interoute said its top line revenues grew 15%, to  EUR 296.7 million in the first three quarters of 2012 over the same period in 2011.
