High security network for German education organisation

Interxion : 03 July, 2009  (Application Story)
DFN of Germany chooses Interxion to provide their network hub at their high security data centre in Frankfurt
Interxion has announced that DFN (Deutsches Forschungsnetz), Germany's national research and education network, has significantly expanded its network hub at the Interxion Frankfurt campus. The DFN hub has been based in Interxion's high-security data centres in Frankfurt since 1999 and enables X-WIN, a high-performance research and education platform.

DFN provides a high-performance infrastructure for the German research and education community, connecting over 400 universities and research institutions in Europe and other continents, and supporting the development of innovative applications. Since 2006 DFN's national backbone has been the X-WiN, which is connected to the European Backbone GÉANT and is an integral part of the worldwide community of research and education networks.

Interxion provides DFN with a failsafe high-performance infrastructure, ISO 27001-certified information security processes, and direct access to over 150 network and internet service providers. The availability of so many different connectivity options ensures almost unlimited scalability and flexibility.

"Reliable, sustainable service quality is vital for a powerful network like ours, and Interxion provides us with ample power, a state-of-the-art infrastructure, extensive security measures and reliable processes," said Martin Wilhelm, DFN Deputy Managing Director. "With Interxion we also have high bandwidths for high-availability internet performance, and we can connect with any of the major internet providers, as well as DE-CIX, Germany's leading internet exchange."

"We are extremely pleased to be building on our successful and long-lasting relationship with DFN," said Peter Knapp, Managing Director, Interxion Germany. "DFN is a vital platform for both German and global research and education efforts, and Interxion is dedicated to meeting the high standards of reliability, security and availability they require."
