Digital Realty Trust is considering an acquisition of the European data centre operator Interxion, according to reports citing the investor news service DealReporter. Interxion's plans to merge with Telecity were scuppered last year when Telecity paired up with Equinix instead. US-based Digital Realty has been expanding in the retail colocation market and recently acquired Telx in the US. A takeover of Interxion would strengthen its footprint in Europe. Digital Realty already has about 20 data centres in Europe, while Interxion has 40 data centres in 11 European countries.
