Interxion has a partnership with Equinix:
Both companies were established in a similar timeframe (1998), 
raised similar amounts of money and have similar services/products.
fyi: Interxion has the largest carrier neutral datacentre 
footprint in Europe & is one of the few datacentre companies with 
really good power engineering standards; note that I am slightly 
biased in this matter.

InterXion has quite a few datacenters in Europe. Most of them 
house (a 
part of) the local peering infrastructure. They are all carrier 
the power/HVAC/security is very good/...
