Amsterdam data centre expansion completed
Published: 1 November 2019 - Carly Wills
Datacenter.com has completed phase II of its Datacenter.com AMS1 data centre. The expansion was necessary due to the strong demand from domestic and international enterprise and cloud computing customers looking to reduce IT infrastructure costs.
The data centre floor area of Datacenter.com AMS1 has been increased by 30 per cent to 1,800 square metres (approximately 19,400 square feet). This has created room for an additional 250 cabinets. In additional, 1.5 megawatt of additional power supply has also been realised. Phase II of this carrier-neutral data centre facility is now available for existing and new customers.
Datacenter.com AMS1 is strategically located in Amsterdam Southeast, on the prime fiber network routes from international carriers and backbones in Europe. It is engineered to deliver redundant critical power and cooling, allowing for concurrent maintenance without interruption based on the Uptime Institute TIER III architecture.
“Amsterdam continues to be a major central hub for data centres and our customers require top of the line infrastructure and flexible offerings. We continue to strategically expand Datacenter.com’s footprint based on customer and market demands,” Datacenter.com CEO Jochem Steman said.
“Datacenter.com’s innovative data centre offering provides significant operational efficiencies and costs benefits for our customers. We look forward to continuing to support our valued existing customers and new customers at our Datacenter.com AMS1 facility and other locations to meet their data centre needs and meet them as quickly as possible.”
