New carbon-neutral data centre in Frankfurt
Published: 29 October 2019 - Carly Wills
maincubes is expanding its European network of data centres, with a new planned data centre in the Frankfurt Rhine-Main area.
FRA02 will focus on sustainability in particular. Approximately 8,500 square metres of colocation white space are to be built on five floors – with carbon-neutral operations and specific offerings providing customers with a highly secured and climate-friendly home for their ICT infrastructures.
More and more companies are opting for colocation and are thus looking for a strategically central region such as the Frankfurt Rhine-Main area in Germany. There, they would benefit from direct access to the world's largest internet hub, DE-CIX.
The planned FRA02 data centre is set to create new standards, particularly in terms of climate protection and customer requirements. With its state-of-the-art architecture, materials and technologies, maincubes offers 100 per cent carbon-neutral operation, thus contributing significantly to climate protection in the IT sector. The rooms are also adapted to customer requirements, giving companies the opportunity to design their colocation environment according to their individual needs.
In order to create a high-performance infrastructure, maincubes is currently planning to use state-of-the-art technology and room-specific cooling concepts with FRA02. The data centre will achieve a PUE ratio of well below 1.3, thus ensuring a climate-friendly power efficiency that is considerably higher than the average for data centres. In addition, maincubes offers a multiple, redundant carrier connection for optimal connectivity at FRA02 and its other data centres in Frankfurt and Amsterdam. These factors, combined with the highest security requirements, the use of innovative technology and comprehensive certification according to ISO/IEC 27001:2013, guarantees customers 100 per cent SLA availability for FRA02.
