December 4, 2017
Carrier-neutral data center provider Datacenter.com has announced completion of phase one of its new Amsterdam-based colocation data center. Datacenter.com, which has headquarters on the island of Cyprus, offers “state-of-the-art data center infrastructure” and “energy efficient, highly interconnected and modular colocation facilities”. Known as AMS1, the new center is part of an “extremely ambitious” launch of data centers around the world over the next number of years. Now in operation, the energy-efficient AMS1 data center incorporates indirect adiabatic cooling technologies to produce a “pPUE figure of 1.04”. Located in Amsterdam’s business district it features “one of the highest fiber densities in the world” and will offer 54,000 square feet of colocation data center space once completed. Phase 1 provides 19,500 square feet of colocation space and is located close to Amsterdam Schiphol International Airport and the Amsterdam Internet Exchange (AMS-IX). The ISO 14001:2015-accredited facility runs on 100% renewable energy and 60% of the project has already been pre-let.
“Our highly secure, highly reliable colocation data center in Amsterdam generated serious interest from multiple customers prior to go-live,” explained Jochem Steman, Datacenter.com’s CEO. “Our company management and engineering team gained trust and commitment from a significant part of those prospects. Among them quite a lot of cloud providers, also large ones, planning to reduce the cost of their global network access and improve their business performance. Our highly efficient data center infrastructure with high-density power levels and multiple low-latency connectivity options to choose from will cater to the needs of HPC, finance and gaming customers as well.”
