Colocation data center provider Greenhouse Datacenters
has expanded its collaboration with DCspine. The company, which has colocation data centers in the Netherlands (Naaldwijk and the Rotterdam/The Hague area), was established in 2013. It focuses on providing “energy-efficient” data center services that are ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 27001, and PCI DSS certified. Its two Netherlands-based centers, named DC 1 and DC 2, offer “layered security” based on European EN 50600 guidelines and feature ‘Power Usage Effectiveness’ (PUE) values of ’1.2’.
These colocation facilities are connected to more than 10 carriers and offer access to regional and European Internet exchanges. DCspine’s network Point-of-Presence (PoP) is now also available through Greenhouse Datacenters’ flagship DC 2 facility.
DCspine is part of the Eurofiber Group and was established in 2017. The company specializes in networking, open networking, and data center interconnection. It offers a “fully automated, state of the art, high capacity data center interconnection platform”. DCspine primarily caters to data centers and ‘on cloud’ service providers (CSPs) operating from colocation data centers. With a Point of Presence (PoP) housed in DC 2 the company can connect with “more than 70 data centers in the Netherlands and Belgium”.
“Since its foundation in 2017, DCspine has proven itself as a stable and ambitious network partner in the Dutch market, with expansion into Belgium since the end of 2019,” explained Greenhouse Datacenters’ Chief Commercial Officer, Guido Sip. “There is a lot of interest from colocation customers for the on-demand data center interconnection possibilities offered by DCspine. This enables customers to realize scalable connectivity with data centers throughout the Netherlands and internationally in an easily accessible manner. The network PoP in Greenhouse DC 2 is an excellent addition to our connectivity portfolio. It offers customers a great deal of flexibility and also extensive possibilities for creating redundancy.”
“A strong networked system is important for colocation data centers, especially when it comes to enterprise customers and cloud service providers seeking maximum redundancy and flexibility for their IT infrastructures while pursuing cost efficiencies,” added DCspine’s Director, Jan Michiel Berkel. “It’s great to notice that Greenhouse recognizes the value of DC-spine’s software-defined connectivity and functionality. Greenhouse (Datacenters) is also one of the few data center providers available for co-locating IT infrastructures in the Hague/Rotterdam region, even though there’s a lot of activity here, also from international enterprises with their headquarters located in this area.”Do you know of any other companies expanding collaboration?
