European data center provider Datacenter.com
has announced the expansion of its data center facility in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Datacenter.com - a company noted for paying more than $500,000 for its domain name - has headquarters Amsterdam. Established in 2015, it leverages advanced infrastructure to provide Data Center-as-a-Service (DCaaS) options through ‘AMS1’, an ISO 14001:2015-accredited data center which is also located in central Amsterdam. The options offered through ‘AMS1’ include on-demand colocation and hybrid solution services. The planned expansion of the center “will increase Datacenter.com's equipped space by nearly 50%”.
Datacenter.com’s Amsterdam facility provides “the highest level of redundancy, reliability and connectivity” and caters to users who benefit from the provision of bespoke colocation services. These users are involved in industries that require intensive use of resources like digital media, gaming and cloud computing. Datacenter.com is expanding the Amsterdam facility as a response to “growing customer demand for high capacity and flexible colocation space and services”. The expansion will benefit existing and future customers who require high-power-density deployments to run cloud-based applications or virtualized workloads. The expansion will be mirrored by an 1.5MW increase in the facility’s available power. Completion is earmarked for the third quarter of this year.
"Since the opening of our Amsterdamfacility we have a diversified customer bases by offering low latency network connectivity combined with high capacity and flexible colocation solutions. We are happy to see new and existing clients growing rapidly to almost sell out our first phase of our Amsterdamfacility within the first 12 Months", says Jochem Steman, Chief Executive Officer of Datacenter.com.
