Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) provider 3W Infra B.V.
(3W Infra) has moved its IaaS infrastructure to a new data center in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. 3W Infra, which also has its headquarters in the Dutch capital, was established in 2014. The company offers enterprise-grade hosting solutions that are “tailored to the specific needs of each customer”. These include dedicated servers and collocation options. The move to an Amsterdam-based data center is designed to address increased interest in the company’s services.
3W Infra is growing at a substantial rate. In the second half of 2016 the company increased the number of servers it manages from 3,000 to 4,000. The migration to Switch Datacenters’ ISO 27001-compliant AMS1 data center, which uses “indirect adiabatic cooling technology and hot aisle containment” to manage energy efficiency, will offer 3W Infra additional capacity to address such growth. AMS1 offers around 400 data center racks and allows 3W Infra to “offer companies considerable growth perspective”. The migration will be finished at the end of April 2017.
“The 2N power configuration gives 3W Infra customers a robust 100% uptime guarantee instead of the 99.999% we had before,” explained 3W Infra’s Managing Director, Roy Premchand. “The easy-scalable power modules available onsite allow our clients to grow their power infrastructure in a cost-efficient way. They can start with 5 Ampere and grow their infrastructure with 5 Ampere each time they need to add more power for their equipment.”Do you know of any other companies moving services to new data centers?
