Located in Amsterdam, Netherlands, maincubes’ AMS01 data center offers a strategic location for expanding Leaseweb’s data center presence.
maincubes is part of ‘Art-Invest’ - a German investor and real estate developer that is itself part of the Zech Group. Alongside Amsterdam maincubes has data centers in Frankfurt, Germany. The company’s European data centers provide “colocation services and secure ecosystems for the digital future of customers across various industries.” maincubes’ global IT services include Internet of Things (IoT) options, cyber security services, and cloud services. AMS01 met Leaseweb’s requirements for “energy-efficiency, compliance and high-redundancy” and offers the scalability Leaseweb needs to grow. Security and “price/quality ratios” were also key to the company’s choice.
“maincubes is one of the few independent European colocation data center operators still left in the Amsterdam area, and is a company that has the same entrepreneurial spirit as Leaseweb,” explained Leaseweb Netherlands’ Managing Director, Arno Witvliet. “We like their pure-play colocation focus, as well as the data center amenities they have in place, like an N+1+1 generator infrastructure setup, for example. It fits the high-quality and high-availability standards Leaseweb has set for the hosting solutions we deliver from our data centers globally.”
“Our data center infrastructures are engineered for market-leading companies, with a keen eye for detail meeting enterprise requirements,” added maincubes’ CEO, Oliver Menzel. “We proudly welcome Leaseweb to our Amsterdam facility as a market leader on a global level, and we appreciate their acknowledgment of the high-standard data center quality being established.” Do you know of any other companies winning customers?
