Cyxtera Technologies, the secure infrastructure company, announced the opening of its latest European data center in Amsterdam. Cyxtera’s newest facility in Amsterdam (AMS1) will commence business operations during the first quarter of 2020. The company will also expand its CXD on-demand data center platform to Frankfurt and Amsterdam.
“With the launch of our Amsterdam data center, we’re continuing to answer the demand coming from our customers,” said Alex Pearson, Senior Vice President for International Sales at Cyxtera, in a statement. “This is an important expansion of our European footprint, and the new facility will be particularly important to businesses in the finance, manufacturing and technology sectors who often need colocation space in this market.”
According to Cyxtera, AMS1 will provide a world-class, highly connected, secure infrastructure platform. It offers “total power of 72 megawatts to cloud providers, systems integrators, and multinational corporations.” The latest expansion in Amsterdam will widen the company’s global footprint to 2.9 million square feet and 248 megawatts. Cyxtera is leasing 29,000 square feet of technical space and 3 megawatts of power at AMS1, a data center campus in Polanen Park.
