Addition of sixth datacenter strengthens Dataplace’s position in international growth market
Alblasserdam, 18 May 2020: Dataplace, the Netherlands’ leading carrier neutral datacenter operator, has opened a sixth Tier III datacenter in Hoofddorp. The brand-new datacenter is designed for full 2N configuration and showcases state-of-the-art proven technologies in the field of continuity, security and sustainability.
The new datacenter on Parellaan in Hoofddorp has been fully operational since 1 May. With a total floor area of roughly 4,500 m2 and a net datacenter floor area of 2,000 m2, the facility allows Dataplace now to provide its high-quality datacenter services in the Amsterdam metropolitan area also. The location makes Dataplace an attractive partner for national as well as international organizations.
Gerben van der Veen, Managing Director of Dataplace: “As business activity in the Amsterdam metropolitan area continues to grow rapidly, demand for colocation services is also increasing. We are delighted that we can now provide datacenter solutions in the region from this brand-new location. Dataplace is a leading national player, and the opening of our sixth datacenter at this location allows us also to raise our international profile, while retaining our regional personality and personal approach as well as a strong customer focus.”
Jan Bonke, Manager Operations of Dataplace: “We relied on our own expertise and experience to design the technical systems and installations entirely in house. Our engineers created a 2N solution that is configured for a fully separated A & B power supply. This design fully meets the needs and demands that the market currently places on a hypermodern datacenter.”
Alex Goldblum, CEO of Eurofiber: “This expansion gives Eurofiber a national cloud infrastructure in the Netherlands, providing a perfect platform for national and international parties alike. It represents another significant milestone for Dataplace, and by extension for Eurofiber, in line with our growth ambition in Europe. As part of this strategy we also recently acquired Eura DC, which operates two datacenters in France. Our digital infrastructure currently consists of eight hypermodern datacenters and 36,000 kilometres of installed fiberoptic cable.”
Dataplace was formed in 2011 and has been part of the Eurofiber Group since 2016. It provides highquality (twin) datacenter services from six modern carrier-neutral Tier III datacenters in the Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Utrecht, Arnhem and Noord-Brabant regions.
