Switch Datacenters to add 18,300 sq ft wholesale colocation space to Switch AMS1 Campus in Amsterdam

Switch Datacenters, a European provider of build-to-suit corporate data centres and enterprise-grade colocation facilities, has announced its plans to commence development of a new data centre at its data centre campus in Amsterdam.

Adjacent to Switch Datacenters’ existing data halls, this 18,300 square feet new data centre will be built to offer wholesale colocation space to a large enterprise, managed colocation provider, or cloud provider searching for Amsterdam-based dedicated data centre presence.
Located at one of the world’s most fibre-dense areas, in the Amsterdam Southeast business district, the 18,300 sq ft new wholesale colocation data centre offered by Switch Datacenters will feature a highly redundant enterprise-grade design with a 2N power configuration. It has modular thus highly scalable power feeds, and is upgradable from a capacity of 2MVA up to 10MVA and more. The use of energy-efficient cooling technologies would result in an ultralow pPUE figure of 1.04, which is extremely energy-efficient.
On top of the whitespace available, the wholesale colocation data centre being offered in Amsterdam also includes 8,600 sq ft of dedicated Class A office space. Right now, a high customisation degree can still be provided for this office space – to meet highly specific customer demand.
“The new-to-build wholesale data centre offering in Amsterdam constitutes of turnkey space that will be move-in ready and fully aligned with the most demanding server power density requirements in the industry,” sats Gregor Snip, CEO and founder of Switch Datacenters, an official member of the OCP community. “A large enterprise, a managed colocation provider, or a large cloud provider will find here enterprise-grade data centre infrastructure meeting high-availability requirements set by mission-critical business applications. This highly redundant, highly secured and highly connected data centre space will allow us once again to meet enterprise-grade standards such as ISO 27001 and PCI DSS, just as the other wholesale and retail data centres delivered by Switch Datacenters.”
