Data center facilitator EvoSwitch are all set to expand their data center facility in Amsterdam. With this expansion, EvoSwitch will be adding 64,583 sq.feet of data center facility to their AMS1 hub in Amsterdam.
According to EvoSwitch, low latency connectivity, stable energy provision and the rise of cloud adoption are responsible for the spur in demand of data center services in Europe. They also stated that in response to this demand, extending their data center facility to support cloud-native businesses was necessary.
Eric Boonstra, CEO at EvoSwitch says that their insights into growing demand for co-location and data center services in Europe are well stated and explained by reputed firms in their market research reports. Explaining this, he added:
The CBRE and JLL reports result are in line with our own experiences and revenue results this year. Another report from Digital Gateway to Europe mentions some key drivers for the Netherlands being a top-10 data center hub in the world.
These key drivers include the wide range of high quality and low-latency connectivity options available; the stability of the energy grid in the Netherlands; and the country’s rapid expansion of ecosystems across networks, as well as cloud and hosting companies.
EvoSwitch say that the in order to meet these demands, they are taking a modular approach with their data center which will allow businesses to scale easily. Explaining this, Boonstra said:
Our patented, in-house engineered and highly modular data center design offers stand-alone units with their own multiple UPS back-up solutions, as well as distribution boards, cooling units, and fire suppression systems.
This allows for highly autonomous and easily scalable data center units being deployed, even as a partial solution within current data center expansion, catering to the needs of cloud service providers and so many other companies with dynamic, high-scalability needs.
