TelecityGroup opens Amsterdam data centre
7th APRIL 2008: Telecity Group plc ('TelecityGroup' or the 'Group'), the leading pan-European operator of network independent data centres, today announced its new Amstel Business Park data centre is open for business.
The new high specification data centre will offer approximately 4,000 square metres and 8 megawatts (MW) of customer capacity. A significant investment in the design and planning of the new facility ensured the project was commissioned on time. Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC), the leading global consulting, systems integration and outsourcing services company, was the first customer to go live in the new facility. Several other well-known brands have already contracted to take capacity at the data centre including a significant agreement with a global content distribution company.
Alexandra Schless, Managing Director of TelecityGroup Netherlands, says: “Our new Amstel Business Park data centre offers a highly connected, secure and resilient hosting environment supported by some of the most sophisticated air and water cooling systems available, and which are designed to deliver greater efficiencies than the systems currently used in most legacy data centres. We are delighted the data centre is now open for business. We have already signed up a number of important customers for the data centre, and our pipeline is very strong. In addition, from launch we have agreements in place with multiple connectivity providers ensuring diverse, resilient connectivity in the facility.”
In addition to the new facility in Amsterdam, TelecityGroup is opening a 5,000 square metre data centre in London in May 2008, bringing the total number of TelecityGroup data centres in Europe to twenty.
Mike Tobin, CEO of TelecityGroup, comments: “Delivering Amstel Business Park on time, and to the standard we expect, demonstrates that TelecityGroup has the capability to both build and operate industry-leading data centres to the highest standard. Coupled with the forthcoming launch of Powergate in London, these new facilities keep us very much at the forefront of the network independent data centre services market in Europe.”
