We’re at it again: a new expansion of the number of racks in the data centers we partner with. This extra capacity is the result of expeditious growth, as we unburden our customers with colocation and connectivity, fully tailored to their needs.
The rack space we have available at Digital Realty Business Park (AMS18) has more than doubled this month. Indeed, the colocation capacity at this Amsterdam data center has been expanded with a new row of 24 racks. For now, this brings the total colocation capacity that DC1.AMSTERDAM has at this partner location to nearly 50 racks.
At data center Digital Realty Science Park (AMS17, Data Tower), we recently increased the number of racks available to us for colocation and connectivity by 10. That makes for a DC1.AMSTERDAM colocation space of 30 racks at that location in Amsterdam.
Rack space capacity planning
We also did capacity planning for our partner data center NorthC, location Fokker Logistics Park, Oude Meer (OUM01). It looks like we will ‘need’ to expand the current number of (13) racks there as well this year. This is due to increasing customer demand for the all-in-1 colocation package of DC1.AMSTERDAM.
Very content with our customers
We are pleased with our balanced growth, in relatively short time since the establishment (in 2021) of our new cooperative for colocation and (internet) connectivity in one. In addition, we are very pleased with the diversity of customers that make this steady, healthy uptrend possible. We have already welcomed many companies with diverse backgrounds, such as from the security, hosting, events and streaming sectors.
From the very beginning, we have been working with new businesses that want to have one central provider and one point of contact for their entire colocation and networking solution. ‘Customized personal service’ is an overused term, but one that DC1.AMSTERDAM takes seriously and professionally.
Custom rack setup
The needs for colocation, network connectivity and its exact setup in the data center can vary considerably from one company to another. That’s why we first listen carefully to the exact requirements and business context. We then together determine which of our network setup options will provide the most optimal connections, in connection with the equipment and underlying infrastructure.
Energy-efficient and cost-conscious colocation and connectivity
With our custom rack setup, if desired, we will also help you consider what the most suitable hardware is. Especially with a data center migration, you have the perfect opportunity to get started with new – and preferably energy-efficient – equipment. This is even more important now that energy costs within the rack have become a very substantial part of the total cost of renting colocation. So opt for a cost-effective operation with a deliberate focus on these long-term ongoing costs. Tip: also choose our fixed rates for power costs (based on consumption).
