Cyxtera Chooses the Netherlands for European Market Expansion
Cyxtera partners with CyrusOne to open new data center facility in Amsterdam
US-based Cyxtera Technologies, a global leader in data center colocation and interconnection services, has opened a new facility in the Netherlands. Cyxtera partnered with US-based CyrusOne and chose PolanenPark in Amsterdam as the site for AMS1, Cyxtera’s new data center colocation facility. AMS1 will provide a world-class, highly connected infrastructure platform to support Cyxtera’s growing customer base in the European market. Cyxtera will lease 29,000 square feet and 3 megawatts of power at CyrusOne’s campus in PolanenPark. The facility will expand Cyxtera’s overall global footprint to 2.9 million square feet and 248 megawatts.
Dutch digital infrastructure offers launchpad for expanding global footprint
With its connectivity and digital infrastructure, the Netherlands was an ideal choice for Cyxtera to expand its global footprint. The Amsterdam area offers Cyxtera an advanced market for digital infrastructure operations. Most importantly, Cyxtera will have access to AMS-IX, one of the leading internet exchanges in the world, as well as several key undersea cable landing stations. Furthermore, the Netherlands is a major hub for potential customers in financial services, manufacturing, technology and energy sectors.
“With the launch of our Amsterdam data center, we’re continuing to answer the demand coming from our customers,” said Mitch Fonseca, Senior Vice President & General Manager for Data Center Services at Cyxtera. “This is an important expansion of our European footprint, and the new facility will be particularly important to businesses in the finance, manufacturing and technology sectors who often need colocation space in this market.”
As Cyxtera seeks to meet increased demand from customers around the world, the Netherlands provides the launchpad to grow and thrive in Europe. In fact, the company plans to extend its product offerings by launching new capabilities in the Netherlands.
