e-shelter adds Amsterdam data centre to its EU portfolio

03 Apr 2018

Adding to its list of European data centres, e-shelter has announced the development of a new facility in the Netherlands.

Part of the NTT Communications Group Company, e-shelter’s “Amsterdam 1 Data Center’ will be built out in four phases of 4,000 square metre IT space and will offer both wholesale and retail colocation services along with hybrid IT enterprise solutions.

e-shelter acquired the 40,000 square metre development site in Schiphol-Rijk with secured planning permission for 16,000 square metres of IT space across two buildings and construction of the facility now underway.

The first phase with an initial 6MW IT load is expected to be complete and ready for service to customers in early 2019.

The fully completed facility will be capable of delivering up to 39.6MW of IT load and will offer customers and partners flexible and scalable data centre services, carrier neutrality with multiple carrier and cloud connectivity options.

"Our business continues to thrive and grow, driven by continued demand from our key customer segments of Enterprise and hyperscale,” says e-shelter CEO and founder Rupprecht Rittweger.

“Our new markets expansion plan is largely based upon existing customer demand to deliver the e-shelter data centre services outside of our existing DACH market.”

Rittweger says the Netherlands is considered one of the most wired countries in the world, making it one of the most advanced markets for data centre operations in Europe and the perfect place for e-shelter and NTT Communication’s next data centre location.

"Amsterdam in particular has established itself as the data center city of the Netherlands and we look forward to bringing our premium data center colocation product to this market."

According to NTT Communications, the Netherlands is a key market for the company after already establishing other NTT Group Companies such as NTT Europe, Dimension Data and NTT Security.

e-Shelter currently has data centres in ten European locations, including Berlin, Frankfurt, Vienna and Zurich – and the company asserts there are further sites planned around the continent.
