AMSTERDAM, Sept. 14, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Interxion: A Digital Realty Company (NYSE: DLR) and a leading European provider of carrier- and cloud-neutral colocation data centre solutions, has completed the third phase of the expansion of its landmark data centre in Amsterdam, the Amsterdam Data Tower. The expansion provides 2.4 megawatts of additional capacity across four floors.
The Amsterdam Data Tower is a high-quality, carrier-neutral facility located within the Amsterdam Science Park at the heart of the digital economy and is home to an extensive connected data community of telecom carriers, cable providers and Internet Service Providers. The tower was officially opened in 2016 and the recent expansion provides additional runway for customer growth with the same high levels of network connectivity.
According to Digital Realty's recently published Data Gravity Index DGx™ – which measures the creation, aggregation and private exchange of enterprise data across 53 metros –Amsterdam has one of the highest data gravity intensity scores in the world, driven by thriving technology and financial services communities. The expected growth of data gravity intensity will open up new business opportunities for enterprises in Amsterdam, but will also pose new challenges in creating, sharing, and turning that data into real business value.
The expansion of the Amsterdam Data Tower will help provide capacity to address the challenges posed by data gravity, while the facility's high levels of connectivity will provide faster, simpler data exchange with partners and other centres of data, making it simpler and easier to do business. Amsterdam Data Tower customers will have access to leading connectivity providers, Internet Service Providers and large internet exchanges such as AMS-IX and NL-ix as well as the broader set of service providers available on PlatformDIGITAL®, Digital Realty's global data centre platform.
"The digital economy is rapidly reshaping all sectors, both public and private," said Michel van den Assem, Managing Director, Interxion Netherlands. "As a result, enterprises need to adopt a data-centric approach. Our presence and the expansion of the Amsterdam Data Tower aligns with the requirements of our customers, both locally and across the globe. By housing their critical infrastructure with us, customers benefit from access to a thriving data community with robust network density and rich interconnectivity to strategic European and global locations."
