maincubes takes over Dutch data centre
Data centre operator maincubes is increasing its international presence by taking a data centre in Amsterdam/Schiphol, Netherlands. maincubes and Interoute have just agreed on the purchase of the "Capronilaan 2 Amsterdam" data centre. The area around Schiphol (Amsterdam) airport is one of the most sought-after locations for data centres apart from London and Frankfurt.
The proximity to one of the most important and high-performance Internet hubs in Europe, the high concentration of carriers and the international connections of a major airport represent only some of the factors confirming high demand. The Dutch data centre has experienced personnel who will be completely integrated into the new operating company of maincubes. The location currently offers approximately 10,000 square feet in space for the data centre and presents a lot of expansion potential for additional customers. At full capacity, the data centre can provide more than 45,000 square feet in space. maincubes will make massive short-term investments in order to create a better performing technical and operational infrastructure. Talks with key tenants have already begun.
"maincubes is well-known due to its innovative high-performance data centre that is currently being built in the Rhine-Main area near Frankfurt. Planning and constructing a new generation of data centers is part of our strategy. maincubes is a company that follows an international strategy. In order to achieve our goals, we will take over existing data centers in addition to constructing new ones", explains Oliver Menzel, Director of maincubes one.
Apart from leasing data centre space, maincubes also offers services which it claims go beyond the traditional services of a co-location data centre operator. The maincubes premium services include very fast reaction times, individual contract bundles as well as technical services, such as DCIM, which combine technical components of the data centre operation with the IT of the customers in order to achieve optimised resource utilisation.
