After successfully completing a $200 million credit facility earlier this month and acquiring UK-headquartered 5NINES Global Holdings, data center operator ServerFarm has now commissioned its acquired data center in Amsterdam. ServerFarm has renamed the 194,000 sq. ft facility into ‘SF AMS1.’
The ‘SF AMS1’ data center would be home to a number of global enterprises. According to ServerFarm, the facility is highly connected with over 100,000 square feet of available shell space “ideal for cloud, low latency and edge environments.”
ServerFarm’s new Amsterdam data center “sits at a prime location inside the A10 and less than 4 km from the city center, with access to a dozen carriers and multiple diverse fiber entry points.” This further expands ServerFarm’s portfolio of owned and managed assets in over 75 locations across more than 30 countries. Another major location for ServerFarm in Europe is SF LON1 in Feltham, London, a data center also being added to the ServerFarm portfolio through the 5NINES acquisition.

“We’re thrilled to offer our clients fast, convenient entry into one of the world’s most critical data center hubs, which has become a tricky area to tap into due to current market limitations,” said Avner Papouchado, CEO of ServerFarm. In July, Amsterdam and Haarlemmermeer called a moratorium on new data center builds, according to Bloomberg. “We’re quickly expanding our portfolio to meet demand following our recent $200 million recapitalization, and Amsterdam was the perfect location to do so,” added Mr. Papouchado. “We’re excited to deliver our unique business model to a new region, allowing more service providers and enterprises to move away from burdensome physical infrastructure management while optimizing their IT operations.”
ServerFarm’s InCommand Services would offer a range of fully managed facility and IT infrastructure management solutions, as well as real-time access to data center analytics. With over 20MW of IT capacity and “highly efficient” mechanical and electrical systems, the data center is ISO 27001, PCI DSS and SOC 2 (Type 1 & 2) compliant.
