Dutch data center operator Dataplace has opened its 6th colocation data center in the Netherlands. The brand-new data center is fully 2N built and equipped with the latest techniques in terms of continuity, security and sustainability. The new colocation data center in Hoofddorp, near Amsterdam, has been fully operational since May 1 this year.

With a building area of approximately 4,500m2 and a net colocation space of 2,000m2, Dataplace is aiming its colocation services at both national and international organizations.

“As business activity in the Amsterdam metropolitan area continues to grow rapidly, demand for colocation services is also increasing,” said Gerben van der Veen, Managing Director of Dataplace. “We are delighted that we can now provide datacenter solutions in the region from this brand-new location. Dataplace is a leading national player, and the opening of our sixth datacenter at this location allows us also to raise our international profile, while retaining our regional personality and personal approach as well as a strong customer focus.”

“The opening of our sixth datacenter at this location allows us also to raise our international profile,” said Gerben van der Veen, Managing Director of Dataplace.

“We developed the design of the technical installations in-house, based on our own expertise and experience,” said Jan Bonke, Manager Operations at Dataplace. “Our engineers came up with a 2N solution that offers a completely separate A & B power supply. This design is fully in line with the wishes and needs that the market currently demands of a hypermodern data center.”

The data center opening in Amsterdam follows the news of Dataplace acquiring datacenter Nedzone, a colocation facility located in Steenbergen, the Netherlands. This data center would play an important regional role in the provisioning of data center services in the southern region of the Netherlands.

Dataplace was founded in 2010 and has been part of the Eurofiber Group since 2016. The colocation company has achieved ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 27001, ISO 50001, NEN 7510 certification as well as an ISAE-3402 type II declaration.

“This expansion gives Eurofiber a national cloud infrastructure in the Netherlands, providing a perfect platform for national and international parties alike,” said Alex Goldblum, CEO of Eurofiber. “It represents another significant milestone for Dataplace, and by extension for Eurofiber, in line with our growth ambition in Europe. As part of this strategy we also recently acquired Eura DC, which operates two datacenters in France. Our digital infrastructure currently consists of eight hypermodern datacenters and 36,000 kilometers of installed fiberoptic cable.”
