Greenhouse Datacenters, a colocation data center developer/operator from the Rotterdam/The Hague region in the Netherlands, has expanded its collaboration with DCspine by announcing that DCspine’s network Point-of-Presence (PoP) is now also available in Greenhouse Datacenters’ flagship facility. The network PoP enables colocation customers in Greenhouse DC 2 to make on-demand connections with more than 70 data centers in the Netherlands and Belgium, 30 of which are in the Amsterdam region.
DCspine is a software-defined data center interconnection platform developed by Eurofiber Group, a provider of telecommunications and network infrastructure services in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany. This software-defined data center interconnection platform was launched in October 2017. It’s an innovation in which Eurofiber Group has invested millions of euros. Via the network platform users have the flexibility to purchase connectivity for a day, for example, or to scale network capacity up and down instantly if necessary.
The availability of the new network PoP in Greenhouse’s flagship data center, Greenhouse DC 2, means an extension of the existing collaboration between DCspine and Greenhouse. Shortly after the establishment of DCspine in 2017, a network PoP was already installed in another of Greenhouse’s data centers, in Greenhouse DC 1.
“Since its foundation in 2017, DCspine has proven itself as a stable and ambitious network partner in the Dutch market, with expansion into Belgium since the end of 2019,” said Guido Sip, Chief Commercial Officer of Greenhouse Datacenters. “There is a lot of interest from colocation customers for the on-demand data center interconnection possibilities offered by DCspine. This enables customers to realize scalable connectivity with data centers throughout the Netherlands and internationally in an easily accessible manner. The network PoP in Greenhouse DC 2 is an excellent addition to our connectivity portfolio. It offers customers a great deal of flexibility and also extensive possibilities for creating redundancy.”

“A strong networked system is important for colocation data centers, especially when it comes to enterprise customers and cloud service providers seeking maximum redundancy and flexibility for their IT infrastructures while pursuing cost efficiencies,” said Jan Michiel Berkel, Director of DCspine. “It’s great to notice that Greenhouse recognizes the value of DC-spine’s software-defined connectivity and functionality. Greenhouse is also one of the few data center providers available for co-locating IT infrastructures in the Hague/Rotterdam region, even though there’s a lot of activity here, also from international enterprises with their headquarters located in this area.”
“The network ecosystem within Greenhouse DC 1 and Greenhouse DC 2 is already very comprehensive,” said Guido Sip. “It fits the ‘Westland’ mentality of our organization however to provide colocation customers with a lot of value for money. As a region close to Rotterdam and The Hague, Westland is well-known for its greenhouses and worldwide exports of high-quality flowers and plants. DCspine adds enormous networking possibilities to the connectivity already available in our flagship data center here. DCspine enables us to easily connect customers from the Westland with data centers throughout the country. In addition, DCspine is an organization able to act quickly and flexible. Like us, they are practical-oriented and straightforward. This is also where we have a good match. It is something that suits the Westland character of Greenhouse. We are pleased that we can now offer DCspine in Greenhouse DC 2.”
