Maincubes, a colocation provider from Germany, has acquired the ‘Capronilaan 2 Amsterdam’ data center from Interoute. This data center location currently offers approximately 10,000 square feet in space and presents a lot of expansion potential for additional customers. At full capacity, the colocation data center can provide more than 45,000 square feet in space.
The ‘Capronilaan 2 Amsterdam’ data center was added to the Interoute data center portfolio in 2015, after the company had acquired Easynet. The Dutch data center has experienced personnel who will be completely integrated into the new operating company of maincubes. The colocation company would make “massive short-term investments” in order to create a better performing technical and operational infrastructure. Talks with key tenants have already begun, according to maincubes.
The area around Schiphol (Amsterdam) airport is one of the most sought-after locations for data centers 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.
“maincubes is well-known due to its innovative high-performance data center that is currently being built in the Rhine-Main area near Frankfurt,” said Oliver Menzel, Director of maincubes one. “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.”
