The data centre provider has also announced the deployment of multiple dedicated dark fibre rings connecting its first, soon to open flagship data centre in Amsterdam to virtually all colocation data centres in the Amsterdam metropolitan region. AMS1 is a 137,778 sq ft facility being built with scale in mind and modularity as a key component.

“We work with the world’s top carriers as well as local metro providers to unlock dark fibre options and meet bandwidth requirements for our customers,” said Jochem Steman, CEO of Datacenter.com.

“Relined is the first carrier to open a PoP in AMS1, connecting the new facility to all other data centres in the Amsterdam metropolitan area and beyond. As a Dutch provider of reliable fibre infrastructure across the Netherlands, Relined is an ideal partner to start with, to interconnect our new facility with other data centres in the region.”

AMS1 features a highly energy-efficient data centre design, which has an energy-efficient pPUE of 1.04, and the two meet-me-rooms (MMRs) present in the facility provides customers with highly redundant connectivity options.
