Telehouse opens Frankfurt data centre

Telehouse America has announced the opening of Telehouse Frankfurt, a Tier 3 data centre.

The launch of the facility has been made possible by Telehouse’s acquisition of collocation and housing provider, Databurg GmbH.

The Frankfurt data centre offers 220,000 square feet of collocation space and is carrier neutral with over 22 carriers/ISPs. The facility uses an N+1 redundant air conditioning and cooling system and operates battery backup systems and diesel generators in case of power failure. Telehouse also says that there is 24/7 security, monitoring and surveillance.

The facility will offer access to what the company claims is the second largest internet exchange, DE-CIX, with 404 ISP’s and carriers from over 45 countries. It also has a direct connection to the Frankfurt glass fibre ring.

“Expansion into Germany proves that we are committed to fulfilling the needs of our international clients by establishing a reliable data centre hub right in the heart of the financial centre in continental Europe,” said Satoshi Adachi, VP of Telehouse America.

Frankfurt is one of Europe’s largest financial centres with a high concentration of IT companies. This latest data centre is Telehouse’s 43rd and the first opened in 2012.
