euNetworks connects DARZ data centre to dark fibre

euNetworks has delivered dark fibre connecting to a data centre in Darmstadt, 30km outside of Frankfurt, Germany.

The latest fibre connection is said to offer both diversity and scalable bandwidth options for companies looking to take services in the facility.

As a former bank vault and nuclear shelter, the DARZ data centre is a natural site for the financial services community to use as their back up and disaster recovery (BCDR) location, said the company.

The facility, which covers 8,000 square metres gross floor space, is said to offer customers a higher security proposition than most facilities. Its foundations include 1-metre thick reinforced concrete walls as well as an underground storage facility for hard drives and magnetic tapes. 

“euNetworks has delivered the shortest fibre route to the site, with diversity and resiliency. It is an impressive facility and is now part of our Frankfurt DC Connect solution,” said Kevin Dean, chief marketing officer of euNetworks.

“That means customers have access to fast and reliable bandwidth to this site and also between DARZ and other on-net data centres and exchanges in Frankfurt and further afield on our footprint. Our status as an AWS direct connect partner also enables access to further cloud based service options.”
