e-shelter, a subsidiary of NTT Communications (NTT Com) and one of the leading data centre providers in Europe, has completed phase 1 of its Frankfurt 4 data centre.

The Frankfurt 4 campus, which is the 12th operational data centre location in the e-shelter portfolio, offers 24,000 sq m and 80MW of premium data centre capacity across five facilities to support the growth of cloud and hybrid enterprise-IT in the Frankfurt region and support high density requirements.

“Phase 1 of Frankfurt 4 was built in less than 12 months with significant capacity being rented to customers in advance of the opening,” said Rupprecht Rittweger, CEO of e-shelter.

The latest expansion further strengthens e-shelter's market leading position in Frankfurt which is one of the fastest growing data centre hotspots in Europe. The Hattersheim campus is located approximately 10km linear distance from the existing e-shelter sites, Frankfurt 1 and Frankfurt 3 and therefore enables customers to seamlessly grow in the region and split deployments over multiple data centre campuses to maximise redundancy and reliability.

Rittweger added: “Frankfurt 4 strengthens our position as market leader leveraging a total capacity of more than 400MVA in Europe with more than 300MVA available in the Frankfurt region."

The new site offers carrier-neutral colocation services, is connected to e-shelter's e-connect platform and provides access to multiple carriers and major cloud providers as well as to the world's largest internet exchange DE-CIX.

Frankfurt 4 is part of the powerful and scalable NTT Com's global data centre network and connectivity ecosystem. Some other present e-shelter key expansion projects include developments in Amsterdam, Berlin, London and Madrid.
