”The partnership offers customers of both data centres a broadened geographic coverage featuring flexibility, low-cost connectivity and 100% SLAs.“This alignment is a strong partnership,” added Oliver Mentzel, CEO of maincubes. " Their 60 Hudson Street data center in New York offers multi-floor colocation space. So does our data centre in Frankfurt, Germany. Their New York facility features an energy-efficient data center design and our data centres in Europe, in Frankfurt and Amsterdam, are also designed for the highest energy-efficiency rates. Besides that, our combined data centres at both sides of the pond feature the highest, enterprise-grade availability and security levels. Security, availability and reliability, but also energy-efficiency were actually key criteria for Daimler AG when selecting maincubes FRA01 for housing their IoT focused server infrastructure.”
