EdgeConneX is to enter to Belgian market with a new-build campus in Ternat, less than 15km from downtown Brussels.

Due to be ready for service in early Q1 of 2023, the new market represents the seventh EMEA market and 40th global market that EdgeConneX has a presence in.

The first greenfield data centre build in the new campus will consist of 4 data halls that can support over 20MW of multi-tenant capacity for hyperscale cloud customers and other service providers.

“Our legacy is to quickly and successfully deliver data center infrastructure anywhere our customers require,” said Dick Theunissen, MD for EMEA of EdgeConneX.

“As we continue to expand both our Edge platform and hyperscale campuses globally, our data center to be built in Brussels will give us capabilities to meet our customers’ requirements for hyperlocal and hyperscale data center capacity in the vital and growing Benelux region,” Theunissen continued.   

Although the year isn't over yet, this latest news rounds off a whirlwind 2021 for EdgeConneX. The firm has added 20MW across six of its US markets, namely Seattle, Portland, Phoenix, Miami, Detroit and Chicago. It also broke ground on its new Barcelona facility, the 8MW edge data centre in the Sant Boi de Llobregat region and formed a JV with Adani Group in India, creating AdaniConneX.

On the ownership front, not only does EdgeConneX now have a new owner, but it August it agreed to acquire the Israel-based Global Data Center.
