Relined Fiber Network is connecting CyrusOne’s new data centre, Amsterdam I, to its dark fibre network in the Netherlands.

Relined has 30,000km of high-grade fibre optic infrastructure resulting in nationwide fine-meshed dark fibre networks in both the Netherlands and Germany.

While global data centre real estate investment trust (REIT), CyrusOne, has a significant European portfolio totalling nearly 150MW of operational facilities and sites under development across Frankfurt, London, Amsterdam and Dublin.

As a major European data centre hub, Amsterdam I is critical to CyrusOne’s strategy to expand its colocation presence in Europe,” said Matt Pullen (pictured), executive vice president, managing director Europe at CyrusOne.

Our partnership with Relined Fiber Network reinforces CyrusOne’s commitment to providing agile and scalable high-capacity connectivity to enterprise customers worldwide, enabling them to extend their existing networks or expand into new markets.”

CyrusOne Amsterdam I is a purpose-built data centre campus offering cloud providers, systems integrators, and multinational corporations customised, secure, and resilient data centre solutions.

The facility will deliver close to 320,000 square feet of technical space offering 72MW of total power in two separate buildings, one three-storey building and another two-storey building.

Additionally, the data centre campus is part of the CATALIST European Green IT innovation project, which focuses on the construction of sustainable data centres.

Located at the Rottepolderplein node in Halfweg, a short distance from both Schiphol Airport and Amsterdam, Amsterdam I will be connected to Relined’s dark fibre network by two routes, offering low redundancy.

Relined has a dark fibre optic infrastructure in Amsterdam’s metro network, with fixed, attractive rates for data centre connections, high network standards, and delivery times of one to three weeks. CyrusOne Amsterdam I and many other carrier-neutral data centres are connected to this network.
