December 10, 2018 | Dataplace Amsterdam

Dataplace's growth establishes it as a national player of international stature

Alblasserdam, 10 December 2018: Dataplace, the Netherlands' leading carrier-neutral and regional datacenter operator, plans to build a Tier III datacenter in Hoofddorp. The new datacenter will be built for full 2N configuration and will showcase state-of-the-art technologies. This fifth datacenter location enables Dataplace to strengthen its position in the regional, national as well as international datacenter market.​

Dataplace already offers excellent regional coverage in the Netherlands through its four geographically dispersed Tier III datacenters. As these datacenters are linked through multiple fiber-optic rings, Dataplace provides national coverage which is ideally suited to twin datacenter solutions, for example. The addition of a fifth datacenter location in the Amsterdam region makes Dataplace an attractive partner for foreign businesses seeking a network spanning the entire Netherlands. This expansion sees Dataplace anticipate future technological developments, including 5G and IoT, which highlight the importance of having a datacenter close to users.

Gerben van der Veen, Managing Director of Dataplace, explains further: ”Dataplace has grown from a regional player into a datacenter operator offering nationwide coverage in the Netherlands.By expanding our footprint with a fifth location in the Amsterdam region, we now offer a unique proposition to national and international customers seeking a network spanning the entire country. I believe that Dataplace is ready for the future, since the latest technological developments, such as 5G, cloud propositions and IoT, are set to drastically alter the datacenter landscape in the Netherlands."

The new datacenter will be positioned in the market under the name 'Dataplace Amsterdam' and will enable Dataplace to extend services to its ever growing circle of customers. Construction of the datacenter will start around January 2019, with the opening of Dataplace Amsterdam provisionally scheduled for Q3 2019. Dataplace will keep you updated on the progress of construction work through www.dataplace.com and social media.
