Growing demand for cloud services in Amsterdam
In a press statement, David Ruberg, Interxion’s Chief Executive Officer said: “The continued demand for carrier-neutral data centre space that Interxion is experiencing in Amsterdam is largely driven by cloud service providers looking to serve the developing European cloud market by utilising the international connectivity present in the Amsterdam area. AMS7 is being built in response to clearly defined specific customer demand that has resulted from our focus on acquiring magnetic applications and then working to develop the communities of interest around them.”
Building in phases
The new data centre will be built in six phases with the first one expected to be finished in the first quarter of 2014. Once all six phases are complete, the AMS7 data centre is expected to deliver approximately 7,300 square metres of equipped space and deliver more than 13 MW of customer available power.
