The opening of the facility follows the company’s announcement of the acquisition of Datacenter Nedzone at the end of 2019.

Data centre operator Dataplace has opened a sixth data centre facility in Hoofddorp, a town in the Netherlands.

The data centre is designed for full 2N configuration and has proven technologies in the field of continuity, security and sustainability, according to the company.

The facility has been operational since the beginning of this month, and has a total floor area of around 4,500 m2 and a net data centre floor area of 2,000 m2.

“As business activity in the Amsterdam metropolitan area continues to grow rapidly, demand for colocation services is also increasing,” said Gerben van der Veen, Managing Director of Dataplace.

“We are delighted that we can now provide data centre solutions in the region from this brand-new location.

“Dataplace is a leading national player, and the opening of our sixth data centre at this location allows us also to raise our international profile, while retaining our regional personality and personal approach as well as a strong customer focus.”

Dataplace was formed in 2010 and has been part of the Eurofiber Group since 2016, and provides data centre services from carrier-neutral data centres in the Rotterdam, Utrecht, Arnhem and Brabant regions.

Jan Bonke, Manager Operations of Dataplace said, “We relied on our own expertise and experience to design the technical systems and installations entirely in house.

“Our engineers created a 2N solution that is configured for a fully separated A & B power supply. This design fully meets the needs and demands that the market currently places on a hypermodern data centre.”

Alex Goldblum, CEO of Eurofiber said that the expansion will give Eurofiber a national cloud infrastructure in the Netherlands.

“It represents another significant milestone for Dataplace, and by extension for Eurofiber, in line with our growth ambition in Europe,” he added.

“As part of this strategy we also recently acquired Eura DC, which operates two data centres in France. Our digital infrastructure currently consists of eight hypermodern data centres and 36,000 kilometres of installed fibre-optic cable.”
