Etix In Joint Venture To Deliver New Edge Data Centre In Frankfurt
We all know Frankfurt is extremely busy, so it should therefore be no surprise to hear that four potential customers are already in the frame to move in, and take advantage of the burgeoning data demand.
Data centre operator Etix Everywhere is building a 15MVA facility in Offenbach, part of the Frankfurt Rhein-Main urban hotspot area. The first campus building represents an investment of €120m and will open by the third quarter of 2019.
To deliver the greenfield project, Etix is part of a joint venture consisting of EVO, an energy supply company, and Data Center Group (DCG), a data centre design, planning and certification office.
The first phase will consist of an 18,000 square metre building hosting over 3,000 racks at full capacity. The joint venture is already in “advanced negotiations” with four potential customers for the facility.
“This data centre will offer unique expansion capabilities at only a few hundred meters from the main IT hub of Frankfurt. Our clients will benefit from an ideal location with excellent connectivity,” said Marc Fröse, country manager for Germany at Etix Everywhere.
Tipping a hat to the edge data centre movement, which the company is a specialist in, he added: “The emergence of new tech trends makes us rethink the organisation and localisation of data centres in order to cover all needs.”
The project has been designed to host different types of customers, from large cloud service providers to enterprise customers.
DE-CIX, the German Internet Exchange, is less than 1 km from the new facility. More than 20 international and national telco carriers are immediately available on site, ensuring optimum connectivity services to customers for whom latency is key to operate real-time applications, said Etix.
It will be EN 50600 certified, the new European standard for data centres. Among the proposed options to customers, it will be a multi-tiering facility offering different redundancy levels within the same building. Customers will be able to choose their IT room based on the certifications they want to have. An overall PUE of 1.2 is promised.
