Colt DCS announces further expansion at its Paris Data Centre
Expansion of the first stage at the flagship data centre in Paris expected to complete in H1 2019.
Colt Data Centre Services (DCS) has announced this week it will be adding an additional 6.9 MW of capacity to its flagship data centre in Paris. The expansion is in direct response to demand from existing customers. Construction has already commenced and is due to be delivered in H1 2019. Once delivered, it will bring the total capacity built within a 24 month period at this data centre to 9.4MW.
In addition to this capacity, further expansion capacity is planned within the next 18 months that will see a further 12 MW of capacity added to the site, bringing the total data centre capacity to 23.9MW IT power.
Due to the successful take up (9.4MW) and planned investment in further capacity, Colt DCS’ market share will vastly increase, targeting a position in the top five providers in the market.
Paris has seen a total uptake of 51MW of capacity in Q2 this year, its most successful quarter in almost a decade and currently has the highest level of absorption in the FLAP markets.
“We are committed to providing our customers with carrier-neutral connectivity services on demand when and where they need them allowing our customers scalability in the locations they require. The ecosystem of connectivity solutions that we have built with the availability of carriers , cloud service providers and Internet exchanges in our facilities means that Les Ulis has become somewhat of a location of a choice for the international Cloud Service Providers who are looking for such hyperscale facilities in France.” Spang added.
The Paris South-West data centre provides multi-tenant colocation facilities, with state-of the-art mechanical and engineering equipment supporting the operational delivery facility. Due to the efficiency on the design, the annualised design PUE of the facility is <1.2.
