Zenium Technology Partners announced in late September that the acquisition of a new, purpose-built Frankfurt data center was complete.
The facility, known as Zenium Frankfurt One, was purchased from Imtech and is conveniently located near both the airport and the city center to provide clients with easy access to the surrounding area. Frankfurt is quickly becoming one of the biggest and most active data center markets in Europe, and customer need is increasing.
"In response to demand from our global customer base, this acquisition enables us to immediately bring new space to market in one of the most important European data center locations," said Zenium CEO Franek Sodzawiczny. "Combining energy efficiency and the scope for scalability, Frankfurt One will allow us to introduce our innovative approach to high quality data center provision to this vibrant and growing market from the outset."
The carrier-neutral German data center is the second largest facility in Zenium's portfolio, comprising 54,000 square feet of live data center space. The complex, which was built in 2012, is served by a number of international telecom providers and offers a large scope for expansion. The highly secure campus surrounding the Frankfurt data center will ultimately be able to provide more than 100,000 square feet across two additional buildings.
Data center sustainability was at the forefront of the construction of Frankfurt One and the facility will run with a PUE rating of 1.3 when working at full capacity. The German data center also offers one of the most resilient power supplies available, as it is served by 110?kV diverse feeds.
The Frankfurt data center will be operated by an in house team of Zenium specialists and is already partially occupied by a global telecommunications and cloud services provider. The acquisition of Frankfurt One highlights Zenium's eagerness to invest in both established and emerging markets, as the facility is located at the crossroads of each.
