First phase of delivery expected to complete in H4 2020

Colt Data Centre Services (DCS) today announced the expansion of its presence in Germany with its new Frankfurt West data centre. The strategic decision to expand comes alongside demand in the region from cloud service providers, but also complements the company’s investment drive into new and existing markets, which recently included Tokyo and Mumbai.

Data center connectivity solutions

Frankfurt is one of Europe’s premier connectivity centres, second only to London as the continent’s most important data hub. With many global carriers terminating in Germany’s financial capital, Frankfurt boasts Europe’s largest single data cluster – bigger even than Inner London.

Power capacity available

Colt DCS’ West Frankfurt data centre will boast 16 data halls over 8,000sqm, each capable of delivering up to 1.75MW IT. The new facility will provide a significant power capacity of 25 MW, with the first phase of delivery expected Q4 2020. This capacity will enable Colt DCS to serve the largest international carriers and the huge volumes of data traffic that pass through Frankfurt – one of Europe’s “Big Four” interconnection hubs alongside London, Amsterdam and Paris.

Cloud service provider demands

Germany is experiencing strong and continued demand for new data centre capacity from cloud service providers that require large contiguous space. Colt DCS’ expansion means the company will be able to accommodate both large enterprises and major cloud providers with increased capacity and connectivity solutions.
