e-shelter opens fourth data center campus in Frankfurt
Frankfurt 4 Data Center offers 24,000 sqm and 80 MW of premium data center capacity to
support the growth of cloud and hybrid enterprise-IT in the Frankfurt region
Frankfurt – June 27, 2019: NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com), the
ICT solutions and international communications business within the NTT Group
(TYO: 9432), today announced the completion of phase 1 of its Frankfurt 4 Data
Center through e-shelter, a subsidiary of NTT Com and one of the leading data
center providers in Europe. Frankfurt 4 is the 12th operational data center location
in the e-shelter portfolio.
Frankfurt 4 is located in Hattersheim in the south-west of the city. Once fully built
out, the new campus features 24,000 sqm of IT space and 80 MW of IT load across
five data center buildings, supporting high density requirements.
The latest expansion further strengthens e-shelter’s market leading position in
Frankfurt which is one of the fastest growing data center hotspots in Europe. The
Hattersheim campus is located approximately 10 km linear distance from the
existing e-shelter sites, Frankfurt 1 and Frankfurt 3 and therefore enables customers
to seamlessly grow in the region and split deployments over multiple data center
campuses to maximize redundancy and reliability.
The new site offers carrier-neutral colocation services, is connected to e-shelter's
e-connect platform and provides access to multiple carriers and major cloud
providers as well as to the world's largest internet exchange DE-CIX. Frankfurt 4
customers will have access to the e-shelter innovation lab, which allows customers
and partners to test drive and validate cutting edge technology solutions and IT
deployments in a live data center environment.
Rupprecht Rittweger, CEO of e-shelter commented today’s opening: “Phase 1 of
Frankfurt 4 was built in less than 12 months with significant capacity being rented to
customers in advance of the opening. Frankfurt 4 strengthens our position as market
leader leveraging a total capacity of more than 400 MVA in Europe with more than
300 MVA available in the Frankfurt region.”
Frankfurt 4 is part of the powerful and scalable NTT Com’s global data center
network and connectivity ecosystem. Besides Frankfurt 4, e-shelter’s current key
expansion projects include developments in Amsterdam, Berlin, London and Madrid.
