Plan for every second

The Campus Frankfurt 1 data center is the main site of e-shelter, which has a total of around 60,000 sqm of data center and technical space. This makes the e-shelter Campus Europe’s largest individual data center site. The almost 54,000 sqm site, which is owned by e-shelter, offers space for five free-standing buildings which have been constructed and equipped especially for use as data centers. The latest buildings, Component F and G will be opened in 2016. Due to its size, there is always enough capacity to expand in the Campus, which also houses an office building and the e-shelter event center. Particularly noteworthy is the direct fibre optic connection to the e-shelter Frankfurt 3 data center in Rüsselsheim, whereby a dual hall concept is possible.
