Maincubes is expanding its European network of data centres with a new data centre for the Frankfurt Rhine-Main area (FRA02), which will focus on sustainability. Approximately 8,500 square meters of colocation white space are to be built on five floors – with carbon-neutral operations, providing customers with a highly secure and climate-friendly facility for their ICT infrastructures. According to Maincubes, the data centre will achieve a PUE ratio of well below 1.3.
More and more companies are opting for colocation and are thus looking for a strategically central region such as the Frankfurt Rhine-Main area in Germany, stated maincubes. Here, they can benefit from direct access to the world’s largest Internet hub, DE-CIX.
The modular design of the FRA02 data centre offers customers maximum flexibility in the desired power and climate control. Moreover, the rooms are adapted to customer requirements, giving companies the opportunity to design their colocation environment according to their individual needs. Maincubes says that this enables the company to offer efficient cost allocation.
In addition, Maincubes offers a multiple, redundant carrier connection for optimal connectivity at FRA02 and its other data centres in Frankfurt and Amsterdam. These factors, combined with the high security, the use of innovative technology and comprehensive certification according to ISO/IEC 27001:2013, offers customers a 100% SLA availability for FRA02.
The expansion is to be implemented in several phases in order to ensure smooth operation.
