RTB House deploys OCP infrastructure in maincubes’ AMS01 data center with Circle B
Global AdTech/MarTech company RTB House operates four data hubs to cover the world with its deep learning powered ad buying engine. It has two data center locations in the U.S., one in Asia and one in Europe. maincubes’ AMS01 colocation data center in Amsterdam Schiphol-Rijk has been selected for RTB House’s European data hub and its retargeting technology in the European market.
OCP Solutions Provider Circle B, a service provider specializing in Open Compute Project (OCP) infrastructures and part of the Taurus Group, is now managing the OCP-infrastructure for RTB House at this location.
RTB House was looking for a carrier-neutral data center in the Amsterdam area with a highly flexible approach towards the innovative and high-scaling needs for their global AdTech solution. It also required a European OCP Solution Provider to realize the setup and manage their OCP infrastructure reliably and efficiently. maincubes has offered RTB House a dedicated OCP-enabled data center hall in its Amsterdam AMS01 facility in Amsterdam Schiphol-Rijk. The colocation space is fully adapted to RTB-House’s custom OCP technology requirements. Initially, Circle B offered RTB House remote access to the European OCP Experience Center located in maincubes’ AMS01 data center. It allowed the AdTech/MarTech company to do some testing with their workloads. Now, RTB House has chosen to move slowly towards OCP hardware, as it offers them much higher efficiency and lower operating costs compared to other white boxes. Circle B has successfully finished the setup of the equipment while it is also responsible for managing it on behalf of RTB House.
CDN77 a 14+Tbps Content Delivery Network, with 35 PoPs in strategic IX locations around the globe, has selected European data center operator maincubes as its colocation partner for establishing a Point-of-Presence in Frankfurt, Germany. maincubes is able to provide CDN77 with 100% uptime guarantees, sufficient scaling options as well as individual support.
CDN77 used to house its Frankfurt PoP with one of the world’s largest data center operators, but CDN77 was searching for an individual approach and reliable onsite support. “We were lacking much needed flexibility and personal approach with our previous colocation provider in Frankfurt,” said Zdenek Cendra, founder and CEO of CDN77. “Even with our most urgent requests we sometimes had to wait for more than 24 hours to get a response. Their latest outage with downtime of more than 6 hours, and inability to communicate in real-time with us was the last straw. Difficulties like these were negatively impacting our business operations and customer satisfaction.”
The CDN PoP now being established in maincubes’ FRA01 data center in Frankfurt, Germany, encompasses multiple racks filled with server and network equipment. This PoP is one of CDN77’s 35 CDN PoPs globally. According to CDN77, the company’s Frankfurt PoP is one of its most important network nodes in Europe and also a growing one. CDN77 expects its number of racks deployed in maincubes FRA01 to triple in 2020.
