maincubes is expanding its network of highly available data centers: In addition to the data centers in Amsterdam and Frankfurt, the data center operator is planning a further data center in the Rhine-Main area, which will focus on sustainability in particular. Approximately 8,500 square meters of white space are to be built on five floors – with CO2-neutral operation and specific offers providing customers with a secure and climate-friendly home for their infrastructure. More and more companies are opting for colocation and are thus looking for a strategically central region such as the Rhine-Main area. Here, they benefit from direct access to the world’s largest internet hub, DE-CIX. With FRA02, maincubes continues its expansion course and at the same time sets an example for sustainable customer orientation.
Sustainability combined with individuality
The planned FRA02 data center is set to create new standards, particularly in terms of climate protection and customer requirements. With its state-of-the-art architecture, materials and technologies, maincubes offers 100% CO2-neutral operation and thus contributes significantly to more climate protection in the IT sector. The modular design of FRA02 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 can thus guarantee efficient cost distribution – in return, customers benefit from significant savings.
Future-proof technology for stable operation
In order to create a high-performance infrastructure, maincubes is currently planning to use state-of-the-art technology and room-specific cooling concepts with FRA02. The data center will achieve a PUE ratio of well below 1.3 and thus ensures a climate-friendly power efficiency that is considerably higher than the average for data centers. In addition, maincubes offers a multiple, redundant carrier connection for optimal connectivity at FRA02 and its other data centers. These factors, combined with the highest security requirements, the use of innovative technology and comprehensive certification according to ISO/IEC 27001:2013, guarantees customers a 100% SLA availability for FRA02.
Designing infrastructures for tomorrow
The expansion is to be implemented in several phases in order to ensure smooth operation and to provide the planned infrastructure with a high standard of quality. “We concentrate on further development. The aim is to establish a European data center network with a focus on sustainability and customer orientation – FRA02 takes an important step towards this future orientation,” says Oliver Menzel, CEO of maincubes. “Our customers value security and data protection highly, and we, as a German data center operator, comply with them 100 percent. Moreover, by building the secureexchange® platform, our customers can use IoT, security, connectivity and cloud services and benefit from our eco-system. Our success proves us right: Our existing customers are very satisfied and we are constantly gaining new clients.”
