maincubes, a Frankfurt-based data center operator, has gained digital infrastructure specialist…
Oliver Menzel appointed Managing Director of the new maincubes B.V. A company that was founded specially for the newly acquired Data center in the Netherlands. At the end of April 2016 maincubes acquired the “Capronilaan 2 Amsterdam” Data center at the strategically important location of Schiphol (Amsterdam airport). Oliver Menzel is an experienced and practice-oriented strategist for complex IT and Data center projects. His career began back during his studies, when he helped to develop the internet service provider ISB-Net in Braunschweig. In 1998 Oliver Menzel joined Frankfurt-based internet systems trader wusys as a systems consultant for key accounts, and in 2001 he took over the executive management. On top of this he is now Managing Director of the Frankfurt-based Data center operator maincubes one GmbH. In his additional new role as Managing Director of maincubes B.V., Oliver Menzel will expand the European presence of the Data center operator and ensure the technical and service-specific quality of all maincubes Data centers.
The Data center “Capronilaan 2 Amsterdam” is located close to one of the most important and high-performance internet exchanges in Europe, the carrier density and the international hub of the major airport are just some of the arguments behind the huge demand. The Dutch Data center boasts an experienced workforce, which is to be incorporated in its entirety into the new operating company. The location, which currently offers around 1,000 square metres of utilised Data center space, boasts huge potential for expansion for additional customers. At full capacity the Data center can provide more than 4,500 square metres, and maincubes is to make immediate, substantial investments in high-performance technical and operational infrastructure. Talks with large-scale tenants are already underway.
Alongside the rental of Data center space, maincubes offers services that go well beyond the classic offerings of co-location Data center operators. The maincubes Premium Services comprise, amongst other things, a very rapid reaction time, individual contract bundles and technical services such as DCIM, which combines technical components of the Data center operation and the customer’s IT for better resource utilisation.
