CyrusOne to expand Frankfurt capacity

CyrusOne has purchased land in Hanau, East of Frankfurt, for the construction of a state-of-the-art data center facility with incoming power of 90MW and a critical power capacity of 63MW. This will be its fifth data center in Europe’s digital capital.

Upon completion, Frankfurt V will deliver 18,000 sq m of world class technical space within two separate three-story buildings, each with a critical power capacity of 31.5MW. The facility will be built with a low PUE through the use of a closed loop water cooling system and other sustainable specifications to reduce water usage and impact on the local ecology over the lifecycle of the data center. The earliest phase of construction is planned for Q2 2023 with the first phase of 9MW of capacity or more delivered Q3 2024.

“Take-up in capacity by hyperscalers continues to drive significant demand for data center needs across Europe, resulting in near record levels of construction pipeline, particularly in Frankfurt,” said Matt Pullen, EVP and Managing Director Europe, CyrusOne. “CyrusOne has enjoyed remarkable success in the region and a fifth site in Frankfurt signals our experience in this market and our capability to consistently deliver mission critical capacity and capabilities that our customers have come to depend on.”

CyrusOne operates more than 50 high-performance data centers worldwide to provide customers with the flexibility and scale to match their specific IT growth needs. The company’s European portfolio accounts for nearly 218 MW across Frankfurt, London, Amsterdam, Paris and Dublin, inclusive of operating data centers and active developments.

When Barnsley Council first opened a bid in order to migrate their SAP landscape to the cloud, the tenders received did not offer an economically viable outcome. However, a non-negotiable deadline (the sale of its current premises and an outdated on-premise functionality) meant that a solution was required sooner rather than later.
