QTS Realty Trust, a leading provider of software-defined and mega scale data centre solutions, has announced that Tampnet, a global leader in providing high capacity, low latency connectivity to offshore installations, has established a point of presence in QTS’ carrier neutral Eemshaven data centre.
Tampnet’s unique network routes pass through eight countries, connecting 30 vital data centres in 12 European and US cities featuring high-speed networks across northern Europe. QTS’ Eemshaven customers can now access major metropolitan areas in Great Britain, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Germany and the United States. In addition to the existing on-net network providers, Tampnet brings new on-net locations and network flexibility.
“We are pleased to join QTS’ growing connectivity ecosystem serving northern Europe and points west,” said Cato Lammenes, Managing Director, Tampnet Carrier. “QTS Eemshaven customers now have a direct connection to the new COBRAcable (COpenhagen-BRussels-Amsterdam) subsea cable as well as Tampnet’s wholesale capacity, diverse fibre, and managed connectivity solutions serving millions of consumers.”
“Tampnet is an important network partner supporting QTS’ emphasis on expanding enterprise and hyperscale connectivity in the Netherlands, Europe and globally,” said Jan Daan (J.D.) Luycks, Managing Director, QTS. “Tampnet further expands QTS Eemshaven’s connectivity ecosystem and emergence as an important network access point delivering diverse connectivity and access to the world’s largest cloud providers, IP networks, fibre routes throughout Europe, redundant transport paths and subsea cables.”
In addition to the Eemshaven site, QTS owns and operates a data centre in Groningen that is currently one of the most interconnected data centres in the northern Netherlands, with more than 15 network providers and Internet exchanges on site including NL-IX and Eurofiber.
QTS’ Groningen and Eemshaven data centres encompass approximately 158,000 sqft of raised floor and 30+ gross megawatts of capacity within QTS’ global footprint. The facilities are strategically located adjacent to multiple hyperscale customer-owned data centres and in close proximity to several transatlantic fibre cable landings, thereby providing access to multiple markets within Europe and North America.Click below to share this article
