“Amsterdam is one of Europe's most cloud-dense and highly connected cities, offering low-latency connectivity to the rest of the world. Equinix’s AM7 is a state-of-the-art data center and a key location in Europe,” said Michiel Eielts, managing director, The Netherlands, Equinix.

“We have worked to ensure it supports large numbers of networks, cloud and service providers, in a sustainable and energy-efficient way. AM7 is at the core of the Equinix Southeast campus, which forms an important hub in the international digital infrastructure that businesses need today.”

The $63 million dollar investment for this expansion takes Equinix’s total investment in its Amsterdam facilities to more than $1 billion.

“The expansion of AM7, a strategic hub location, should greatly support Dutch organizations as they continue in their digital transformation journeys, helping them thrive in the global digital economy during these challenging times,” said Eugene Bergen Henegouwen, President, EMEA, Equinix.

Equinix has been busy in 2021; the company has announced a number of hyperscale facilities in Europe and Asia; a new facility in Bordeaux, and expansions in Sydney, Helsinki, and Sao Paulo.
