Vantage Data Centers has unveiled two new operational data centre campuses in Berlin and Warsaw.
Vantage has completed its first data centre at the 13-acre Berlin site, with plans for the campus to offer 32MW across two buildings once fully developed. The 12-acre, two-data centre Warsaw campus will offer 48MW IT capacity across 390,000 sqft.
The sites will provide cooling through outside air economisation using minimal water, with the Berlin facility partially powering its non-critical areas with solar energy. Waste heat will be repurposed and made available to the local community.
The Warsaw facility is Vantage’s first in Poland, while its site in Berlin is the company’s second in Germany – in addition to its operational Frankfurt campus. Another campus is set to open this autumn in Raunheim in the Frankfurt region. When fully built out, both sites will offer a combined capacity of 95MW.
The new campuses are part of Vantage’s US$2B investment into European expansion.
“I’m very happy that a campus with data centres has been built in the Bielany district. We need new technologies, and as a district office, we support this development,” said Grzegorz Pietruczuk, Mayor of Bielany, Warsaw. “It’s also worth mentioning that Vantage Data Centers is open to cooperating with the local community and supports many initiatives of our office since the beginning of their presence in the district.”
“Launching new facilities in Berlin and Warsaw creates much needed outlets for pent-up demand from companies desiring a local presence in these regions. We are thrilled to welcome customers to our latest data centres and look forward to continuing to serve their needs wherever they may be,” added Antoine Boniface, President of EMEA at Vantage Data Centers. “Vantage now offers options in key markets for companies looking to expand their digital footprint across the entirety of Europe and beyond.”
Having entered the EMEA as a new market in February 2020, Vantage now has operational campuses in Frankfurt, Zurich and Cardiff, in addition to Berlin and Warsaw.
