Datacenter One has opened a new data centre – HAM1 – in Ahrensburg, northeast of Hamburg.
Once fully operational, HAM1 will provide a capacity of up to 20 MW. The facility utilises modular construction and will run on 100% renewable energy, with 2N power supply to each individual rack and decentralised cooling for each data centre room.
DC1 was acquired by AtlasEdge in February 2023, with HAM1 being the first data centre opened since the acquisition. AtlasEdge already has an existing carrier neutral data centre in Hamburg.
“We are witnessing incredible demand in northern Germany for highly available, certified, and future-proof data centre space,” said Wolfgang Kaufmann, CEO, Datacenter One.
“This new facility not only enables us to expand our offering for our customers in northern Germany by including dual-site products, but also takes our total number of sites in the country to seven. With AtlasEdge’s support, we expect to grow this presence further, and we have other new sites currently under development, with the next one to be built in Stuttgart.”
Giuliano Di Vitantonio, CEO, AtlasEdge, added, “This is a best-in-class facility which meets rising demand for ready-to-sell capacity in and around Hamburg.
“Its exceptional design and strong sustainability credentials, alongside its highly strategic location, draws on the combined expertise of both the Datacenter One and wider AtlasEdge teams. We have long identified Germany as a market characterised by exceptionally strong customer demand across multiple metros, and this new site consolidates our presence in Europe’s largest digital economy.”
