This award is a welcome proof that we took the right path which we have taken to reduce climate footprint as efficiently as possible. Energy efficiency is an important objective and commitment for Datacenter.com, not just an empty slogan. We use modular components with an adaptive control mode and we constantly monitor and measure the energy efficiency (PUE) of the data center. Improving our data center activities is necessary to create real sustainability and operational excellence”.

Opened in 2017, Award-winning data center Datacenter.com AMS, designed for providing colocation for finance, media, cloud, telco and service providers, is the most energy-efficient data center in Amsterdam. The data center location offers 5.000 square meter of white space in Amsterdam South East, one of Europe’s most network-dense locations, with a 50 millisecond reach to 80% of Europe.
