RETN Plans to Deploy a Point-of-Presence in Datacenter.com’s Amsterdam AMS1 Data Center

Amsterdam, the Netherlands, 24 May 2018 – RETN, a fast-growing international network service provider connecting 36 countries on 3 continents through 220+ network PoPs, has planned to add a new Point-of-Presence in Datacenter.com’s Amsterdam AMS1 facility – a colocation data center strategically located in the Amsterdam Southeast business district. RETN expects the strategic location of Datacenter.com AMS1 as well as its enterprise-grade and cloud-ready amenities to be an attractive colocation environment for international enterprises, cloud service providers (CSPs), and online gaming providers alike.

“Amsterdam is most important to RETN,” said Tony O’Sullivan, Chief Operating Officer (COO) at RETN, based in Hong Kong. “The Dutch capital is one of the largest Internet hubs in the world, attracting companies from a wide variety of business sectors who wish to increase their connectivity in a stable, business friendly regulatory environment. RETN is present in all major data centers in Amsterdam. This cooperation with Datacenter.com is a logical step, as it is strategically located at one of the best-connected areas in Europe in the Amsterdam Southeast business district and is distinguished by its unique and highly energy-efficient architecture. I have no doubt their facility will attract customers that will appreciate RETN’s unique capabilities capabilities to connect the West with the East. Likewise, RETN’s customers expect industry leading facilities such as Datacenter.com AMS1 to be on-net. We are extremely excited about the addition of this data center to our network.”

Part of a planned targeted global roll-out of large-scale colocation data centers, Datacenter.com’s Amsterdam facility features a unique Indirect Adiabatic Cooling setup with a calculated energy-efficient pPUE figure of 1.04 – now awarded with a Datacloud Europe nomination. Cloud-ready features include large cabinets (54U, 11kW+), as well as month-to-month flexible contracts. The modular cooling infrastructure in this facility is located directly under the cabinets with hot aisle setup, under the raised floor with a height of 4.7 meters. An expert jury will announce the winner of four data center architecture nominees at the Datacloud Europe 2018 event held in Monaco in June (www.datacloudcongress.com).

The announcement of RETN planning to deploy a network PoP in this 54,000 sq. ft. Amsterdam AMS1 colocation facility adds to Datacenter.com’s ability to meet high redundancy and high volume bandwidth needs set by cloud providers, enterprises, online gaming providers, and other customers with demanding network requirements.

“The RETN PoP will significantly expand our global connectivity ecosystem and network services offerings in Amsterdam, especially when it comes to our reach into Eastern Europe and Russia,” said Jochem Steman, CEO of Datacenter.com. “RETN has a heavy network coverage and data center footprint in these areas while they also have an extensive metro fiber network, with all major Eastern European and Western European cities being connected.”

With the launch of the TRANSKZ cable system in 2016, RETN started to provide connectivity into Asia (Hong Kong) across its own network. “Our network coverage is unique in the worldwide market,” added Mr. O’Sullivan. “RETN is the only European provider to deliver a fully owned high-speed terrestrial connectivity solution between Amsterdam and the Kazakhstan/China border, a solution that’s fully protected. For Datacenter.com customers it means that RETN can deliver them reliable, low latency IP Transit, Layer 1 and Layer 2 services from Amsterdam to Hong Kong, Seoul, Tokyo, and beyond in Asia.”

The announcement follows the news that Datacenter.com’s AMS1 data center got nominated by Datacloud Europe under the ‘Excellence in Data Centre Architecture and Design’ award category.
