PENTA INFRA ACQUIRES DATACENTER IN DÜSSELDORF
Amsterdam, 18 March 2020 – Penta Infra acquired a high quality and well-connected datacenter facility in Düsseldorf. The site has a current capacity of 2 megawatt and has an upgrade potential to 10 megawatt. The seller, a top-tier managed services provider, signed a long-term service contract with Penta Infra for continued use of the datacenter capacity. The remaining capacity will be made available to the market. The acquisition of Penta Infra’s fifth datacenter in Germany perfectly fits its strategy in becoming a key player in the European hub and edge markets. Penta Infra expects strong growth in the datacenter edge markets and is well positioned as agile and independent player.
Alex Bakker, Partner and Founder at Penta Infra:
“We are excited to be teaming up with such a high-quality managed service provider and proud of their confidence in Penta Infra to run this mission critical facility. The transaction improves the financial and operational flexibility for our customer, while maintaining their high standards through our DCaaS offering. The facility has significant on-site expansion options which we look forward to utilize for our customers. For Penta Infra this acquisition perfectly fits our portfolio and service offering in Germany, and adds another site to our existing edge facilities in Berlin, Köln and Leipzig.”
