Equinix Unveils New Digital Gateway, AM3 Science Park In Amsterdam

Equinix, Inc. (NASDAQ: EQIX), the global interconnection and data center company, today announced that its third International Business Exchange ( IBX ®) data center in Amsterdam, AM3 Science Park, is fully operational.

AM3 expands the Platform Equinix footprint in Europe, enabling customers to reach the entire continent from a single location. AM3 Science Park Amsterdam is situated in one of Europe’s most network-dense locations. It houses Internet exchanges such as AMS-IX and NL-ix and is able to reach 80 percent of Europe within 50 milliseconds. Inside the AM3 data center, customers can interconnect with companies that define the European digital economy: networks, Internet exchanges, content and cloud providers. AM3 Science Park Amsterdam offers them a new digital gateway to Europe.

The AM3 data center is one of Equinix’s most innovative and sustainable facilities. The facility uses Aquifer Thermal Energy Storage (ATES) in the ground instead of mechanical cooling, excess heat will be used to warm the buildings nearby. These and other sustainable technologies realize significant energy savings, allowing customers to reduce their CO2 footprint significantly.

“Green IT and energy efficiency are increasingly becoming decisive factors for organizations when choosing a data center. Environmental legislation is becoming more stringent and energy costs are rising, as is the importance that consumers and companies attach to sustainability,” commented Michiel Eielts, director, Equinix Netherlands. “Equinix is committed to building sustainable data centers throughout the world. We are particularly proud of AM3 for pushing the boundaries on new levels of innovation and sustainability.”

In a video message, Neelie Kroes, vice president of the European Commission and Commissioner for the European Digital Agenda, praised Equinix for its commitment to sustainability and its contribution to the economy during the opening:
