Digital Realty plans to invest €150m in its Dublin-based data centres
18 November 2015
Digital Realty, a global provider of data centre solutions, is to invest €150 million in its data centre in west Dublin.
The plan is for the company to double the size of its 10,000-sq ft-facility at Profile Park, west Dublin.
The expansion will complete the first data centre facility at the Profile Park campus, still leaving green field space for future data centre builds.
Last year, Digital Realty announced that Profile Park would see investment of €150 million into the data centre campus, noting the entire facility could employ 50 to 120 workers during the construction phase.
“We are committed to further developing our business in Ireland, and today’s announcement is a testament to that,” said Gary Keogh, Digital Realty sales director (pictured with Jobs Minister Richard Bruton).
“Digital Realty is witnessing increased demand from organisations looking to host their data in Ireland and use it as a gateway for their operations in Europe and the Middle East. Ireland has become a key destination for companies looking to benefit from the latest infrastructure and knowledge economy that is rapidly developing within the country,” he added.
The data centre campus boasts high speed connectivity and network access to the US, UK and Europe. The campus is being developed in compliance with BREEAM standards and has secured supply agreements for power from 100 per cent renewable energy sources such as wind, solar and hydro.http://www.engineersjournal.ie/2015/11/18/digital-realty-plans-to-invest-e150m-in-its-dublin-based-data-centres/http://www.engineersjournal.ie/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/Digital-Realty.jpghttp://www.engineersjournal.ie/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/Digital-Realty-300x300.jpgNewsbig data,BREEAM,Dublin,jobs
