EdgeConneX®, the pioneer in Edge data centre® development, has broken ground on a new edge data centre facility in the Sant Boi de Llobregat region of Spain, located just 15 km from Barcelona city centre. The 7,600 m2, 8 MW N+1, carrier-neutral data centre facility will provide businesses in the region with essential, local, cloud and content access as well as highly secure server colocation in a carbon neutral facility employing renewable energy strategies.
“We are continuing our push to bring the Edge closer to those that need it most, where they need it most. It’s a client centric philosophy that runs companywide and takes us to places like Barcelona where we, alongside our technology partners and community leaders, can have an immediate and positive impact on overall business opportunity and edge market growth,” states Dick Theunissen, Managing Director, EMEA, at EdgeConneX.
The EdgeConneX Barcelona multi-tenant data centre is expected to be ready for service in Q4 2021 with a global IT services provider and systems integrator as its first anchor tenant. The facility will host essential customer applications as well as provide critical local, cloud and content access services, including hybrid and multi-cloud options.
