EdgeConneX® Expands European Footprint with Acquisition of Edge Data Center in Warsaw Poland

Del

EdgeConneX ®, specializing in global data center solutions at the edge of the network, today announces the acquisition of the Linxdatacenter facility in Warsaw, Poland. EdgeConneX’s broad customer base of network, content and cloud service providers are looking for a better solution to support their localized and latency sensitive requirements for Central and Eastern Europe. In addition, demand specifically in Poland is being driven by increased adoption of hybrid cloud, data regulations and the ability to be the gateway into neighboring countries. In particular, experts predict Warsaw is poised to become one of Europe’s digital heavyweights, and the acquisition of Linxdatacenter Warsaw, a well-established carrier neutral data center located in the heart of Warsaw, enables customers to be part of a highly connected digital ecosystem.

The newly acquired EdgeConneX facility offers the flexibility to support deployments ranging from single racks to large custom cages or pods and has the capability to scale to support future capacity expansion requirements. Via a diverse fiber path, customers can connect to the neighboring LIM-Building ecosystem.

“We are very excited to announce our expansion into Warsaw and to work with Linxdatacenter on a smooth transition to continue the high customer service levels already in place,” comments Dick Theunissen, Managing Director, EMEA, EdgeConneX. “As we continue to expand globally, we are prepared to meet the diverse needs of our customers to enable them to deliver the fastest and most reliable cloud, content, network and other services to their customers.”

“We are pleased that our Warsaw Data Center clients will be served in the future by EdgeConneX,” comments Heiko H. Koop, Chief Executive Officer of Linxdatacenter. “We look forward to transitioning our Warsaw Data Center and the local support team, which will help ensure the seamless integration of customers into the EdgeConneX business. The divestment of the Warsaw Data Center suits our 2020 business strategy whereby we focus on our cloud business and maintain our Russian assets.”

EdgeConneX’s market expansion in Europe will continue to be selective, based on specific customer demand, that drives the Company to particular markets. EdgeConneX collaborates with its customers to define and enable their solutions by identifying where their edge needs to be deployed or built, selecting optimal locations, designing premium facilities and then rapidly deploying infrastructure, while also solving for their scalable power and connectivity requirements. From 100kws to 100MW’s, EdgeConneX can build any sized facility, in any market globally, to support any deployment for its customers.
