Our Rotterdam data center is one of the largest in the region, measuring over 37,000 sq. ft. Housed in the historic Van Nelle Factory, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it’s the only data center in the Netherlands connected to the industrial 23 kV power grid, making it less prone to power outages.
Powered by renewable energy and connected to the world with over 20+ carriers, internet exchanges, and direct cloud connections, our data center is fully independent from Amsterdam in case of network overload and is the central point in your IT infrastructure strategy.
As a global company, Smartdc has a responsibility to operate sustainably, providing a better world for future generations. As a part of the Ubisoft family, Smartdc and our sister company, i3D.net, have committed to becoming carbon-neutral by 2030 and carbon-negative by 2050.
Today, Smartdc operates on 100% renewable energy sources, and for the near future, we are investigating innovative solutions to recycle waste heat and become more energy efficient.
We’ve built our data center to be modular, creating autonomous mini data centers with their own controlled environment, including power, cooling, fire prevention systems, and security. With its modular concept, our Rotterdam data center offers private facilities from 16 racks and up.
Smartdc Rotterdam is the only data center in South Holland connected to the 23 kV network. This industrial network was built for the port of Rotterdam and is significantly less prone to outages than the ‘regular’ 10 kV network powering Rotterdam homes and offices.
The power network within the data center has been built entirely redundant, with all possible bottlenecks having a backup solution. With this setup, the data center meets all requirements for a TIER-III certification.
Smartdc Rotterdam houses points-of-presence and direct connections to 20+ carriers, transit companies, and internet exchanges.
Thanks to our extensive connectivity, the data center operates independently from internet exchanges and networks in Amsterdam, so in case of traffic overload or failure there, your data is still online and available.
With an on-site technical support team, our experts can assist you with your equipment for help or maintenance within minutes thanks to our Remote Hands service.
The expert team can also advise you about the best technical solutions for your network and answer your questions regarding your IT infrastructure strategy.
Smartdc is a carrier-neutral data center. With its strategic positioning, an in-house Amsterdam Internet Exchange (AMS-IX) Point-of-Presence, over 20 carriers, and direct cloud connections, it has become the largest connectivity hub outside of Amsterdam. We operate independently from Amsterdam internet exchanges and networks, so in case of network overload or failure there, our data centers still stay online.
