Renovations at SmartDC Rotterdam
The Netherlands - Monday, April 3, 2017

To make everyone feel more welcome and SmartDC is investing in a major overhaul of the entrance. SmartDC's director Richard Boogaard explains: ‘We have been investing millions in our technical infrastructure and that has always been and will be our focus. However and mainly because of the growth of the datacenter we feel that more in house services can create a better and more pleasant working environment for the engineers that visit the datacenter a lot.’

New entrance
The main entrance of the datacenter will be getting a significant upgrade. The main entrance of the data center will be moved to the front of the building, and will have extra security measures like a turnstile entrance with fingerprint readers, and a two-door entrance for trolleys.

An reception area will be created where our support employee Dennis Mark will have his office, as well as meeting rooms and work stations and a coffee corner for engineers. On our Facebook page you can see the first artist's impressions of the new entrance. 

As the largest datacenter operator in the region SmartDC has found local contractors that have started the works a few weeks ago. No impact is to be expected and SmartDC expect to open the new entrance per December. 

Second powerhouse
In the second quarter of 2017 the construction of a second power house will start. This second power house will be a major upgrade of the power redundancy. After construction work has been completed, the data center will have a 2N +1 power setup. All suites will have two power feeds, the first feed by powerhouse 1, the second by powerhouse 2. Both power feeds will have separate transformers, N+1 UPS and N+1 generator setups.
