SmartDC Rotterdam is on the way to TIER-IV
The Netherlands - Tuesday, August 22, 2017

Because of the fast growth of the demand for datacenter services, at SmartDC we have been been investing in some major upgrades of our Rotterdam datacenter. The most important new assets are a second powerhouse, which raises the level of services at SmartDC Rotterdam to meet all TIER-IV requirements.

Just another day at the datacenter

Today, the technical team from Joulz, Schneider Electric and SmartDC staff commissioned the second RM6 and second 2MVA Trafo. The next step will be powering up the scalable Schneider UPS . 

At the same time two 700kVA backup power aggregates were delivered onsite by B&A Projects. Stulz is commission cooling for the new Suite 20, and the construction team is working on the new entrance.


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.

New suites

Suite 20 has almost been finished, this will be the thirteenth suite of the Rotterdam data center. With this new suite, which can house up to 48 racks, the data center will have the capacity to keep growing in 2017.

ISO 27001:2013 At the same time, we're investing in the datacenter security. Not only have we gained the ISO 27001:2013-certification, we are also installing fingerprint scanners on all suites, and on the main entrances. This way, our clients' technical staff will have 24/7 access to the datacenter, while keeping the security at the highest level.
