Lamda Hellix, a Digital Realty Company, one of the largest global providers of cloud and carrier-neutral data centre, colocation and interconnection solutions, has announced that it is expanding its presence in Athens, Greece, with the development of two new data centres.
The first facility, ATH3, is currently under construction and set to be operational by March 2023. When completed, it is expected to be the largest data centre in the country, able to support up to 6.8 Megawatts (MW) of capacity within its 8,600 sqm facility. The second facility, ATH4, is projected to deliver an additional 6.8 MW of capacity when operational, currently expected to be sometime in 2024.
Both ATH3 and ATH4 will be connected to Lamda Hellix’s existing ATH1 and ATH2 facilities, giving customers access to the densely populated, rapidly growing connected data communities that have been established at these sites. Through PlatformDIGITAL, Digital Realty’s global data centre platform, customers will be able to connect to the businesses across Digital Realty’s global footprint of more than 300 data centres in 50 metros across 27 countries on six continents.
In conjunction with Digital Realty’s expanded presence in Crete, where a new data centre is being developed in Heraklion, ATH3 and ATH4 will form part of Digital Realty’s broader vision to strengthen its Mediterranean presence, as well as Greece’s position as a key strategic gateway to Eastern Europe and North Africa.Click below to share this article
