LCL invests €30 million in fifth data centre in Diegem

Data centre specialist, LCL, is to expand one of the region’s most connected data centres, LCL Brussels-North, to continue supporting the growing digital economy.

A total of €30 million will be invested.

The design of the new Tier III data centre has already been certified by the renowned Uptime Institute.

There are already four data centres in Diegem, and they will be joined in the next two years by a fifth data centre, and the design of the new data centre in Diegem was Tier III certified by Uptime Institute.

LCL Data Centers specifically chose its data centre complex in Diegem for the additional data centre space. LCL has consciously decided that the brand-new data centre will not be fully equipped at first, as this will allow the data centre company to shift gear quickly and meet the specific accommodation needs of new customers, which is in keeping with LCL’s decision to opt for a customer intimacy strategy.

“LCL Brussels-North is a hub through which all Belgian internet traffic flows, and that makes it the region’s best connected data centre complex,” said Laurens van Reijen, Managing Director, LCL Data Centers. “It can be considered the beating heart of the digital economy. Adding another data centre will enable us to continue to support society’s growing digitalisation.”

The €30 million investment will make LCL even more appealing to customers wanting to accommodate their IT infrastructure at LCL Brussels-North. A number of customers have already reserved racks at this new data centre.
