Serverius that offers data center colocation, connectivity, and cybersecurity services is working with ABB to modernize its two data centers. Serverius called these two data centers ‘data highway’ between Amsterdam and Frankfurt. With this partnership, ‘data highway” will have faster and safer connectivity which will provide greater efficiency, reliability, and uptime for colocation customers.
Growing to meet customers’ need
Serverius managing director Gijs van Gemert talked about this modernization saying,
“While we started in a barn in 2009, we have now grown into a major data center player with international visibility and reputation. With customers whose expectations are constantly increasing, we want to continue to meet this demand, now and in the future.”
To meet customer needs, Serverius is working for protecting the future vision of a flexible and scalable colocation data center. The company collaborated with ABB to supply a range of electrification solutions and data center installation capabilities for six months.
Supply for a complete electrification solution
Serverius head of technical infrastructure Alfred van den Berg explains this project saying,
“It was critical for us to invest in a complete electrification solution, which would help us build quickly and guarantee high uptime during the build phase. We utilized ABB’s international know-how for the execution of the entire project right from project management to final delivery.”
The ability to supply a complete turnkey package, which includes full project management, install partnerships and a flexible range of products that enable continuous operations is critical for any colocation provider, states ABB.
The ABB system’s modular design means not to shut down any server racks and to maintain service delivery during upgrade works. The central switchgear includes ABB’s distribution system which combines reliability and quality with safety. This system gives Serverius additional visibility into the health of the system.
ABB Global Data Center business head Ciaran Flanagan talked about this collaboration saying,
“We understand that smart data needs smart power and at ABB we focus on delivering the most flexible, reliable and intelligent data center solutions for our customers, ensuring their businesses run efficiently and safely 24 hours a day.”
