PRESS RELEASE:  Frankfurt, Germany – NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com) has announced that it has completed phase 1 of its fourth Data Centre campus in Frankfurt.


The facility has been named Frankfurt 4 and is located in Hattersheim in the south-west of Frankfurt.

Frankfurt 4 is operated by e-shelter and is the 12th data centre in the e-shelter portfolio.  Once fully operational, the new campus will boast 24,000 sqm of IT space and 80 MW of IT load across five data centre buildings, supporting high-density requirements.

The latest expansion further strengthens e-shelter's market-leading position in Frankfurt which is one of the fastest-growing data centre hotspots in Europe. The Hattersheim campus is located approximately 10 km linear distance from the existing e-shelter sites, Frankfurt 1 and Frankfurt 3 and therefore enables customers to seamlessly grow in the region and split deployments over multiple data centre campuses to maximize redundancy and reliability.

The new site offers carrier-neutral colocation services, is connected to e-shelter's e-connect platform and provides access to multiple carriers and major cloud providers as well as to the world's largest internet exchange DE-CIX. Frankfurt 4 customers will have access to the e-shelter innovation lab, which allows customers and partners to test drive and validate cutting edge technology solutions and IT deployments in a live data centre environment.

Rupprecht Rittweger, CEO of e-shelter commented, “Phase 1 of Frankfurt 4 was built in less than 12 months with significant capacity being rented to customers in advance of the opening.  Frankfurt 4 strengthens our position as market leader leveraging a total capacity of more than 400 MVA in Europe with more than 300 MVA available in the Frankfurt region.”

Frankfurt 4 is part of the powerful and scalable NTT Com's global data centre network and connectivity ecosystem. Besides Frankfurt 4, e-shelter's current key expansion projects include developments in Amsterdam, Berlin, London and Madrid.
