Planned 20MW facility in Brussels to be ready for service in Q1 of 2023
HERNDON, Va., December 2, 2021 – EdgeConneX®, the pioneer in global Hyperlocal to Hyperscale Data Center Solutions, announces that it will enter the Belgian market with a data center campus under development near Brussels. Located in Ternat, less than 15km from downtown Brussels, the site is expected to be ready for service in early Q1 of 2023.
The first greenfield data center build in the new campus will consist of 4 data halls that can support over 20MW of multi-tenant capacity for hyperscale cloud customers and other service providers. This marks the seventh market in EMEA and 40th market worldwide for EdgeConneX as it continues to rapidly build out its global data center platform.
As the capital of Belgium, Brussels also serves as the de facto capital of the EU. It is home to thousands of businesses and serves as a key gateway both into and within Europe, driving demand for data center capacity from global service providers wanting to support local customers in the Benelux region. By leveraging data center solutions powered by EdgeConneX, network, content, cloud and IT service providers can deliver a premium user experience that reduces the cost of delivery and latency, which ensures optimal performance and TCO for customers.
