Nabiax will start the expansion of its Data Center campus in Alcalá Data Center (ADC) in September. This campus will be the biggest in Spain, topping the 100 MW of IT Power, which will be powered through a substation. The campus will also guarantee direct interconnection with the Cloud.
The existing building (ADC1) has power to scale up to 33 MW and is the only one certified TIER IV Gold by Uptime Institute in the country, thus being the national reference in the Data Center market. The first development of the campus will be called ADC2 and means a 40-million-euro investment from Nabiax. This new building will deliver 23 MW and has 15,100 sqm of technical infrastructure available for its clients in a 100% Carrier Neutral ecosystem. The project will generate up to 500 jobs in the city of Madrid and its surroundings.
Thus, Alcalá Data Center Campus positions Madrid as the technologic and digital hub of Southern Europe for hyperscalers. These Cloud Service Providers are aiming to open their new Availability Zones in Spain in the upcoming years, which will turn the region in one of the most relevant Digital Hubs in the continent.
Emilio Díaz, Nabiax’s CEO, stated: “8 MW of the new capacities that we are building have already been committed with top of the class hyperscalers. We expect this factor to produce a call effect for other Cloud Service Providers around our campus. Moreover, we have availability of space and power supply to keep growing up to 100 MW, to answer to the massive demands of these potential clients”.
Besides, the executive has explained the relevance that the Data Center industry has gained during the Covid-19 pandemic: “Before this crisis we already knew that the process of digital transformation would lead us to a world in which Data Centers have a significant value. Without a doubt, this crisis has highlighted that our services are most necessary for everyone. Both companies and individuals have acknowledged how our infrastructures are the base in which all platforms have been able to keep operating during the pandemic, especially those related with leisure, remote work and education”.
