The company also has a presence in European data center hotspots in Frankfurt, London, Amsterdam, Paris and Dublin. "The German market is CyrusOne's second largest market in Europe, with approximately 115 MW of IT capacity currently in operation and development," said Andreas Paduch, area vice president of sales at CyrusOne.
"In addition to networking and sharing best practices with other members of the GDA, we hope that the collaboration will lead to more transparency in power constraints, planning and permitting. Furthermore, CyrusOne would like to contribute to finding long-term and strategic solutions with policy makers that follow the critical nature of data centers," Andreas Paduch explains his company's decision to position itself more prominently in the German Datacenter Association with the premium partnership: "We see GDA as the perfect platform to achieve this together."
"We are very pleased about the great support and trust that CyrusOne has placed in us," said GDA Chairwoman Anna Klaft, welcoming CyrusOne's membership upgrade. "Together with our members and partners, we are determined to improve the framework conditions for data center operations in Germany in intensive dialog with politics and society and to advance the sustainable digitalization of the Federal Republic."
