Founded in 1998, Global Switch has emerged as a leading owner, operator and developer of large-scale, carrier and cloud-neutral, multi-tenant data centers. With 13 data centers located at major connectivity hubs in Europe and in the center of Tier 1 cities in Asia Pacific, the company has a high network density with a total technical footprint of 390,000 sq m.
Global Switch’s Frankfurt campus – comprising two data centres – Frankfurt North and Frankfurt South is located close to the financial district and city centre. The campus is a key connectivity and cloud hub providing some of the world’s leading brands with access to DE-CIX, a wide range of international and regional carriers, ISPs and leading cloud providers. This network dense ecosystem and its proximity to the Central Business District offers high speed connectivity, attracting global, European and German financial institutions amongst other leading international brands.
Data centers are the backbone of the digital transformation of the economy and society in Germany, Europe and worldwide. Data centers are a guarantee for sustainable digitization. I consider this future collaboration as a valuable contribution to further optimizing the data center business.
