Yondr’s Group, a developer, owner operator and service provider of data centers, has announced its plans to build a number of data center facilities in Berlin, Germany. The project’s first phase, which is situated in the municipality of Ragow, is anticipated to provide 10MW of capacity and be ready for use in 2024. The data center campus will be able to accommodate 42MW of power when fully constructed.
With the completion of its most recent project in Berlin, Yondr will have 82MW of total IT capacity in the German market. It will also provide vital network routes across major European and German metropolises, including new network routes into Eastern Europe. This announcement follows the launch of the company’s 40MW data center facility in Frankfurt.
By 2026, $6.46 billion will be invested in the German data center market, which is projected to expand at a CAGR of more than 2.35 percent between 2020 and 2026. Berlin is a highly desirable metro area for cloud providers looking for a competitive alternative to Frankfurt because of its strength as a growing technological centre and its closeness to important network routes.
The Yondr Berlin location is near to the main network pathways that connect Leipzig and Dresden. Along with connecting eastward to Eastern Europe, the primary network routes also go there, where several carriers, including Colt Technology Services, EXA Infrastructure, Arelion (previously Telia Carrier), euNetworks, and Zayo, are present.
According to Pete Jones, Chief Development Officer and Founder at Yondr Group, they have optimistic growth projections for 2022. They observe significant client interests in tier II metros that are closely related to FLAP markets. Their German portfolio will rise as a result of Berlin, and they will be able to serve more customers with expanding cloud computing and connectivity requirements.
Furthermore, with data center projects presently underway in Amsterdam, London, and Frankfurt, Yondr’s position in Europe is expanding.
