Hydro66 Holdings Corp. (“Hydro66”), the ultra-low emissions colocation and cloud infrastructure provider, and maincubes, an operator of high-availability and secure data centers located in Germany and the Netherlands, recently announced that they have established a new partnership. Both companies have agreed to collaboratively deliver next-generation architecture for corporate customers and will engage in joint marketing initiatives for their respective products and services.
As the need for low latency and accessibility grows for enterprises across a range of verticals, this partnership delivers enhanced value by allowing clients to optimize their applications and data, organizing them into latency-sensitive tiers. Data that requires close proximity to infrastructure is able to be hosted in maincubes’ Frankfurt or Amsterdam locations, while the remainder of applications can be hosted at Hydro66’s Boden facility where companies can enjoy significantly lower costs. In this way, this collaboration delivers better pricing and cost efficacy to clients while allowing for a competitive performance advantage.
maincubes’ Frankfurt facility, FRA01, is a greenfield location and offers tenants 4,200 square meters (sqm) and 6MW of IT power. The Amsterdam location, AMS01, having undergone an upgrade and modernization process, provides 4,400 sqm and 4.7MW. The company also recently expanded its portfolio with a new FRA02 facility, which is CO2-neutral and delivers 8,500 square meters of white space. This newest facility is poised to set new standards for both climate protection and delivery on customer requirements.
Oliver Menzel, CEO of maincubes, said, “We know from our customers in Germany that the next wave of applications and requirements is set to dwarf the current one with the rise of Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and the digitization of industries. For example, demand is rising in the automotive and IoT sectors for super-efficient, low-cost, low-latency compute. Combining this with hyperscale HPC (High Performance Computing) workloads and storage and with the highest standards of environmental protection and data sovereignty is exactly why we look forward to working with H66 in driving the next wave of innovation in the sector.”
David Rowe, CEO of Hydro66, said, “Hydro66 and maincubes make a great combination in addressing the twin needs of hyperlocal and hyperscale requirements. Customers are also looking for solutions to the dual challenges of data scaling and environmental responsibilities. maincubes are leaders in their field of low-latency, high-performing facilities in Amsterdam and Frankfurt, including the new carbon-neutral facility (FRA02), and Hydro66 represents the gold standard for ultra-low carbon emissions hyperscale facilities — all protected by EU data sovereignty.”
