IXEurope buys German datacentre

Too much excitement for one day

IXEurope has snapped up its third datacentre in Germany, the firm announced today.

And although the datacentre specialist was happy to disclose that the centre is north of Frankfurt and cost "in excess of €14m", it refused to name the company that sold the site.

Instead, IXEurope said that the deal includes "two existing financial services customers and one global internet company with total forward contract revenues of €17m over the next five years".

The datacentre - which was originally opened in 2001 - has recently completed a "very substantial refit". ®
