Cloud computing and Infrastructure-as-a-Service provider SingleHop is opening a 2,000-server data center in Amsterdam in May to meet growing demand from resellers, hosting providers and SMBs around the world.

The facility will expand SingleHop's server capacity by approximately 20% and widen its global footprint to reach high-growth markets in Europe and the surrounding areas, SingleHope COO Andy Pace said.

"This European data center solidifies our commitment to building a truly global network," Pace said.

"With demand for hosted infrastructure and cloud computing growing quickly in Europe, this facility helps position us to satisfy this demand with our award-winning automated approach to infrastructure hosting that can have clients up and running in minutes."

It will feature 4,330 sq m of data center space and use 100% green energy, according to SingleHop, and have connections to AMS-IX, AT&T, BT, Cable & Wireless among other connectivity providers.

According to Gartner, $677bn will be spent on cloud services worldwide over the next three years, with Western Europe predicted to be the second-largest region, accounting for nearly a quarter of all spending from 2013 to 2016.

Eastern Europe, Asia/Pacific, Latin America, the Middle East and North Africa as are also expected to post the highest growth rates during this period.

For SingleHop, Amsterdam offered a well-connected location with a skilled workforce and a significant number of quality network providers and data centers in the area.

The facility will replicate the entire SingleHop technology platform found at its US locations, as well as replicate the security features of US data centers, with biometric physical access controls, individually locking cabinets and 24-hour security.

In addition, the Amsterdam data center will also be powered by SingleHop's LEAP3 platform, giving customers complete control over their infrastructure, regardless of data center location, from any smart phone or computer.

All of the company's current services will be offered through the new data center, including dedicated servers, cloud services, and managed services.

Customers can choose to deploy SingleHop's services at its data centers in Chicago, Phoenix or Amsterdam.
