Netherlands Datacenter

We collaborate with Switch Datacenters

General Information

Switch Datacenters are a Dutch-owned carrier-neutral business with three server locations around Amsterdam. The company’s founders have all lead or worked for hosting services, so the progression to data centers was natural. Now, they employ a highly trained team for the design, build, and operation of their data centers. Their facilities hold a Tier 4 emergency classification, which means that their network is online 99.995% of the time.


The Switch Datacenter facilities have a power capacity of 10 MVA. They have 2N transformers, 2N Master Distribution Boards, 2N UPS, and even a Diesel-powered generator on site. Essentially, the company uses the latest technology when it comes to power and connectivity. Furthermore, they also take pride in ensuring that their datacenters are powered with 100% green electricity.

Network and Carriers

As we have mentioned, Switch Datacenters are carrier-neutral. What’s more, the company’s primary facility is conveniently located in the city region of Amsterdam that’s known for having a high fiber density of International Backbone Carriers. The company also has an NL-IX port and the Amsterdam Internet Exchange AMS-IX port as well.


Switch Datacenters maintain a temperature of 23°C (+/- 5°C) at all of their facilities thanks to their Cold Corridor System. Consequently, their 2N power capacity has an N+1 cooling redundancy as well — which makes their cooling energy efficiency (EUE) 1.04.

They hold several certifications including PCI-DSS for payment security, ISO 27011 for information security management, and they have a pending status for the ISO 14011 certificate, which ensures corporate responsibility.

The Dutch IT magazine Computable has also nominated Switch Datacenters for the title of the “Best IaaS-/PaaS- supplier of the year 2018.”

The company has 24/7 technical support from certified engineers. Furthermore, they also have 24/7 security services at their facilities.

Their sites have air conditioning units that keep the temperature at optimal levels.

Switch Datacenters have a high-end 2N and N+1 infrastructure.
