selects Relined as First Carrier for New Amsterdam Colocation Facility

02-05-2017, an ambitious data center provider, an ambitious data center provider planning a targeted global roll-out of large-scale data centers in selected markets, announces the deployment of multiple dedicated dark fiber rings connecting its first, soon to open flagship data center in Amsterdam to virtually all colocation data centers in the Amsterdam region. Dutch company Relined Fiber Network will be the first network provider to establish a PoP and supply redundant dark fiber connectivity for the new facility.

Founded by some hosting industry veterans and accompanying investors, recently broke ground on its first data center, AMS1. Located in one of the world’s most ‘carrier fiber’-dense areas in the Amsterdam South-East business district, AMS1 is a 137,778 sq. ft. facility being built with scale in mind and modularity as a key component.

AMS1 features a highly energy-efficient data center design. The use of indirect adiabatic cooling combined with innovative heat exchange technology and hot aisle containment results in a calculated, energy-efficient pPUE of 1.04. The modularity thus flexibility/scalability of its power and cooling technology would cater to the dynamic needs of a wide range of customers – from startups to enterprise-scale users.

Relined Fiber Network will establish a Point-of-Presence (PoP) in AMS1 – providing with an extensive network, with multiple dedicated dark fiber rings spanning the Amsterdam metropolitan area. The two meet-me-rooms (MMRs) present in AMS1 provide customers with highly redundant connectivity options.

“We work with the world’s top carriers as well as local metro providers to unlock dark fiber options and meet bandwidth requirements for our customers,” said Jochem Steman, CEO of “Relined is the first carrier to open a PoP in AMS1, connecting the new facility to all other data centers in the Amsterdam metropolitan area and beyond. As a Dutch provider of reliable fiber infrastructure across the Netherlands, Relined is an ideal partner to start with, to interconnect our new facility with other data centers in the region.”
