Beyond.pl, the Polish cloud and colocation services provider, is planning to expand its data centre campus in the city of Poznan to cater to “growing demand”.
Beyond.pl’s campus stands midway between the capital cities of Berlin and Warsaw, which are only 4 milliseconds away via high-speed links, while Frankfurt can be reached in only 10 milliseconds - aiding customer connectivity and the delivery of their services to consumers.
The facility has more than 20 Polish and international internet carriers and hosts the Polish Internet Exchange EPIX. “With dark fibre already in place between Poznan, Warsaw and soon Frankfurt, Poznan is the perfect connectivity hub in the Central European region,” said the firm.
The company says its existing data centre is the only facility in the EU region to be certified ANSI/TIA-942 Rated 4 to deliver efficient operations.
The expansion, said the firm, will be realised using a mixed-tier model allowing customers to "choose between appropriate levels of service availability guarantees to meet their business needs".
Wojciech Stramski, CEO of Beyond.pl, said: “Having access to best-in-class infrastructure in Central Europe is a real benefit to global customers, as it provides them a stable, secure and robust infrastructure to expand into the region.”
Stramski said: “Our extremely efficient use of energy, proven out by a PUE of 1.2, with 100% green energy, makes Beyond.pl a great option.
“Also, when factoring in the price arbitrage of energy in Poland versus the Western markets, we can deliver significant cost savings on colocation services which are of greater quality due to our Rated 4 infrastructure - when comparing to the traditional markets of Frankfurt, London, Amsterdam and Paris.”
Both Google and Microsoft have recently announced new data centre projects in Poland.
