By Joe Curtis

A data centre developer has signed a deal to build and lease an IT infrastructure base in the Netherlands.

Digital Realty has announced the agreement with KPN, a Dutch landline and mobile communications firm, as it seeks to grow in the European market.

The data centre landlord will reportedly fund the construction of the 7,000 square foot centre in Groningen before leasing it to KPN, porviding it with a centre with a capacity of 3.5 megawatts of critical load.

Michael Foust, CEO of Digital Realty, said: "We are delighted to support KPN in this mission critical project and we look forward to supporting their future data centre needs. The Netherlands is a strategically important market for our European customers as they seek to implement robust data centre solutions in order to facilitate business growth.

"Furthermore, the deal demonstrates our ability to collaborate to provide the robust backbone that organisations today rely on to deliver flawless IT services. We are delighted to welcome KPN to our portfolio."
