Digital Realty plans US, Ireland data centre expansion

News: €150m expansion planned for company's Dublin hub at Profile Park.


Digital Realty has unveiled ambitions plans to further invest in its Irish and US data centre footprint.

The provider will be adding nearly 10,000 sq ft of technical space to its Dublin hub at Profile Park.

The company told the Irish Independent that the €150 million expansion comes after demand from customers seeking to use the site as a gateway for their operations in Europe and the Middle East.

Gary Keogh, sales director at Digital Realy, said: "Ireland has become a key destination for companies looking to benefit from the latest infrastructure and knowledge economy that is rapidly developing within the country."

The colo has at the same time announced that it has acquired 125.9 acres of land in Loudoun Couny, Virginia, US for $43 million.

It said the site is adjacent to one of the main fibre trunk runs in the county as well as a recently constructed sub-station and Dominion Virginia Power transmission lines.

This is expected to support the development of over two million square feet and the build-out of roughly 150 megawatts.

"This land acquisition will enable us to continue to support our customers’ growth with no downtime."
