New €23m Dataplex energy efficient data centre opens in Dublin

20 Sep 2013

Dataplex will open the doors of a new €23m data centre in Dublin, which it claims to be one of Ireland’s most energy-efficient operations. The new data centre will result in the creation of 25 new jobs.

In May we reported that Dataplex was establishing a new 70,000 sq-foot data centre in Dublin.

The second phase of the B10 facility is under construction after investment was secured for the expansion of the facility.

Dataplex, which is led by CEO Eddie Kilbane and chairman Colm Piercy, delivers high power density and leading power efficiency wholesale co-location and private suites tailored for corporations, ISPs, managed services providers, banks and multinational IT enterprises. 

According to Kilbane, the second phase will see the overall capacity triple at the B10 facility.

“With investment now in place for Phase 2 here in Dublin, we will deliver ongoing innovation and tailored market-shaping facilities.” 

As well as the facility in Dublin, additional facilities are also under construction in the UK and Malta, which will open in 2014.

“In its current phase, Dataplex will have invested in excess of €23m into our B10 facility in West Dublin,” said Piercy.

“This demonstrates the commitment of Dataplex, the management team and the investors who are supporting this project. This Dataplex facility is the greenest and most environmentally friendly data centre anywhere in Ireland, and one of few market leaders in Europe, of which our team are extremely proud.”
