AM3 Science Park data centre

Your digital gateway to Europe

Situated in one of the world's most network-dense locations and designed to set new standards in data and infrastructure management, AM3 Science Park Amsterdam is a major low latency gateway to the continent, reaching 80% of Europe within 50 milliseconds. The data centre is home to the world's top mobile networks and service enablers, social media and video sites, cloud companies, advertising businesses and electronic traders.

AM3 - Amsterdam IBX Data Centre

Amsterdam AM3 data centre and Internet Exchange point is located at Science Park with vital peering opportunities suitable for mission-critical interconnection and colocation services.

Energy efficiency

Environmental legislation is becoming ever more stringent while energy costs continue to rise, compelling customers to attach more and more importance to sustainability. AM3 Science Park Amsterdam is one of the most sustainable data centres in the world, allowing you to increase your energy efficiency and substantially reduce your carbon footprint.

Equinix Awards - EMEA 2012 DatacenterDynamics Award
Built to LEED Gold certificate standards, our AM3 facility deploys Aquifer Thermal Energy Storage (ATES) in the ground instead of mechanical cooling and combines this with hybrid-cooling towers. This allows full use of free cooling while generating hot water for neighbouring Amsterdam University. This ground-breaking innovation earned AM3 the DatacenterDynamics Green Data Center EMEA Award in 2012.


Direct connections with networks and customers

Like all of Equinix's locations, AM1 and AM2 are equipped with a Whalebone and Main Distribution Fibre Cage that provides you direct interconnectivity to networks, as well as customers and partners.

This means that latency of service delivery to customers and employees is kept to a minimum - crucial in a world where microseconds may cost both customers and money - and that the reliability and scalability of your applications are maximised.

And since every one of Equinix's 100+ data centres operates uniformly across five continents, global expansion couldn't be simpler.
