ServeCentric expands lease in digital Dublin data centre

Wholesale data centre space provider Digital Realty Trust ( reported this week that Irish managed services and data center operator ServeCentric ( had signed a new lease agreement for additional space within DRT's Dublin data centre, based on the increasing demand for its own services.

ServeCentric, Digitial Realty Trust explains in the press release, is a privately-owned hosting organization based out of Ireland - the country's "leading managed services and data centre operator."

The company is based out of the Blanchardstown Corporate Park in Dublin, which is a facility operated by Digital Realty Trust. Though it isn't explicitly stated in the announcement, it's a safe bet that the new lease is for additional space within the Blanchardstown facility, one of two data centre locations operated by Digital Realty Trust in Dublin.

"Digital Realty Trust's Turn-Key Datacentre facilities provide us with state-of-the-art environments for supporting mission critical infrastructure. As important, we have been able to extend our footprint as and when we have needed," says ServeCentric CEO Aidan Donnelly, quoted in the press release. "Leasing space allows us to move forward without prohibitive capital investment, and the time required to bring a new data centre online is significantly reduced. As a result we have been able to react to the market on our terms, and have simultaneously guaranteed delivery of the best service to our customers."

Ireland has a developing role as a technology hub, and as a connection to both the UK and Europe. Network carrier Hibernia Atlantic has been promoting the location as a technology hub as it develops its Project Kelvin terrestrial and submarine cable deployment to connect the country directly to North America.

Last week, Hibernia Atlantic announced that it had made a significant connection to Irish telecommunications company's Clonshaugh, Ireland data centre facility.
