InterDC primarily focuses on businesses in the East of the Netherlands. However InterDC can also be used as a fallback location for datacenters located in the West of the Netherlands. InterDC is located 144 feet above sea level (NAP), while the datacenters in the West are situated below the sea level. InterDC has a total rack capacity of 60, which together can house a total of 1800 servers.
InterDC uses renewable energy consisting of 22% wind, 64% water and 14% biomass. The datacenter uses free air cooling for most of the year, which means that outside air is being used to cool the servers. This method of cooling is possible because the temperature in the Netherlands, for 80% of the year, is below the 20 degrees celsius. The remaining 20% of the year uses the traditional cooling method.
Thereby the target temperature, on the datafloor, is set to 24 degrees celsius, which also helps in reducing cooling load.
InterDC has an open network policy, meaning that any internet/network provider can establish themselves in our datacenter. This gives you the option to choose from a broad selection of internet/network providers within our datacenter. Thereby via Interracks, the parent company of InterDC, we can deliver multiple connectivity services to you.
InterDC is a subsidiary of InterRacks CV which focuses on providing data housing. In the autumn of 2010, InterRacks envisioned the plans to build their own datacenter. One reason for the plans was the need to expand, which could not be provided by the existing data site. The second reason was to improve the response times in case of server/network calamities by having the data site closer.
InterRacks was founded in 2005 with the aim of offering dedicated servers and colocation services. In 2006 Interracks expanded the product portfolio with connectivity solutions and internet routing. In 2011 we added InterDC to our portfolio.
