DC Matrix 4 (Amsterdam)
Matrix 4 is IPTP Networks’ world-class data center, built using industry-leading solutions and technologies – APC InfraStruxure by Schneider Electric. Our scalable data center/IT room architecture allows our clients to deploy solutions with the highest levels of connectivity, security, adaptability and reliability; all whilst being tailored and adapted to complement the individual business model of each client.
Situated in Amsterdam Science Park a leading cluster in four BSIK ICT proposals and internationally recognized for its major e-science, GRID (a revolutionary new internet development) and multimedia expertise. Science Park Amsterdam is also a national network center: it hosts the AMS-IX – the world’s largest internet exchange and is the prime point of presence for state-of-the-art, ultra-high bandwidth network connection. This location is the primary destination for the world’s largest and most powerful companies, internet providers and corporate networks.
The industry accepted indicator of data center efficiency is PUE (Power Usage Effectiveness). This indicator provides an excellent representation of the efficiency of each data center’s cooling solution as well as electrical systems and infrastructure. The approximate industry average is a PUE of 2.5 with a widespread effort among providers to reduce this figure to 1.3. The Matrix 4 datacenter is designed with the latest in power-efficient technologies to target a PUE ratio of as low as 1.08 depending on load and various environmental conditions.
The high level of performance is achieved by the use of a cooling system solution with a ‘free-cooling’ feature. This allows us to minimize cooling expenses as well as to contribute to a better overall efficiency of the datacenter given climactic conditions in Amsterdam, with an average annual high of 12.8 and low of 7.5 degrees centigrade.
Our Matrix 4 data center has a dedicated power substation with a 2MW capacity, connected to the power supply grid of Amsterdam Science Park. This ensures a fully redundant supply of electricity for the facility.
