Wasabi Technologies Announces Plans to Open Data Centre in Holland
The Boston-based cloud storage company will improve high-performance service to European markets
Wasabi Technologies, the hot cloud storage company, announced its plans to open its first European data centre in Holland. The Boston-based company chose Amsterdam for its reputation as one of the most advanced networking and IT hubs in Europe.
Wasabi’s expansion will allow it to improve high-performance cloud storage service at low costs to its international and multi-national clients. In addition, the company’s new data centre will be located inside Europe’s most dense networking hub: Amsterdam Science Park. Amsterdam’s central location will serve as the perfect springboard into the European market.
“Over 20 percent of our business comes from outside the United States despite not yet having opened our first international data centre,” said David Friend, CEO of Wasabi. “Our recent $68M capital raise was specifically aimed at enabling Wasabi’s global expansion to serve the rapidly growing customer demand for our hot cloud storage services.”

As one of the most connected countries in the world, the Netherlands is an advanced hub for data centre operations. In fact, nearly one-third of all European data centres are located in the Amsterdam area and take advantage of AMS-IX—the world’s leading internet exchange. Wasabi will utilise Holland’s world-class 100% digital, advanced fiber-optic network that attracts multinational digital companies like Oracle, and Google.
