AtlasEdge enters Austria with acquisition of Vienna data centre

Mon 4 Mar 2024

AtlasEdge acquired a data centre in Vienna, marking its entry into the Austria data centre market.

This move positions AtlasEdge within Austria’s primary connectivity hub, tapping into the city’s role as a critical gateway to the Central and Eastern Europe markets.

Vienna’s status as a flourishing centre for cloud services, digital media, and finance underscores the significant market demand driving this expansion.

Strategic Expansion and Future Capacities

The acquisition involves a site currently part of the Siemens Campus in Vienna-Floridsdorf, which includes an existing data centre and additional space for expansion.

Plans are in place to separate this site from the wider campus technically and physically, aiming to develop it into a 10MW facility by Q3 2026. Key features of the AtlasEdge Vienna site include:

  • An 11,000sqm plot
  • Future capacity of 10MW
  • Diverse fibre routes
  • An anchor tenant already in place
  • Secured access to power supply

This development follows closely on the heels of AtlasEdge’s recent inauguration of its second data centre in Hamburg, further extending its significant footprint across Europe, which now spans 19 metros in 12 countries.

Giuliano Di Vitantonio, CEO of AtlasEdge, said: “Vienna is an attractive market characterised by significant demand for alternative data centre operators and ready-to-sell capacity.”

He highlighted the acquisition as evidence of AtlasEdge’s capability for executing ambitious mergers and acquisitions on a pan-European scale, noting that it serves both as a platform for the local market and a catalyst for further expansion.

Henry Harris, Chief Development Officer at AtlasEdge, said: While Vienna is one of the fastest growing markets in the region, it is also one which has been historically underserved.”
