CenturyLink has connected maincubes’ FRA01 data centre in Frankfurt to its international fibre network backbone. maincubes’ customers now have access to CenturyLink’s 450,000 route miles global enterprise network across 60 countries and its portfolio of connectivity, cloud, security, voice and managed services.

The partnership with CenturyLink will enable colocation customers to securely connect their systems with bandwidths of up to several 100Gbps.

Ralf Straßberger, managing director for Germany at CenturyLink, said, “The maincubes data centre is an extremely valuable point-of-presence for us in the Frankfurt metropolitan region. The equipment is state-of-the-art and the security and compliance meet the highest standards.”

He added, “Next to that, the location in the immediate vicinity of the central German internet node, DE-CIX, is naturally ideal for us as a carrier. Since its commissioning in October 2017, the maincubes facility has developed excellently and has been able to attract a very interesting customer mix. We look forward to expanding our business together in the long term.”

Oliver Menzel, CEO of maincubes, said, “While our data centre infrastructure offers a 100% uptime guarantee, our customers will benefit from high bandwidth and a wide range of services thanks to the connection to CenturyLink’s international backbone.”

Last year, CenturyLink expanded one of its three data centres in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in response to greater regional demand from customers for colocation services, hosting, cloud computing, security and managed services. CenturyLink has 18 data centres in Latin America to provide its customers with direct connectivity to its global fibre optic network.

maincubes also currently operates the FRA02 facility in Frankfurt and its Amsterdam (AMS01) data centre.
