30 Jan 2008

Ireland’s former fixed line monopoly eircom has announced plans to invest more than EUR100 million (USD147.7 million) in a new 125,000sq ft data centre in Clonshaugh, north Dublin, that is due to open in July this year. The operator says it has inked a contract with real estate firm Digital Realty Trust, a company that has been buying data centres across the US and Europe. The next generation data centre will provide enterprise and business-focused services, with a particular focus on managed service solutions, it said.
