EvoSwitch data center is located in the Amsterdam area of the Netherlands. The data center is just 16 km away from Schiphol Airport, 1500m from the highway (A5-A9) and less than 800m from railway station NS Haarlem Spaarnwoude.

The EvoSwitch AMS1 facility is a 3-story concrete and steel structure building, with prefabricated concrete and steel panel facades. With the exception of the offices, it does not contain any windows, ensuring maximum security. The data center currently spans more than 10,000 m2, with room to expand to 40,000 m2.

In EvoSwitch data hall 5 and above company use separate modular data center suites. These environments have an ultra-low PUE, redundant 2N dedicated power and cooling infrastructure.

A significant reduction in CO2 emissions and the use of sustainable energy can support the reduction of the greenhouse effect.

How EvoSwitch preserves the environment:

  • Very low PUE scores
  • Advanced technology saves 60-80% on energy usage
  • Cables through ducts, no hot spots
  • HF-lighting connected to movement sensors
  • BMS (Building Management System)
  • Increased awareness of energy cost and savings
  • Spearheading innovative green developments


EvoSwitch guarantee the highest possible datacenter availability while using less power than standard data centers resulting in a substantial cost reduction. EvoSwitch currently has an energy capacity of 25 Megawatts, with the possibility to expand up to 60 Megawatts. Because DC use multiple sources of power, data centers are always have enough power to run your (mission-critical) applications:

Power Supply:

  • Fully 2N equipped
  • 100% green energy
  • High density solutions (>32 kW)
  • Best-in-class efficient UPS
  • 99.99999 % uptime in 2N since 2007
  • 25 MVA current capacity (expansion up to 60 MVA)
  • 16 diesel generator sets (gensets)


Advanced data center cooling solutions drastically reduce energy consumption and housing costs.

Regular data centers’ cooling uses energy-wasteful compressors. This energy efficient cooling Free Cooling technique makes intelligent use of the outside air, which has an ideal temperature and humidity thanks to the moderate climate of the Netherlands.

Cooling overview:

  • Redundant cooling ACU (2N)
  • Cold and hot air separated (hot & cold aisle containment)
  • High-density cooling solutions
  • Standard 15kW (25 kW on request)
  • Temperature 24 °C (± 5 °C)
  • Relative humidity 50% (± 25%)
