Istanbul, Turkey - 17 September 2015: Data center specialist, Zenium Technology Partners (www.zeniumdatacenters.com), has launched its state-of-the-art data center campus in Istanbul. Strategically located in close proximity to the new International Financial Center, Zenium Istanbul One is the first data center campus in Turkey to offer bespoke wholesale solutions. Operated on a carrier neutral basis, it is widely expected that the campus will become the key hub for connectivity in the region.

The Istanbul One campus comprises three self-contained, purpose-designed buildings totalling 12,000 square meters of high specification technical space and boasts an unrivalled power supply with 30MVA available from diverse feeds. These mission-critical facilities are also the first to be designed to meet the highest level of earthquake code allowing for immediate use and continued operation following a seismic event.

Zenium’s unique approach to data center design means that every customer’s data suite is not only built to meet their initial day-one power and cooling profile, supported by dedicated plant, but also to scale up as requirements increase. This offers multiple benefits including a future-proofed solution that is both energy efficient and economical from the outset.

Istanbul One is the first in a series of planned data center facilities to be opened by Zenium in Turkey, illustrating the company’s goal to set the standard for wholesale solutions in the region. Wholesale colocation is readily available in more developed markets, increasing cost-efficiency and the availability of much needed IT infrastructure. Until now there has been a lack of quality data center space in Turkey and no supply of wholesale solutions.

“There is huge pent up demand in this country. Zenium is investing in Turkey with the aim of not only setting the standard for wholesale colocation but supporting the growth and availability of data center infrastructure,” said Aslıhan Güreşcier, Zenium’s Country Manager in Turkey.

Franek Sodzawiczny, Zenium’s CEO and Founder, added: “We offer a tried and tested solution for companies that want to take advantage of flexible terms, carrier neutrality and scalable power and cooling, enabling businesses to benefit from enhanced choice and the ability to future-proof their data center requirements from day one. We believe that the resilience and quality of Zenium’s wholesale colocation offering, combined with speed of delivery and the ability to support our customers growing and changing needs, will enable us to become the provider of choice. KoçSistem, Istanbul One’s first customer, has already started providing its customers with IT and cloud services from the new facility.”

Zenium Istanbul One brings the most resilient and efficient data center solution to Turkey:
• Constructed from a concrete frame with proprietary steel insulated cladding, the three buildings which comprise the Istanbul One campus are designed to meet the highest level of earthquake code allowing for immediate use and continued operation following a seismic event.
• Istanbul One has been designed and constructed with resilience in mind. Key features include:
o Mains power supplied via dual diverse HV feeds providing 30 MVA, backed-up by seismically-rated emergency generators
o Diverse connectivity with access to multiple fibre providers
o Industry-leading, multi-level security
• Istanbul One offers world-class fully customisable data center solutions supported by dedicated mechanical and electrical plant. Each data suite is also scalable which means it can be designed and built to meet a lower day-one power and cooling profile and expanded as requirements, such as power densities, increase. This provides customers with an energy efficient data center that is economical and offers predictive operational expenditure from the outset.
• Zenium’s carrier neutral policy offers access to multiple fibre providers, enabling customers to choose the telecommunications operator which best meets their needs.

Key facts about the Turkish data center market:
• There are circa 30 data centers in Turkey, of which approximately 60 percent are based in Istanbul and its environs.
• Despite the number of data center operators active in Turkey, the supply of good quality facilities has historically been scarce: the average size is estimated at around 700 sq m, which is significantly lower than the average 2,000 sq m in more established markets.
• Operated by a mixture of local and international providers, the existing data centers are small - with less than 1,000 sq m capacity and few of them meet the standards required for a Tier 3 facility.
• The launch of Istanbul One not only doubles the available capacity in the region but also brings a wholesale offering to the market for the first time.
