Upgrade Serverius Datacenter 1
Increasing Serverius datacenter 1 with another 250 high density colocation racks will increase the amount of power with another redundant 1MW. As a transparent company we show our users how we did it and that we did it the best way possible.
On this page we inform our users about the upgrade of our datacenter. If you are a (potential) client and you want to visit the construction, please let us know.
April 2019 – The first delivery of Huawei hardware has been delivered at our datacenter with which our NOC department will replace all the current core Serverius network switches. In addition, there will also be a huge capacity upgrade. For example, in the first few months 250 times 100G ports will already be used in production.
We will work closely with our Partner Huawei to create a cutting-edge VxLAN + EVPN overlay powered network, ready for all the exciting plans we have for the coming years. Later this month, our NOC department will provide technical information about the network upgrade by an extended news item on our Serverius website. We will keep you posted!
Below a few pictures that I took yesterday during the unpacking of all the boxes. The switch type shown below will be the foundation of our new leaf-spine network, with 64 x 100Gbps which will support the rapid growth for the next few years. Although it is not all hardware yet, it gives a good idea of the size of this network upgrade project 🙂

Eight years ago Serverius started SDC1 in Dronten and has since grown considerably. Also the second datacenter SDC2 in Meppel is almost sold out. That is why it is currently the existing datacenter SDC1 will be renewed and doubled in size. Gijs van Gemert talks about the start of Serverius and the changes which will made to the existing datacenter.
