Data Tower at Amsterdam Science Park nominated for the most beautiful data center in the world

The Amsterdam Data Tower by Digital Realty has been nominated for a prize for the most beautiful data center in the world. The tower on the Science Park is nominated for the DCD Awards, which are international awards for, among other things, the most beautifully designed data center and the most sustainable data center.

Digital Realty took over Telecity's AMS 1 shortly after it was completed in 2016, opening it as the Amsterdam Data Tower. The 72m-tall building has 5,000 sq m (54,000 sq ft) of data space on 13 floors, and 9MW of power. The building uses outside air and groundwater for cooling, and also stores warm water underground. The building was designed by Rosbach Architects of the Netherlands.
