Israel has been chosen as the location of the development of new hyperscale data centre in the Middle East global region.
The data centre, named “ISR3”, arrives amid rapid digital growth and soaring demand in the global region for high-quality data centre colocation. It is the result of a partnership between Serverfarm and the Israeli Infrastructure Fund.
It is hoped that the modern, secure, and highly efficient facility will rapidly bring 9MW of critical capacity to Israel’s accelerating digital economy in the latter half of 2022.
ISR3 is the first Middle East-based facility and venture for Serverfarm, whose global data centre portfolio and operations span over 700 locations in 45 countries, including locations in the United Kingdom, Netherlands, Canada and the United States.
But the company is no stranger to this region following the firm’s principals having extensive local, regional and international real estate development experience specialising in the hotel and residential real estate and data centre markets.
Avner Papouchado, Founder and CEO of Severfarm, said:
“As leading tech and hyperscale organizations continue to expand into Israel and across the Middle East, we see an opportunity to leverage our expertise and deep roots in this region,”
“With the launch of ISR3, we’re bringing world-class multi-tenant data centres to Israel, allowing organizations to rapidly tap into this growing region and innovate at scale,” Papouchado added.
We’re also introducing our world-leading InCommand DMaaS to the region so more IT and data center leaders can optimize their operations and focus on innovation and digital transformation,” Papouchado continued.
Dubbed the Silicon Valley of the Middle East, Israel is poised for exponential data centre growth, thanks to its high-tech enterprise progress coupled with newly announced hyperscale cloud zones.
