Polish data center market leader strengthens its position
In 2021 Atman increased its share in the data center market in Poland to 15%, gaining 4% compared to 2020. PMR’s report “Data Center Market in Poland 2022” confirms Atman’s unwavering 10-year leadership in the ranking of data center operators in terms of space capacity for colocation and hosting services.
We have been consistently expanding our data center infrastructure since 2001, and since 2011 we have been the market leader in Poland. In the TOP 10 list of operators, published in the latest PMR report “Data Center Market in Poland 2022”, at the beginning of this year our share in the DC market in terms of net space was 15%.
The recorded 4% increase in our market share in 2021 is certainly related to the completion and commissioning of another modern colocation facility in the Atman Data Center Warsaw-1. The F6 building has 1.44 K sq. m of net space (3 K sq. m gross), 3.6 MW of IT power at its exclusive disposal and is versatile in its connectivity. The total space of our data centers is 10.5 K sq. m of net space for colocation, dedicated servers and cloud services (19.5 K sq. m gross).
Later this year we plan to start the construction of the combined buildings F7 and F8 on the campus of the Atman Data Center Warsaw-1, which will increase the capacity of Atman Data Centers by 3.6 K sq. m net. Further plans include a greenfield investment in a third data center located in the Warsaw agglomeration, with an area of up to 50 K sq. m and power of approx. 50 MW.
According to PMR analysts, we are the market leader in Poland also in terms of power connections available to customers. Currently, Atman Data Centers have a total of 71.5 MW of power at their disposal.
