US company Digital Realty has announced the expansion of its first facility within its 10 acre data centre campus at Profile Park in West Dublin.

Digital Realty’s clients include global corporations, IT managed services and cloud providers and financial institutions.

Last year, it announced that Profile Park would see a total investment of €150m into the data centre campus. The project for the entire facility could employ between 50 and 120 skilled construction workers during the construction project.

Digital Realty will add approximately 10,000 sq. ft. of data centre technical space to complement its current and fully occupied approximately 10,000 sq. ft. data centre hall at Profile Park.

The expansion will complete the first data centre facility at the campus, still leaving green field space for future data centre builds.

Digital Realty sales director Gary Keogh said: “We are committed to further developing our business in Ireland, and today’s announcement is a testament to that.”

“Digital Realty is witnessing increased demand from organisations looking to host their data in Ireland and use it as a gateway for their operations in Europe and the Middle East."

He added: "Ireland has become a key destination for companies looking to benefit from the latest infrastructure and knowledge economy that is rapidly developing within the country.”
