Serverfarm has announced it is developing ISR3, its first hyperscale facility in Israel. Developed in partnership with Israel Infrastructure Fund, ISR3 is located in central Israel. The new facility aims to 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. However, the company is no stranger to this region. Serverfarm and its principals have extensive local, regional and international real estate development experience specialising in the hotel and residential real estate and data centre markets.
Israel as a data centre market
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. In parallel with the development of ISR3, Serverfarm is actively developing additional opportunities to further expand its footprint in Israel and across the Middle East.
"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," said Avner Papouchado, Founder and CEO of Serverfarm.
"With the launch of ISR3, we're bringing world-class multi-tenant data centres to Israel, allowing organisations to rapidly tap into this growing region and innovate at scale. We're also introducing our world-leading InCommand DMaaS to the region so more IT and data centre leaders can optimise their operations and focus on innovation and digital transformation."
