Growth fueled by clients’ demands and the company’s expansion across key international markets
LONDON — December 29, 2021 — Yondr Group, a global leader, developer, owner operator and service provider of data centers added significant data center capacity to its growing asset portfolio in 2021, fueled by industry demand. The growth is part of Yondr’s global scaling strategy which saw the launch of data center projects in key international markets including Northern Virginia, Slough, Frankfurt and Mumbai.
Enterprise cloud infrastructure spending passed the USD 45 billion mark in the third quarter of 2021, up 37 percent on the same quarter in 2020. The growth in cloud computing services is driving an insatiable demand for data center capacity across global markets. Yondr’s expertise in developing and operating digital infrastructures at scale is well positioned to serve that demand and will see the company deliver multiple data centers across five continents by 2024.
“We’ve invested north of USD 3 billion this year to develop our portfolio of global assets. Our clients’ cloud capacity demand has been the main driver of our expansion in 2021 and we anticipate to sustain that momentum in the new year,” said Pete Jones, Chief Development Officer and Founder at Yondr Group. “Growing our assets is critical to the success of our business and we look forward to supporting our clients and partners on their scalability journey.”
An unprecedented year for Yondr, the company achieved significant milestones with the acquisition of 270 acres of real estate in Loudoun and Prince William Counties in Northern Virginia. The first step in its Americas expansion plans, the Northern Virginia locations are expected to support the delivery of 500MW of data center capacity.
As part of its Asia Pacific expansion, Yondr formed a strategic joint venture partnership with Everstone Group (Everstone), under the brand name EverYondr. The joint venture, with an initial capitalisation of USD 1 billion will deliver an initial 30MW facility by 2023 in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region, and 60MW of IT capacity when fully developed.
To support its EMEA growth plans, Yondr announced the development of the largest data center campus located in Slough, United Kingdom, which will see the development of a 30MW facility in the initial phase, with a total data center capacity of 100MW when fully developed. The company closed out the year with the announcement of a 40MW facility in the City of Bischofsheim, in Frankfurt.
Yondr’s expansion plans extend beyond adding more capacity to its portfolio. The company recently developed the Digital Futures Programme at the University Technical College in Heathrow (UTC) in collaboration with leading industry organisations. The programme provides a comprehensive curriculum aimed at giving students the best possible start to a career within the digital infrastructure industry.
In 2022, the company is committed to addressing the shrinking talent pool and developing new initiatives that will bring more awareness of the opportunities that exist in the data center industry.
