New alliance creates Frankfurt Amsterdam Stockholm Boden (FAST-B) data center network and brings hyperscale economics to global audience.

Boden, Sweden, 11th March 2020 - Hydro66 Holdings Corp. (“Hydro66” or the “Company”) (CSE:SIX) (OTCQB:HYHDF) is delighted to announce a new partnership with maincubes, a data center operator located in Germany and the Netherlands. Hydro66, the ultra-low emissions colocation and cloud infrastructure provider, and maincubes, the colocation data center operator with facilities in Frankfurt and Amsterdam, have agreed to partner in delivering next generation architecture for corporate customers including joint marketing of products and services.

This new combined approach will empower Enterprise clients to optimise their applications and data into latency-sensitivity tiers. Apps or data requiring close-proximity infrastructure can be hosted in Frankfurt or Amsterdam, and the remainder can be hosted at Hydro66’s Boden’s facility where costs are significantly lower. This will result in better overall pricing for clients and create a competitive advantage for both companies.

David Rowe CEO of H66 said, “maincubes and Hydro66 make a great combination in addressing the twin needs of hyperlocal and hyperscale requirements. Customers are also looking for solutions to the dual challenges of data scaling and environmental responsibilities. maincubes are leaders in their field of low latency high performing facilities in Frankfurt, including their new carbon neutral facility (FRA02), and Amsterdam whilst Hydro66 is the gold standard for ultra-low carbon emissions hyperscale facilities. Meanwhile, customer data is fully protected by EU data sovereignty.”

Oliver Menzel, CEO of maincubes, said, “We know from our customers in Germany that the next wave of applications and requirements are set to dwarf the current ones with the rise of Artificial Intelligence/ Machine Learning and the digitization of industries. For example, demand is rising in the automotive and IoT sectors for super-efficient, low cost, low latency compute. Combining this with hyperscale HPC workloads and storage with the highest standards of environmental protection and respecting data sovereignty is exactly why we look forward to working with H66 in driving the next wave of innovation in the sector.”

Hydro66 unterstützt zukunftsorientierte Unternehmen bei ihren Anwendungen mit der optimalen Hosting-Umgebung. Hydro66 bieten hocheffiziente, grüne Colocation-Lösungen, die sich ideal für Großkunden, Cloud Computing, Systemintegratoren und HPC eignen. Das aktuelle Datenmodell ist veraltet und nicht nachhaltig. Die überwiegende Mehrheit der Rechen- und Speicherleistung findet an teuren Innenstadt Standorten mit schmutzigem Strom und unzuverlässigem Netz. Steigende Strompreise und Kapazitätsengpässe städtischer Netze verschlimmern das Problem.Inzwischen sinken die Telekommunikationspreise jährlich um rund 20 %. Facebook, Google und Apple haben dies durch den Aufbau von überdimensionalen nordischen Rechenzentren neben großen Stromnetzen gelöst, die bei extrem niedrigen Strompreisen sehr zuverlässig und zu 100 % grün sind. Jetzt können Großhandel, Unternehmen, Systemintegratoren und Cloud-Unternehmen durch die Zusammenarbeit mit Hydro66 ähnliche Vorteile wie die Internet-Riesen genießen.
