AWS to Build Fourth Dublin Data Centre

Amazon announced the acquisition of a new site in Dublin where it will build another data center for the Irish cloud unit Amazon Web Services (AWS).

The multi-million dollar facility, which will be the fourth AWS data center in Dublin, will be installed in a former warehouse for storage and distribution of Barretts of the company. Located on the outskirts of Tallaght, south of Dublin, the new data center will be located very close to the other three facilities in Dublin, including a building under construction at the former Jacobs Cream Crackers biscuit factory.

Also in Tallaght it is the installation of AWS 22,300 square meters on the site of a former Tesco distribution center and a center converted into a factory formerly owned by Shinko Microelectronics.

After buying the Barretts site in late 2016, Amazon has already begun the construction process and asked for permission to demolish the building from the existing warehouse.

Local Dublin, Amazon is building a facility in Blanchardstown, where it already has two data centers. It is also building an additional center in Clonshaugh Business Park near Dublin Airport.

According to the Irish Independent, AWS investment in Ireland now stands at more than 1,000 million euros and the company is the largest provider of data center solutions in the country.

In addition to its expansion plans in Ireland, AWS announced the opening of a London area in the UK last year. The company said the new high availability region includes two different geographical areas, known as availability zones, each scheme meeting the Cyber Essentials Plus UK certification.

In addition, AWS offers all UK consulting clients on application development that are consistent with the principles of Cloud Security Center National Cyber Security in the UK and Compliance Compliance Governance reporting protocols on National Health (NHS).
