At our Amsterdam I datacenter, we successfully managed to rehome a swarm of bees who had taken residence in one of our chiller gantries. We were so lucky that one of our engineers, Luke van den Akker, could bring along his father, a local beekeeper, who managed the rehoming to a safer location onsite. As an extension of our commitment and work with Host in Ireland’s DC for Bees initiative, we’re ensuring these bees are protected at our facility and able to continue to perform the critical role they play in our ecosystem and provide vital pollination in the Netherlands. We are happy to report that after moving to their new home, the hive is well and growing new larvae.
