Video: TelecityGroup Opens Helsinki Data Center

TelecityGroup has opened Hansa, the latest of the Group’s new data centres located in the Helsinki Metropolitan area, Finland. TelecityGroup selected the facility’s location in the Vantaa area of Helsinki as the ideal location for the new data centre due to its extensive connectivity options, its secure location and its proximity to a nearby 195MW power plant. “Finland is a major strategic European internet hub with excellent operational conditions, in terms of both location and premium infrastructure,” said Marko Vanninen, Managing Director, TelecityGroup Finland. “We believe that by increasing customer capacity in the region we will bring more international customers to the Finnish market. This will be further boosted by the government’s planned reform of electricity tax, as well as the plans for a direct marine data cable to Germany.” The data centre will be completed in stages and when complete will be one of the largest carrier-neutral data centers in Finland. Here’s a video overview of the Helsinki data center:
