Sonera builds the largest open data center in Finland

The first stone of Sonera's future data center in Helsinki has been laid. From 2017 it will be the largest open data center in Finland, offering services for businesses. With an area of 30,000 m2, it will be vital in promoting digitalization in Finland and will enable Sonera to help clients digitalize their business.

Sonera’s future data center will house up to 200,000 servers, with a capacity of 24 MW. It will also be the most modern and energy-efficient data center in Finland.

On May 4, 2016, the foundation stone was laid by Minister of Transport and Communications Anne Berner, Mayor of Helsinki Jussi Pajunen and CEO Valdur Laid of Sonera.

"This is an important investment for us, helping us meet our clients’ future needs. The demand for data centers is high, as data centers house most of the communications, server and storage equipment of the digital infrastructure, management included. We want to help our clients digitalise their business,” says Valdur Laid.
