Finland will be one of the 13 global data centres used by Atos for cloud services
International IT company Atos says it is building the world’s most eco-efficient data centre in Helsinki reports the European Union’s Economic Development & Investment magazine, Invest in EU.
Situated in the Suvilahti district of Helsinki, the Tier Three class data centre will use sea water for cooling. The heat produced by the new datacentre will provide heating for more than 2000 households, according to Atos.
Atos says the decision to locate in Helsinki was influenced by Finland’s pioneering role in cloud services and data centre technology, as well as the country’s stable society. Finland’s cool climate and easy availability of cooling water are also important factors that make it an attractive location for data centres.
