New facilities to meet the strong demand in the Italian and Swedish markets
TelecityGroup, the leading premium provider of highly connected data centres in Europe, today announces that its new data centres in Milan and Stockholm are open for business on time and in-line with its capital expenditure forecast. These openings represent the latest stage in the Group’s demand-driven, fully funded programme of expansion, which will lift power capacity for customer use from 33 megawatts (MW) in 2008 to some 60MW in 2011. TelecityGroup now has two data centres in both Milan and Stockholm and 22 operational facilities across Europe.
At full capacity the new data centre in Milan will offer approximately 3 MW and 2,300 square metres of customer capacity. In Stockholm, at full capacity the data centre will provide 2,800 square metres and approximately 4 MW of customer power.
Michael Tobin, CEO of TelecityGroup, commented: “I’m very pleased to announce the opening of our new data centres in Milan and Stockholm, which were developed in response to strong, ongoing demand in key, established geographies. These openings further demonstrate the Group’s critical role in providing the infrastructure underpinning the European digital economy. Both data centres already have good customer orders and will allow TelecityGroup to capture the growth in the Italian and Swedish markets.”
Luca Beltramino, Managing Director of TelecityGroup Milan, commented: “Milan is one of Western Europe’s fastest growing network independent data centre markets. The expanding internet economy is a great source of opportunity for TelecityGroup and our new facility will ensure we have capacity to capture the growth in the Italian market. We are very pleased that a major Italian bank has already signed a significant contract for capacity in the facility.”
Niclas Sanfridsson, Managing Director of TelecityGroup Sweden, commented: “This new, state-of-the-art, facility enables us to cater for customers who are increasingly seeking premium, network independent, resilient data centres to provide secure hosting and connectivity services. One of our first customers is Netnod, the Swedish Internet exchange, which will have a live presence in the new Stockholm site from launch, offering global peering and connectivity options for customers. In addition, we have secured a major agreement with a leading global systems integrator for capacity in both the new and existing data centres.”
