More capacity for our energy-efficient data center

Our data center in Biere (near the city of Magdeburg) was put into operation in 2014 and is one of the world's most efficient data centers. And because demand for cloud services "made in Germany"is on the rise worldwide, we are currently expanding it to increase its server capacity by 150 percent. The foundation for the expansion of the data center has been laid:The new modules are scheduled to commence operation in the second quarter of 2018.

In 2017, a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification in Gold was requested for the expansion, just like it was requested for the first construction phase - an award that only very few data centers receive worldwide.
