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 have expanded the center by 150 percent during the past two years. The extension was successfully brought into operation in May 2018.

As we had previously done for the first phase of construction, we requested LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification in Gold for the extension. In 2018, this certification was also presented for the second construction phase – an honor that only very few of the world’s data centers receive.
