Northern European data centre operators, DEAC, has announced that it is building a large new data centre in the Baltics, promising it to be one of the most sustainable data centres in the region.
DEAC’s Riga data centre is billed as an attractive location for international companies as an outsourcing centre, data back office, and IT function consolidation, and will enable DEAC to consolidate its position as a Baltics’ market leader and a top service provider for companies in Europe.
The new data centre has a capacity of up to 1000 server racks, which aims to ensure a minimum level of service availability of 99.98 per cent. The 10 MW facility is hoping to achieve international Tier III certification, with DEAC utilising on-site solar panels for its main power supply, MY Neste Diesel as backup power.
“Together with the data centre operator DLC, DEAC offers two primary locations in Riga and Vilnius and is quickly growing to become the Baltics’ most significant and comprehensive data centre network,” commented Quaero Capital managing partner Sebastien Bourget.
“This is an incredible opportunity to build a new data centre that meets companies’ needs while also caring for our environment,” DEAC’s CEO, Andris Gailitis, agreed.
DEAC is one of the largest independent green energy data centre operators in Northern Europe, owned by Quaero European Infrastructure Fund II, an infrastructure investment fund managed by the asset management company Quaero Capital. DEAC serves thousands of customers in more than 40 countries by providing innovative IT services and applying individual business approaches and top-notch technologies. With DLC, also owned by Quaero European Infrastructure Fund II, DEAC offers two primary locations in Riga and Vilnius. DEAC has points of presence in the major cities of Central and Eastern Europe.
