Sparkle announces the launch of the first green data centre in Greece

Sparkle has announced the launch of Metamorfosis II, the first green data centre in Greece as well as one of the largest and most advanced in Europe. With this addition, the company now operates four open data centres in Greece.

All data centres are fully integrated with Nibble, Sparkle’s pan-Mediterranean optical network, and with Sparkle’s Tier-1 global backbone Seabone, to deliver high-speed connectivity services as well as access to major cloud providers. Moreover, thanks to their open and resilient configuration, the data centres offer a rich ecosystem of interconnected players for domestic and international connectivity.

The company’s data centres are designed to provide customers with sustainable, secure and best-in-breed infrastructures for their mission-critical IT systems while providing fast and reliable connectivity to the world.

Located in Athens, in the industrial area of Metamorfosis and just next to the other proprietary facility Metamorfosis I, the new data centre has a maximum capacity of 700 racks and 7.7 MW of total power and a modular design to accommodate customers’ needs. It was built following the most stringent anti-seismic criteria and designed to guarantee the maximum levels of reliability and security.

In addition, Metamorfosis II adopts the latest energy-efficient power and cooling systems available in the market resulting in a carbon footprint reduction of around 28,000 tons per year. The quality and energy excellence of the new data centre is confirmed by the Uptime Institute Tier III, the LEED Gold and the ISO 14001 certifications.

“We have created an exemplary open hub to offer an advanced experience to the most sophisticated customers, also guaranteeing a strong commitment to environmental sustainability,” Elisabetta Romano, CEO of Sparkle, said. “With this new opening, Sparkle enriches its infrastructural offer for national and international enterprises while confirming the attention for the Greek market in which we have been active for twenty years with an increasing presence.”
