Telekom Romania announced recently it plans to open a data center in Cluj-Napoca.
The facility has been built by general contractor Tema Energy, and it can accommodate 300 server racks.
Located in a former telecommunications center across three levels and a basement, the facility is connected to 600kW and 1,000kW power sources.
“The fact that we developed the new data center in an existing building has significantly reduced our costs,” Vasile Voicu, Telekom Romania’s B2B product management manager said in a press release. “To build a data center at a capacity of 1MW now costs you 5-7mln USD.”
The new facility adds to the data centers developed in Bucharest, and two more in Brașov.
