One of the largest independent data centre operators in Northern Europe, DEAC, is building a large new data centre that will be one of the most sustainable data centres in the region.
DEAC Riga data centre is an attractive location for international companies as an outsourcing centre, data back office and IT function consolidation due to its IT team’s expertise and excellent qualification.
The new data centre 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, ensuring a minimum level of service availability of 99.98%. The new data centre will be a 10 MW facility that will achieve international Tier III certification. DEAC will use on-site solar panels, will be powered entirely by renewable energy and use backup power provided by MY Neste Diesel.
“Together with the data center operator DLC, DEAC offers two primary locations in Riga and Vilnius and is quickly growing to become the Baltics’ most significant and comprehensive data center network,” comments Quaero Capital managing partner Sebastien Bourget.
“This is an incredible opportunity to build a new data center that meets companies’ needs while also caring for our environment,” DEAC’s CEO, Andris Gailitis, agrees.
DEAC is one of the largest independent green energy data center 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.
