Connectivity and telecom solution provider Neterra has officially opened its Sofia Data Centre 2 (SDC 2), a second data centre building in the capital of Bulgaria. It is located next to the company's first data centre in Sofia, SDC 1.
Neterra's new data centre is described as an important link in the critical infrastructure of Bulgaria and Southeast Europe. This is one of the places, says Neterra, where the networks of Western telecom operators connect to the Middle East and Asia.
Neterra says that over 90% of international telecom operators that manage traffic globally (so-called Tier I providers) have already chosen Neterra and SDC 1 as their official point of presence. SDC 2 customers will also be connected to them.
First announced in April 2021, the four-storey building offers 2MW of installed capacity across 1,400 square metres and is built to Tier III Uptime standards.
Neterra says that the facility also provides 100% redundancy of services and connectivity, round-the-clock security, uninterruptible power supply and air conditioning, on-site maintenance, and security.
In addition, Neterra has designed SDC 2 with the latest generation of energy-efficient air conditioning systems. The benefits of this are both for the environment and for Neterra's customers, who, says the company, will reduce their costs thanks to the lower electricity consumption of the data centre systems.
Neterra has data centres in two other Bulgarian locations: Stolnik (20 minutes from Sofia) and Ruse (near the border with Romania).
