The Air is located in Helsinki. Built from the ground up with scalability, sustainability, and security always at the forefront.
Data center utilizing the latest technical innovations in cooling, active fire protection and heat reuse.
The data center has been built to guarantee high availabity at all times. Carrier neutral, SDN based connectivity to connect all major cloud providers.
Completely water free state-of-the-art fire protection system ensures that the SLA is protected at all times. The solution monitors the data center and when it detects even the smallest smoke particles, the oxygen levels are lowered in stages, preventing damage to people and assets as well as protecting data and service levels.
The Air utilizes combined energy and cooling cells (CECC) that offer an energy efficient and low PUE solution. Cooling is based on free cooling taking advantage of the cool Finnish climate. The Cell-based design allows adaptive scalability, as CECC units can be fitted as the capacity grows. The units are independent, and the availability is not affected by malfunction of a single unit.
The Air uses 100% green energy and utilizes waste heat reuse, recycling the heat generated by servers for the district heating network. Finland's cool climate can be taken advantage of in data center cooling and the pre-existing large district heating network makes it easy to input new sources of industrial heat to the network.
