The former military underground network of tunnels was transformed into a modern data center. The facility in Pori provides excellent prerequisites for security and scalability for your cloud solutions.
The underground tunnel facility was quarried by the Finnish Defense forces in the 1960s. Verne Global Finland transformed the vacant facility into a modern and secure data center. The facility is comprised of nine separate tunnel halls. The premises fully support both shared data center spaces, as well as fully customized dedicated data center spaces.
Thanks to its origin nature as a bedrock facility, the underground data center provides built-in security enhanced with modern technical solutions. Each tunnel hall is independent from each other, allowing customers to have two entirely independent data centers in the same premises.
Powered by 100% green energy. In addition to utilizing wind power, the data center has its own 2600m2 solar power plant. Plus, the bedrock reduces the need for cooling, improving the energy efficiency of the data center.
Direct liquid cooling has been integrated into the facility and it is fully operational. Please enquire more details or a tour to explore the deployment.
The data center, as with all our data facilities, has been built to guarantee high availability at all times. Generators and a separate UPS system ensure the reliability of the power supply. Cooling is based on direct free cooling.
