Germany : DEUTSCHE TELEKOM launches largest data center in GERMANY

July 14, 2014

Deutsche Telekom's corporate customer division, T-Systems, has launched its largest data center in Germany.

Located in Biere, near Magdeburg, construction of the state-of-the-art facility took nearly 18 months and it offers 5,400 square meters of space (approx. 58,000 square feet) for around 30,000 servers, and could be expanded to almost 40,000 square meters.

In Magdeburg, Telekom operates a T-Systems data center, which is almost identically like the one opened in Biere. Both the data centers will work as twins, storing data in parallel, so that even if one of them goes offline, the data can always be accessed via its twin.

Presently, T-Systems employs around 750 staff in Magdeburg and the construction of the twin data center will generate 30 new jobs in Magdeburg and 100 jobs in Biere.

Tim Hottges, CEO of Deutsche Telekom said, We are investing in Germany as a center of IT business because German data protection standards are highly valued. Our customers now have a "High-Tech Fort Knox" from a cloud provider they trust fully. IT made in Germany is in demand. We would be very pleased if the political framework continues to make ambitious IT projects possible in Germany.
