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.
