NetIX partner, Neterra, opens second data centre building in Sofia's city centre
Built due to high demand, this new state of the art facility is the company's fourth data centre
Sofia, Bulgaria - 16th June 2022: NetIX's partner company, Neterra - a leading global connectivity and full range telecom solution provider - has officially opened Sofia Data Center 2 (SDC 2) – a second data centre building in the capital of Bulgaria. It is located next to the company's first data center in Sofia - SDC 1.
New customers of SDC 2 will benefit from all the advantages of the already built business and telecommunications infrastructure in SDC 1: connectivity with all existing customers of Neterra, access to high-speed, secure, and reserved international networks and routes, and access to NetIX - home of the award-winning Global Internet Exchange (GIX).
"Neterra's new data centre is an important link in the critical infrastructure of Bulgaria and Southeast Europe. This is one of the places where the networks of Western telecom operators connect to the Middle East and Asia. Neterra's importance in this chain of security has always been highly valued," said Neven Dilkov, Neterra's founder and CEO.
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.
The SDC 2 building (as well as SDC 1) is designed specifically for the data center according to the requirements of the Tier III Uptime Institute. This standard guarantees the continuity of work and services. Any planned maintenance activities can be performed without disrupting the operation of customer equipment.
The new data centre has an area of over 1,400 square meters. The building is on 4 levels, with 2 MW of installed capacity and provides 100% redundancy of services and connectivity, round-the-clock security, uninterruptible power supply and air conditioning, on-site maintenance, and security.
Neterra 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 will reduce their costs thanks to the lower electricity consumption of the data center systems.
Neterra has its own data centers in two other Bulgarian locations: Stolnik (20 minutes from Sofia) and Ruse (closde to the Romanian border).
In an analysis of the global data centre market from 2022, Neterra is recognized as one of the key investors in data centres in the region of Central and Eastern Europe.
