Sparkle, the Italian service provider, has announced the launch of Metamorfosis II, the first green data centre in Greece and one of the largest and most advanced in Europe. Located in Athens, in the industrial area of Metamorfosis, and adjacent to its Metamorfosis I facility, the new data centre has a maximum capacity of 700 racks and 7.7MW of total power.
According to the company, Metamorfosis II adopts the latest energy-efficient power and cooling systems available in the market resulting in a carbon footprint reduction of around 28,000 tons per year. The quality and energy excellence of the new data centre is confirmed by the Uptime Institute Tier III, the LEED Gold and the ISO 14001 certifications.
With this addition, Sparkle now operates four data centres in Greece: three in Athens and a fourth in Chania, with a total area of 14,000 sq m and 13.7MW of power.
All its facilities are fully integrated with Nibble, Sparkle’s pan-Mediterranean optical network, and with Sparkle’s Tier-1 global backbone Seabone, to deliver high speed connectivity services as well as access to major cloud providers.
