Hetzner, a fast-growing hosting provider from Germany with international operations, has expanded the capacity at its data center campus in the Helsinki area in Finland, by adding a new facility. The new data center is expected to be completed and operational by early 2022. There will be a total of 10 data centers in Hetzner’s Data Center Park Helsinki after construction is done.
Tens of thousands of dedicated servers and/or cloud servers can be housed in a single data center operated by Hetzner. Technical personnel will be on site 24/7/365 in the new facility in the Helzinki area, as with the other data centers.
In addition, Hetzner has already laid the basis for two fully new data center units at its data center park in Finland, as well as storage and social amenities. The first data center units are expected to open in early 2023.
“The events from last year accelerated our growth, and as a result, we almost doubled our headcount,” said Riikka Huhtaniitty, People Operations Manager at Hetzner Finland. “We will be able to recruit new employees as soon as the new data centers become operational. We estimate that we will double our headcount over the next few years. As the number of servers grows, the need for talented new team members will also increase, especially for IT technicians who will ensure that our machines remain operational around the clock.”
Develop Up To 20 Data Centers
Hetzner’s Data Center Park Helsinki will include a total of 10 data centers after construction is done. On its 150,000 square meter location, Hetzner Finland wants to develop up to 20 data centers. Hetzner Online, meantime, has also been developing its data center parks in Germany over the previous few years.
Hetzner Finland now employs 40 individuals in IT, construction, electrical engineering, property management, and office administration. In a short period of time, the number of employees at Hetzner Finland has expanded by a third. In addition, the corporation employs dozens of people indirectly in a variety of industries, from engineering to transportation.
