DEAC, a cloud and IT services company that serves northern Europe, is building a $10.78 million data center in Riga, Latvia.
The move will double the capacity of DEAC's data centers.
"After more than 10 years of experience in foreign markets, we have achieved recognition as a secure and premium service provider on a regional scale,"
Andris Gailitis, DEAC CEO, said. "We have also succeeded in positioning Riga as one of the most attractive places for data storage in Europe. We are developing our infrastructure to provide customized, complex IT solutions and unlimited infrastructure capacity for fast growing projects on a world-class level."
The new data center is expected to be operational next year.
"The new facility will offer 4MW (megawatts) of critical IT load to 400 server racks and feature excellent energy efficiency using state-of-the-art technologies designed according to EN50600 standard Class 3 to meet demanding customer requirements, providing availability rate at a minimum of 99.98%," Gailitis said.
Gailitis also said that many CIS countries are an "unexplored market" when it comes to data-center services and that DEAC's expansion will provide "US companies with a bridge from Europe for further developing their business in Russia."
