Connectivity and data center service provider, Neterra, has officially opened its second data center building in Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria.

The new Tier III data center has an area of over 1,400 square meters across 4 building levels with a total of 2MW power capacity, Neterra also assures customers of 100% redundancy of services and connectivity, round-the-clock security, uninterruptible power supply and air conditioning, on-site maintenance, and security at the new facility.

“Neterra’s new data center 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, founder and CEO of Neterra.

Named Sofia Data Center 2 (SDC 2), the new data center is located next to Neterra’s first data center in Sofia – SDC 1. Hence, new customers of SDC 2 are expected to have access the operational business and telecommunications infrastructure in SDC 1.
