The combination of Equinix and TelecityGroup will enable Equinix to further help companies accelerate business performance by connecting them to their customers and partners inside the world’s most networked data centres.
To celebrate the launch of Helsinki 6 and this new venture, we would be delighted if you would join us on the 29th September at the new data centre Helsinki 6. There will be presentations from Equinix Executives as well as the opportunity to hear and interact with local customers and partners. After these sessions you are invited to a data centre tour or you can enjoy networking with your peers, over drinks and canapés.
* This is a FREE to attend event, however, as places are limited and as we expect demand to be high we encourage you to register early.
Helsinki's geographical position means that it is one of the world's most northern capital cities, bridging the gap between Russia, the Baltic States and the rest of Europe. As such, Helsinki is now fast gaining the reputation in Europe as the gateway to Russia as well as a technology start-up hub. 80 per cent of all internet traffic between Western Europe and Russia goes through Helsinki.
Finland is known as a world-leader in ICT innovation. Helsinki houses vibrant electronics, manufacturing, hardware and software sectors, while its reputation of its media and telecommunications sub-sectors is also gaining global recognition.
Our Helsinki data centres are business hubs for 160+ companies. Helsinki customers can choose from a broad range of network services and can also interconnect directly to customers and partners in their digital supply chain.
Finland has long had a reputation for producing global mobile and IT companies such as Nokia, F-Secure and TeliaSonera. Helsinki is attracting digital gaming companies to a world-class entertainment and digital industry which includes the successful Rovio Entertainment, makers of Angry Birds.
With the official opening of this new location the Equinix Helsinki metropolitan area International Business Exchange™ (IBX®) data centres consist of six buildings with approximately 57,544 square feet (5,346 square metres) of colocation space.
