Modular datacenter is easy to expand

CSC’s modular datacenter is built in the Renforsin Ranta business area. For the needs of CSC’s modular datacenter a 3,000 m2 area is reserved, in which the capacity of the first lot will be enough for thousands of servers and available power for the first phase will be 2MW.

Datacenter CSC Kajaani was in production use in 2012. CSC's new supercomputer and other CSC’s customer systems are placed in Kajaani. The datacenter is easy to be expanded in the future.

Cost-efficient solution – sustainable and green energy supply

CSC's datacenter aims for a near zero carbon footprint during its operational lifetime. The chosen technique is both eco- and cost-effective solution. Servers are cooled down with outside air and the primary means of electric power is hydropower-generated energy. The annual energy efficiency of the datacenter (PUE, Power Usage Efficiency) is estimated to be 1,15. PUE defines the ratio between the total energy consumption in datacenter servers and the energy consumed.
