UpCloud's expansion continues with its 11th data centre, in Warsaw, Poland. Its plans for international growth, enabled by the €18m investment secured in January 2020, will include ten new data centres around the globe. The company is also looking for new employees in all their offices in Helsinki, London, Seattle and Singapore.
Europe is one of UpCloud's most significant markets, it says, with centres in Helsinki, London, Frankfurt, Amsterdam and Madrid. The latest addition to UpCloud's data centres will ensure even better service and support to customers located in Central Europe, it says.
"We wanted to open an availability zone specifically in Warsaw, since we have seen so many incredible companies coming from there. We want to support them even more by bringing the new data centre closer," says UpCloud's founder and CTO Joel Pihlajamaa.
The PL-WAW1 is UpCloud's 11th data centre and 7th in Europe. It is situated in new facilities in the Equinix IBX WA3 Data Center which opened in March 2020. Once completed, the entire data centre platform will be supplied with 100% renewable energy from the wind. The Warsaw data centre is also running on the AMD EPYC processor architecture.
