Sparkle, owned by Italian operator TIM, announced that its data center in Yenibosna has expanded by 300 square meters and power consumption is reduced by 14%. Capacity Eurasia is the first green data center in Turkey, thanks to its energy-efficient power and cooling systems. According to Sparkle’s announcement, the data center is completely restructured with an additional 300 square meters of white-space area and cooling capacity is increased by 40%.
The data center is located in the western suburb area of Istanbul and it is served by Sparkle’s tier 1-grade global IP transit service Seabone. Updates also include medium and low voltage transformers, generators, uninterruptible power supplies, and batteries and most importantly a new cooling system that lowers power consumption drastically.
Sparkle also stated:
“Today data centers consume more than 2% of the world’s electricity, requiring the implementation of more efficient technologies able to meet the growing demand for services while decreasing energy consumption. It is one of the largest and most important open colocation facilities in Turkey, featuring advanced technologies and sophisticated monitoring systems.”
