Microsoft's third Finnish data centre to be built in Vichti

Technology giant promotes digitalisation in the Nordics!

The aim is to create a “data hub” around the metropolitan area with several data centres operating independently but supporting each other. According to the company, this initiative will drive the digitalisation of Finland. Microsoft is expected to generate more than SEK 17 billion and create more than 11,000 new jobs in Finland over a four-year period with partners and customers. This is the result of a study by analyst firm IDC.

“Data centres enable companies, universities and research institutes to use cloud data more effectively for innovation, digitisation and data-driven growth”

says Mervi Ahonen, Director of Microsoft Finland in a press release.

Cloud service customers in 140 countries

The construction of the data centre will start once the detailed planning is available and the permitting processes are completed. For Vichti, this is the largest private investment in the history of the municipality.

The new Finnish data centre is part of Microsoft’s global cloud services infrastructure. This includes over 60 data centre areas with a total of over 200 data halls. The company has more than 1 billion cloud service customers in 140 countries.
