The aim is to update the data center with state-of-theart technology within a few weeks, preparing previously unused data center space for use by customers in need of additional capacity. The modernisation of the maincubes data center started on 21st October and is expected to be completed by March 2017. Prompted by a high demand from local companies and international corporations alike, in the long run maincubes plans to make up to 4,500m2 of space available. Another important part of the modernisation is the consolidation of the data center space, which will be increased by means of a greater power density. Maincubes will install the necessary power supply, cable trays, cooling components and more efficient technology for the internet connection in accordance with demands in terms of size and performance. The latest cooling technology will be utilised to create higher power density and cut costs, whilst still providing customers with maximum data performance.
