After 15 months of construction, Portugal Telecom on Monday officially launched the first phase of one of Europe's largest and greenest datacentres.
When complete, the €90m datacentre in the city of Covilhã will have a storage capacity of up to 30PB, 50,000 servers and four datacentre blocks across a total area of 75,000m².
According to Portugal Telecom, the new facility increases datacentre capacity in the country by more than 60 percent. The operator hopes to eventually consolidate its seven existing datacentres into the new Covilhã datacentre and an existing facility in Lisbon.
