The most recent NOS data centre is part of the company’s investment aimed at increasing current capacity by 50% by the end of 2018 to improve efficiency and meet the challenges of the digital society.
NOS has officially opened the Imopolis II data centre in Carnaxide, a building equipped with the most advanced technology and will significantly strengthen the support to its businesses and the operator’s business offer in relation to cloud and related services.
The data centre covers an area of around 1,000m² and has a floor space of 630m² of technical rooms in which computing systems and data storage will be located.
The NOS data centre complex has been the target of continuous investment by the operator to the tune of around €10m each year. NOS has forecast an increase in 2018 of 50% in the storage capacity of data and related services.
According to Jorge Graça, Board Director at NOS, “The new data centre is the most modern and efficient in Portugal and will increase the company’s capability to support its business activity and to provide service to its business customers in two areas that require data storage and which are seeing exponential growth: cloud and data analytics services.”
“In 2018, NOS will be increasing its installed capacity for data storage and related business services by 50%, with more new generation infrastructure to be announced soon,” added Jorge Graça, also NOS’ CTO.
