In earlier news, the German provider of data center services, Hetzner Online GmbH, announced of the earthworks starting at the site of their future data center park in Tuusula, Finland. The northern climate conditions, Finland’s geographically favourable location between Eastern and Western Europe, and the economical electricity prices made Finland the ideal address for the next Hetzner home.
