The very first Tier III centre in South East Europe.
Lamda Hellixs Athens-2 data centre in Greece became the first data centre in South East Europe to get the Uptime Institute’s Tier III Certification of Constructed Facility. The Greek data centre company, that celebrated 15 decades of operation in Sept this year, has two information centers around Athens, that provide services including colocation, business continuity, cloud and services.

Athens-2 started in 2015, and was extended with a further 1MW of IT power before in 2018.
It had been Europe’s first centre to get the LEED BD+C Gold & Tier III Design documents for efficiency, also won the DCD award for the service provider sector in 2016. The Tier III accreditation comes after a close collaboration with Uptime Institute through the design and construction process, and follows a week of assessments and also system demonstrations by Uptime engineers in the centre. The launching of Athens-2 coincided with the depths of the catastrophe that was Greek, Chief executive officer Apollos Kakkos told DCD on a visit to the website before this season: It wasn’t the optimal time for the opening of a data centre.
Lamda Hellix weathered the financial crisis and the capital control that companies capability to commit money. In Athens-2, we’re bring ability on in different stages, explained Kakkos. Two phases are open, and a 3rd phase will take Athens-2 at 6MW. It sits alongside the very first Lamda Hellix information centre, Athens-1, that has 3MW of ability in a construction originally planned as a cable landing station. The present building has sufficient space for just two to 3 years expansion, said Kakkos, and that the corporation could need additional capacity.
