Under the terms of the agreement which was signed in September 2009, the IBM technology services team is responsible for the initial planning and risk analysis of the centre. The next phase of the project involves the design and construction, including the complete networking and electrical system, emergency power supply and cooling system.
Miroslav Majoros, president and CEO of Slovak Telekom, said: “IBM is a partner which, thanks to its wealth of experience in data centres and Green IT, is helping us to strengthen our position in the field of complex telecommunication solutions.”
Roman Brestovansky, general manager at IBM Slovakia, said: “Adopting a green approach helps companies reduce costs and energy usage and unleash resources for business growth. The facility we will build for Slovak Telekom will perfectly combine ecology and economy helping our client to reap the benefits of lower costs and improved sustainability.”
