Colocation in Finland: Case LiquidNet Ltd

The attractiveness of Nordic countries in terms of data centers have been in the discussion already a while. A naturally cool environment, stable political and geographical conditions lure investors, companies and customers.

LiquidNet Ltd is one of those who saw the potential and the favourable conditions in Finland. Having multiple hosting locations, adding Finland to one of them became a current topic to reach customers in Northern Europe and Russia. LiquidNet‘s product Free Reseller Program allows its customers to set up a hosting business with a low budget. Offering a range of locations from which customers can choose the best suitable for them is crucial.

Gateway to Russia and Scandinavia

Plans to expand to Russian, Northern European and Scandinavian markets triggered the need to find a colocation data center near to these markets. Finland offers the best location for this with good geographical location, affordable, green energy prices and fast and competitively priced connections, states co-owner and CEO of LiquidNet, Kalin Blaskoff.

Settling to one of the tunnels in Ficolo’s bedrock data center was driven by these factors. Ficolo’s location and facilities combine excellent energy efficiency and usage of green energy was an important aspect for us, Kalin Blaskoff explains. The security solutions are first-class but foremost important factor to our clients are connections – connections routed directly to end customers through operator’s network. Great customer service and competitive prices, summarizes Blaskoff the service, and continues that from this perspective it will be easy to continue the cooperation.
