t-systems, a German data center service company, is a subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom in charge of data center business. Today, the company announced that it had obtained a debt financing with a total value of more than 100million euros (about 120million US dollars) to support the expansion of Germany's largest data center phase II project. It is reported that the investor of this round of financing is an investment consortium composed of three German banks

according to a statement issued by KfW IPEX bank in the consortium, the data center under construction by T-Systems is located in bire, Germany. The project was started in 2014 and is now nearing completion. It has the capacity to accommodate about 30000 servers. The financing will be used for the second phase expansion project of the data center, which is expected to be completed in 2018. At that time, the entire data center will be able to accommodate more than 45000 servers

the bank did not disclose the specific amount of this debt financing, but only said that it must exceed 100million euros. The other two financial institutions involved in this financing are Bayern lb of Germany and Baden of Germany, which will provide 1billion euros to Landesbank Baden-W rttemberg in 10 years. It is worth mentioning that the phase I project of T-Systems data center is also jointly invested by the three banks

kfw IPEX bank said that at present, German enterprises' demand for data center services is growing day by day. Especially since Edward Snowden leaked the data monitoring door of the US National Security Agency, more and more German enterprises hope that the steel price will continue to be depressed and their important data will be stored in the actual physical storage. However, what is ironic is that it basically offsets the annual decline of domestic apparent steel consumption. According to the documents leaked by Snowden, there are also German intelligence officials cooperating with US intelligence agencies to collect and share metadata from German networks

compared with other countries, Germany has stricter regulatory requirements on data privacy and physical address of data storage. Especially since Snowden broke out the monitoring door of the US National Security Agency in 2013, many US cloud service providers have chosen German data centers, including Amazon AWS, VMware and digital ocean

last year, Microsoft also announced that they would choose T-Systems Tesla. It is estimated that in 2016, only one company will need more lithium batteries than the current global 3C market lithium battery company to provide cloud services in Germany. Microsoft even appointed T-Systems as its data custodian in an unusual arrangement, allowing the German company to fully take over and control its stored Microsoft customer data. In fact, this move is a strong response of Microsoft to the U.S. government, because the U.S. government had pressured Microsoft to hand over the private data of a Microsoft cloud service customer stored in the Dublin data center in the Irish capital (the customer may be involved in a criminal investigation in the United States). Microsoft believes that the government's jurisdiction cannot be extended to overseas data storage, and the two sides are also suing in the U.S. court

Microsoft appoints T-Systems as the data custodian, which means that customer data stored in Germany will not be regulated by the U.S. government, because German companies are not bound by U.S. laws. At present, T-Systems uses the data centers in Magdeburg and Frankfurt to provide cloud service infrastructure services for Microsoft. According to the company, the bire data center under construction will provide backup support services for Magdeburg data center
