The team of international IT-project called Boosteroid started implementing its ambitious idea to create a powerful personal cloud computer available for everyone.
The project will allow to carry out different tasks that require a lot of computing power and will be useful for a number of users from gamers to research institutions. In the beginning of February, 2018 Boosteroid makes an important step towards this goal starting the construction of the biggest data center in Europe in the free industrial zone of Kutaisi (Georgia).
According to Boosteroid founder Ivan Shvaichenko, the idea to create a cloud services platform reflects the growing demand for cloud services.
“AI-researches, machine learning development, creation of new materials and medicine, vehicles and jet engines modelling – all this things require more and more computing power, – noted CEO. – If we want to provide our services worldwide, we do have to build data centers closer to the clients. Last December we launched a data center in Ukraine and now we start building our second data center in the free industrial zone of Kutaisi”.
Overall area of the new data center is 20 thousand sq. m., electricity connection provides 30 MW, initial financing is more than $100 million USD. This data center will allow the company to provide their services for Eastern Europe and Turkey.
The agreement with Georgian government to locate data centers in the country and to connect them to local power grid was reached back in October and November, 2017.
“We see this business gaining popularity day by day. The market expands rapidly every year and provides development opportunities for different branches of the economy both at the regional and state level”, – noted Deputy Minister of Economy and Sustainable Development of Georgia Giorgi Cherkhezishvili.
In the first half of 2018 the team starts building more data centers in the Arab Emirates and Iceland. This will allow to provide services for Europe, a part of Asia and the Middle East. In late 2018 it is planned to locate data centers in Canada and the USA to provide cloud computing services for North and Central America by 2019.
