Hetzner Online Invests in Baltic Sea Cable to Finland
Hetzner Online is investing in a 1,100 km long deep sea cable from Rostock to the capital of Finland, Helsinki. The fiber optic link is expected to be put into operation in the spring of 2016. Finland is well situated geographically and is therefore one of the most important connections between Eastern and Western Europe.
Hetzner Online will be using a part of the fiber optic cable for fast and secure connectivity from its present data centers to Scandinavian countries in future, thereby taking greater control over the quality of its data transmission.
The whole system will provide a total transmission capacity of 15 terabits per second and will play a key role in providing reliable and secure broadband connections for cloud and data center applications.
For Hetzner Online the new sea cable provides a broadband and latency optimised connection between a future data center location in the Nordic region and the Central European Internet infrastructure in Frankfurt.
