European Commissioner for Digital Economy and Society Günther H. Oettinger, Luxembourg’s Prime Minister Xavier Bettel and Minister for Home Affairs, for the Civil Service and Administrative Reform, Dan Kersch inaugurated the European Commission’s new datacentre in Betzdorf, Luxembourg.

Ahead of the event, Commissioner Oettinger said: “Thanks to a fruitful collaboration with the Luxembourg authorities, the Commission is today opening a world class datacentre to ensure its IT infrastructure which is operating EU and pan-European Information systems, is modern, reliable and cost-efficient.”

The datacentre will be housing more than 1400 information systems such as the pan-European systems supporting the Single Market, climate policy, health and food safety or structural funds. It will also house internal systems, which help run the Commission’s administration, such as its financial and HR systems.

The Betzdorf datacentre will be a datacentre of the future enhanced by cloud services. It is energy efficient, flexible, agile and secure at the same time. The move to the Betzdorf datacentre completes the Commission’s move out of the old Jean Monnet building where asbestos had been detected in 2014. Thanks to this move, the consolidation of the Commission’s datacentres will be made easier by including more than 30 local data rooms in two professional Luxembourg-based Tier-4 datacentres. This consolidation will on the one hand improve the reliability and security of EU information systems and data, and on the other hand reduce business continuity risks and save resources.
