PlanNet21 to invest €20m in Dublin facilities and create 30 new jobs
14 July 2015
Irish technology firm PlanNet21 Communications is investing €20 million to build a data centre in Dublin, which will lead to the creation of 30 jobs by year-end.
The company is building a wholly owned 10,000-sq-ft data centre which will include 5,000 sq ft in business continuity or disaster recovery seating, space that the company can avail of in the case of a disaster on its own premises.
The Tier 3 data centre, which is designed to conform to the Uptime Institute Certification, will be Ireland’s lowest PUE (power usage effectiveness) data centre and will open its doors in November.
PlanNet2, with offices in Dublin, Cork, Galway, Belfast, San Francisco and France, is also relocating its headquarters to Citywest Business Campus, Dublin, in order to accommodate the increase in staff numbers.
As part of the expansion, the company is creating 30 jobs – largely in the engineering and professional services area – and total staff numbers will surpass the 100 mark by Christmas.
“This is going to take us to the next level in the Irish and European marketplace and we feel the time is right to reinvest in our business,” said PlanNet 21 CEO Peter Carroll.
Opened in 1998, the company is Ireland’s largest Cisco Gold Partner and services many of the top global clients across EMEA.http://www.engineersjournal.ie/2015/07/14/plannet21-invest-e20m-dublin-facilities-create-30-new-jobs/http://www.engineersjournal.ie/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/PlanNet211.pnghttp://www.engineersjournal.ie/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/PlanNet211-300x224.pngNewsCommunications,Dublin,ICT,jobs
