Data center opens 368 days after the cornerstone ceremony!
September 17, 2019, Lupfig
Federal Councilor Guy Parmelin travelled to Lupfig to open Switzerland's first high-performance data center together with us. This underlines the significance of Switzerland as a data hub. The opening ceremony featured speeches, reports, anecdotes, a large number of smiling faces and some delicious food and drinks. Those in attendance took a tour around and marveled at the new data center. You can take a sneak peek at the emotional event in our photo gallery.
Around 300 people attending the opening ceremony, which was held in a separate tent. The festivities were accompanied by alphorn players, a band and a magician. A regional caterer ensured that everyone's appetites were sated by serving Swiss cuisine and surprised us with green welcome drinks as well as traditional dishes such as tripe and cabbage salad.
Special celebrations were dedicated to the project team, who were showered with thanks and paid tribute to. Architect Reto Meier said a few words on the construction phase and presented his team with sports t-shirts.
We are proud of the data center and are delighted to share the impressions from the event with you!
