The German cloud is growing: Expansion work on the cloud data center in Biere, Deutsche Telekom's largest and most state-of-the-art data center, is on schedule. The topping-out ceremony marks the halfway point of the construction work. Three further data center modules are being built on the campus to allow an additional 90 petabytes of data storage to be made available, more than doubling the site's cloud capacity. The new modules are scheduled to begin operation in summer 2018.
