Caverion's control room operators will work at the data centre and be responsible for the operations of the facility 24/7, every day of the year. The control room operators will monitor the operations and react to potential changes according to an agreed-upon model. In addition, professionals in building systems have been trained in data centre operations and will act on duty in case of any emergency work.

Caverion is also responsible for maintaining the technical systems of the building and for monitoring warranty-period systems and warranty maintenance.

All heat generated at Helsinki Data Center will be collected and the collected heat can be used to heat up to 10,000 households. The data centre meets TIER 3 class reliability requirements and high security classifications. The planned IT capacity of the centre is 24 MW and its initial capacity will be at least 6 MW.
