connectivity and security, back-up as well as restoring.

providers in Russia typically offer space rental and connectivity for
servers they do not own and manage themselves. Such centres are often
referred to as server hotels. Our new data centre supports Tieto's
strategic aims to expand in Russia. We are now able to serve our
Nordic as well as local customers in the North West Russia area with
the latest technology, highest reliability and proven service
concept. Company will hire new people this year in Russia. Tieto is
