Tieto sets up the world's first data-driven sauna

(PresseBox) ( Regensburg, )
Feel the heat from data in the world’s first data-driven sauna. By utilising excess heat from data centre servers together with the latest technology, sauna goers can muster up a good sweat when people all around the world are surfing the web, searching databases and using cloud services.

The Finnish-Swedish company Tieto stays true to the legacy of the sauna tradition and never misses an opportunity to slip out of the costume and into the sauna. On April 1st, the company will inaugurate the world´s first data-driven saunas at their Nordic data centres in Stockholm, Helsinki and Stavanger. The sauna named AiSauna is launched in connection with Finland´s 100-year anniversary which is celebrated throughout the year 2017.

“The amount of data stored and processed in our data centres increases rapidly. We now want to combine Finnish tradition, data from our Nordic customers and the latest technology to create something unique that contributes to a warmer society and a completely new level of digital customer experience”, says Alicia Turing, data scientist and sauna architect at Tieto.

Tieto stores and processes data from hundreds of customers in the public and private sector. Servers generate up to 45 MWh of excess heat each day, which would be able to heat up to 2510 data-driven saunas for 2 hours every day (approx. 18 kWh required per sauna) around the Nordics.

“A sauna is more than a place to sweat in. Numerous problems and decisions have also been resolved there. By integrating artificial intelligence into the experience, taking notes and analyzing the conversation, we enable sauna enthusiasts to combine business with pleasure. The aim is to pave the way for truly data-driven decision making in the future worklife”, says Alicia Turing.

Tieto guarantees that the heat from the data is free from all forms of viruses, malign code or cyberthreats.
