Techtonic, a new Israeli firm, announced that it will build a new high powered data center in the Brosh industrial zone in Beit Shemesh at a cost of $140 million. The firm said that the center, to be called TITAN4, would be “missile proof,” which is especially important since the Gaza based Hamas terrorist group has missiles capable of reaching that part of Israel.

The new center will be one of the largest in Israel at 15,000 square meters (161,000 square feet). It will also use a massive amount of energy at 16 MW – 2×16 MVA electrical capacity: a main power supply and backup power supply, offering customers a capacity of 10.5 MW IT. Techtonich expects the project to be completed in mid-2025.

Founded in 2021 by CEO Gad Benett, an experienced software engineer and high-tech entrepreneur Director of Planning Dan Schleider, Adam Benett, who oversees marketing, and Eliel Schleider, who is in charge of procurement and licensing, Techtonic boasts that they bring together” technological progress and an understanding of the needs to protect against military threats.”

In a posting on LinkedIn, Techtonic said the new hosting site is called TITAN4 and will boast the highest levels of site shielding and redundancy in the world upon completion. It will be the only data center in Israel to have a TIER IV certification for planning and construction, issued by UPTIME INSTITUTE.

Techtonic added that the facility will be protected against war threats, i.e., can sustain a direct long-range missile hit. In addition, its 2N dual system configuration “guarantees continuous maintenance and operation, even in extreme cases.”

Gad Benett, founder, and CEO of Techtonic said: “The accelerated migration to the cloud has created vast demand for data centers. Yet many organizations still have doubts about physical safety, especially when it comes to highly exposed above-ground data centers. In response, Techtonic’s data center will be a secure, fortified underground hosting facility and among the most advanced in the country.”

Eliel Schleider, who oversees procurement and licensing at Techtonic, added: “Despite the tough competition for electricity allocation, our advanced planning stage allowed us to receive the connection approval for two electricity lines (mainline and backup) of 16MW. As a result, we are able to proceed quickly in the construction of the data center. We are proud to play a key role in building Israel’s most fortified and safe private data center, and set a new standard of security and quality.”
