atNorth, a leading pan-Nordic colocation, high-performance computing and Artificial Intelligence service provider, has announced that it has reached a definitive agreement to acquire two data centre facilities in Finland from Advania. This acquisition will fuel atNorth’s expansion in the region, as the company also looks to build a third site in Finland.
atNorth’s decarbonising platform powers the world’s largest organisations, delivering environmentally responsible, power-efficient, cost-optimised and high-performance computing solutions as a service for high-density, data-heavy IT workloads.
The company will take over the operations and management of the two data centres, acquiring the sites and talent from Advania to continue running the facilities in a high-performing, scalable way to service existing customers at the highest level.
These facilities will be added to atNorth’s fast-growing solutions portfolio of data centre facilities across the Nordics. An expert team of atNorth data centre specialists will oversee the process to ensure a smooth transition with uninterrupted operations and seamless service.
“We are happy to launch atNorth’s operations in Finland,” said Eyjólfur Magnús Kristinsson, CEO, atNorth. “It is a part of our growth strategy to grow and expand our services sustainably and strategically across the Nordics. As organisations increasingly move IT workloads to the Nordics, the investment into this region is critical for atNorth to continue to support our customers in a sustainable, efficient manner. We are proud to invest into the region and Finnish data centre industry with this acquisition, as we prepare to expand further into the region.”Click below to share this article
