As of October 1 EcoDataCenter will be established in Stockholm, through the acquisition of two of the region's most modern and energy-efficient data center facilities.
EcoDataCenter establishes a strong position in Stockholm by acquiring two of the region's most sustainable and modern data center facilities. EcoDataCenter thus complements its offer with accessible and secure data center services within the Stockholm area.
Stockholm location will enable smart city applications
“The two facilities in Stockholm give us completely new opportunities when it comes to helping companies to convert to a greener digitization. Our customers can choose to place their latency demanding equipment in Stockholm and use our data center in Falun for bigger data volumes. This might be the springboard that facilitates the customer’s first step towards increased sustainability within IT since the level of sustainability we offer in Falun simply cannot be achieved in Stockholm. In addition, we all have a responsibility to relieve the electricity networks in the Stockholm region due to the electricity shortage that prevails. This will become even more noticeable in the transition to a more modern and sustainable society”, says Magnus Angermund Chief Marketing Officer at EcoDataCenter.
Three sites, each with specific focus
EcoDataCenter has three data center sites, each with a specific focus. The data center in Falun is the world's first climate-positive data center, with extremely high levels of capacity and security. The sites in Piteå offer data center operation in northern Sweden, which is a well-known region for data centers, while the two new centers in Stockholm enable services requiring the least possible latency; such as smart city applications, IoT, 5G, etc. The Stockholm sites also make it easier for companies and authorities within the region that strive to improve sustainability when it comes to IT.
