EcoDataCenter has been selected as a partner in a six-year agreement regarding colocation services for High Performance Computing (HPC.) The agreement includes 4MW high-density colocations which will be delivered from EcoDataCenters’ facility in Falun.

EcoDataCenter has successfully operated HPC for the BMW Group in the data centre in Piteå (formerly Fortlax Datacenter) for the past four years and has now gained renewed trust after a period of fierce competition with other Nordic data centre players. Important criteria in the procurement have been technical credibility, which will ensure the operation of BMW Group’s HPC, together with high safety and, above all, a strong focus on sustainability.

“We are very happy and proud to have won this contract with BMW. The fact that BMW chooses us as a partner proves that we have an offer that attracts customers with very high demands. It feels good to be able to support BMW secure its HPC operations and at the same time strengthen its sustainability profile within IT,” said Magnus Angermund, CMO EcoDataCenter.

EcoDataCenter has a goal to become the largest data centre player in the Nordic market. This journey began in 2014 in a conscious effort with the planning and construction of the data centre in Falun that would be safer and more sustainable than any other data centre. Today, it is the world’s first climate-positive data centre.

“We see a clearly increasing demand for sustainable data centres. EcoDataCenter is very well positioned to receive more customers with the same high demands as BMW. With our highly skilled team and our fantastic facilities, I look forward to the future. Our journey has just begun,” said Lars Schedin, CEO of EcoDataCenter.
