Colocation provider, atNorth, has announced that it has joined the Swedish Data Center Industry Association (SDIA), which aims to bring together the entire ecosystem around the fast-growing data centre industry in Sweden.
The SDIA is proactive in supporting its members and the development of the growing data centre industry by making sustainability issues a priority, encouraging and supporting research and innovation projects, and enabling the industry to grow.
atNorth’s Nordic Sales Director, Stefan Jofors-aTribe commented: “We are pleased to join our data centre colleagues in this very important organisation for our industry, as it is crucial to us that we are actively involved with influencing the industry’s development in the Swedish market. We have an enormous number of important industry-wide issues to work on resolving. Of course, sustainability is at the core of atNorth’s operations and will always be our priority. We are also keen to understand how we can support the rapid digitalisation of society through the construction of a functioning infrastructure.
“atNorth’s existing sites have been designed to operate with the lowest carbon footprint possible, with 100 per cent renewable energy, making them extremely energy efficient. So, with energy prices soaring in the UK and parts of Europe this is absolutely critical to the industry’s future and something that we are keen to influence”.
The SDIA brings together a number of key Swedish and international players currently active in the information technology ecosystem. atNorth is the latest member to join its fellow leading data centre operators, electricity suppliers, and data centre infrastructure providers.
“We are very happy that atNorth has chosen to become a member of the SDIA. Their experience of, and commitment to, our issues in combination with their greater knowledge of the international data centre industry will be a vital contribution to our business going forward,” commented Fredrik Lindahl, Account Manager at SDIA. “They are also an interesting example of the new generation of data centres, who have adapted to today’s very advanced calculations and simulations.”
