September 20, 2022 – LONDON – Verne Global, the Iceland-based sustainable data center provider for high-intensity computing, has announced that Volta Data Centers, located in the City of London, will begin to market and operate under the Verne Global brand, providing a central hub covering Iceland and the UK.
Verne Global said its Northern Europe data center platform gives organizations the flexibility to locate their workloads and applications between two fully optimized sites. Based in London, the Volta Data Center connects to network and cloud providers, making it “the perfect location for latency-sensitive workloads that need to stay close to London’s business, financial and media hubs. “, Verne said.
Verne Global’s data center campus in Iceland is optimized for high-intensity computing. Powered by 100% renewable energy and benefiting from year-round free air cooling, it offers sustainable, predictable and affordable data center solutions for organizations looking to reduce the carbon footprint and cost of their operations. In 2023, the campus will have 40 MW of built capacity, out of a possible 100 MW on this initial site.
“With two complementary, best-in-class data centers, we can now offer enterprises more choice in where their applications reside,” said Dominic Ward, CEO of Verne Global. “Our experience suggests that less than 10% of workloads need to be in metropolitan areas, with the rest possibly located anywhere in the world. Yet, historically, many organizations place all of their applications in one place, often in locations with severe space and power constraints, or inappropriate cost profiles. We help organizations take a new approach, distributing their applications across sites to optimize performance, reduce costs and limit their impact on the environment. »
The new, expanded Verne Global team will focus on providing consistent, industry-leading support and outline plans to implement engineering design best practices to optimize performance and minimize downtime. environmental impact of its two sites. James Chenery, Director of Sales, Finance for Verne Global, will assume the role of Head of London to lead all activities for the London site.
Both Verne Global and Volta are part of Triple Point’s Digital 9 Infrastructure plc (D9) portfolio of critical digital infrastructure assets that are focused on building a more resilient, sustainable, inclusive and accessible Internet.
Thor Johnsen, head of Triple Point’s Digital 9 Infrastructure plc, commented: “This is another great example of convergence value creation in our portfolio. Verne Global’s data center assets represent some of the cleanest and least polluted data centers in the world. Volta is one of the best connected data centers in central London with customers continuing to seek low latency access in key centralized locations. We’re excited about the long-term opportunities among existing enterprise customers to optimize data center utilization across the platform, balancing Volta’s low-latency metro access with the costs of predictable energy and sustainability benefits of Verne Global.
