Ficolo operates three sustainable data centres, which are located in Finland. Both companies are part of Triple Point's Digital 9 Infrastructure portfolio.
Adding Ficolo’s sustainable data centre sites to the Verne Global portfolio
Ficolo brings 23 MW of available data centre capacity to the Verne Global portfolio, with the potential to expand to 90 MW across its three sites - located in Helsinki, Pori and Tampere.
“Ficolo’s three campuses add significant capacity to the joint Verne Global data centre platform; together – and with D9’s backing – we are in a strong position to satisfy growing demand for sustainable and predictably priced data centre services, including from the hyperscalers,” commented Dominic Ward, CEO of Verne Global.
“Working together under one brand will benefit Ficolo’s many international and domestic customers as they can make use of the new platform’s broader portfolio of services offered in Iceland and London. And of course, Verne Global customers can now tap into Ficolo’s offering,” added Seppo Ihalainen, CEO and Co-Founder of Ficolo.
All three of Ficolo’s sites are powered by 100% sustainable energy, including power from Ficolo’s own solar power generation facility. What’s more, the sites also distribute surplus heat to district heating networks. As such, they will be a great aid to Verne Global’s sustainability targets.
“In addition to being able to offer our customers the choice of four Nordic locations – all built with sustainability at their core – Ficolo’s expertise in hybrid cloud-based infrastructure services enables us to provide organisations with even more flexibility over how their applications are managed and supported,” Ward added.
“We continue to drive convergence across the D9 portfolio investments and we will leverage the shared opportunities across our Nordic data centre portfolio. Operating Ficolo under the Verne Global brand is one such step,” said Thor Johnsen, Head of Triple Point’s Digital 9 Infrastructure.
“Offering a range of data centre locations across the Nordics and in our low latency locations in metropolitan areas is driving a low-carbon, cost-optimised private cloud and performance computing solutions for our customers. Our holistic approach to the global digital infrastructure landscape is providing us unique opportunities for further investment and innovative end-to-end solutions for customers which are fully renewable and sustainable.”
