DigiPlex to host HPE AI and HPC technology in Stockholm data centre


Nordic data centre firm DigiPlex has signed an agreement with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) to host AI and High-Performance Computing (HPC) technology in its Stockholm data centre.

The Stockholm campus is located close to Arlanda, the capital airport of Sweden, with the company claiming it runs on electricity from 100% renewable energy and offers 26,000 m² with up to 40 MW capacity.

Commenting on the deal, DigiPlex CEO, Wiljar Nesse said, “Situating these advanced technical solutions and services in strategically located facilities that not only conform to stringent data protection rules but also are powered by abundant low-cost, 100% sustainable energy helps HPE deliver on commitments to its clients as well as its sustainability agenda. I am pleased that DigiPlex is able to offer HPE this powerful combination.”

The company said the campus offers manned physical security including dual perimeter fencing, intruder protection and surveillance cameras.

“DigiPlex provides an excellent home for AI and HPC data needs, being scalable, of a high standard, and well connected to an ecosystem of potential partners,” added Anna Granö, Managing Director, HPE Sweden.

“Partnering with DigiPlex gives us the confidence that we have the right high-quality, truly sustainable and secure data centre to support our HPC and AI solutions for our clients.”

The Stockholm data centre has been operational since 2016 and Netnod, Sweden’s Internet exchange has extended its infrastructure to the data centre.

In October 2020, DigiPlex opened its fifth Norwegian data centre located in Holtskogen Business Park at Hobøl in Indre Østfold.

The company now operates seven data centres located in Norway, Sweden and Denmark.
