Three new clients have been announced at the newly opened Verne Global data center located at the Asbru Enterprise Park in Keflavik, Iceland. The clients are IT service provider Opin Kerfi, leading game developer CCP Games, and carbon-neutral service provider GreenQloud.
IT service provider Opin Kerfi is taking space in the data center for its hosting requirements as it has been selected as Verne Global’s preferred systems integrator. Opin Kerfi’s CEO, Gunnar Gudjonsson explained, “Our rich history, dedicated IT support team and established relationships with leading solution providers such as HP, Microsoft, Cisco and others will help ensure that Verne Global’s customers have the support needed to succeed.”
The creator of the EVE Online virtual world, CCP Games, chose Verne Global based on the site’s renewable power grid and strategic location between its two primary markets. Furthermore, a key factor is Verne Global’s ability to offer fixed power pricing for extended contracts.
“The primary reason for selecting Verne Global above all other alternative sites were the availability and predictability of power and the option of securing long-term price guarantees at attractive price levels,” explained CCP’s IT Director, Ingvar Bjarnason.
GreenQloud, the carbon-neutral service provider, has chosen the Verne Global Iceland data center to host its services due to the data center being situated perfectly between the European and North America markets.
The new data center uses Iceland’s vast supply of hydroelectric and geothermal energy, and also takes advantage of the country’s cool climate, which allows for free cooling all year round. Modular specialist Colt customised the data center’s hall design, equipping it with cooling modules that allow to cool servers using air from outside the data center.
Verne Global offers a 100% carbon neutral and affordable power solution that has unparalleled pricing predictability, a range of server density options and efficiency without extra expense, using natural cooling.
