Hydro66, the largest colocation data center in Northern Sweden, today announces a new operations services partnership with Office, a Swedish full service IT-consultancy.
– It is an important strategic partnership for us. We are in a rapid expansion phase as the enterprise market recognises our value proposition of highly efficient data center capacity. This leads to an increased need for technical operations to support our enterprise clients. Office is a local, experienced, comprehensive IT service provider that can meet these needs and contribute to our continued competitiveness”, says Christiaan Keet CTO of Hydro66.
Hydro66 is the largest provider of commercial data center capacity north of Stockholm. The company is undertaking a large-scale expansion with an additional 8000 KW in four new server halls and tripling capacity from 400 to 1200 rack spaces. This means an increased need for 24/7 operational support for new and existing clients .
– The operation of a colocation data center is around the clock 365 days a year. Our customers are both local and global. This means that we need experienced technical support and qualified operational staff on site at all times. With Office as a partner, we can maintain service levels and quality while we simultaneously increase available capacity for more new clients, explains Keet.
The cooperation between Hydro66 and Office formally began on August 1. Together with Hydro66 own staff, the IT consultancy company will provide support, maintenance, operation and installation of customer servers. Office is present in 21 locations in Sweden, including Luleå, Kalix, Kiruna and Gällivare in the north of the country.
– We are delighted to work with Hydro66 as they are a new and exciting partner in a rapidly growing industry. In addition, we expand the scope of our knowledge into large scale data center operations which is unique in Northern Sweden – it feels inspiring, says Jan-Erik Magnström, CEO of Office in Norrbotten.
