Toward the self-driving data center
EcoDataCenter is the world’s first climate-positive data center. With an innovative design and world-leading technology, we build and operate data centers for colocation, HPC and wholesale/hyperscale. Our facility in Falun is connected to and leads our surplus heat directly back to the heating plant and into the biofuel production plant. Our facility is run entirely on renewable energy sources and is designed to be as energy efficient as possible. EcoDataCenter is a company in rapid growth that aims to grow both by acquiring and building more data centers. www.ecodatacenter.uk
The plant in Falun is powered entirely by renewable energy sources and thanks to the integration with Falu Energi & Vatten, all excess heat is led back to the heating plant where it is used for heating or production of renewable biofuel (pellets). The plant is designed to be as energy efficient as possible and is operated entirely with renewable energy sources from Norrland. This makes our center in Falun the world's first climate-positive data center.
EcoDataCenter's facility in Piteå municipality is located at a high latitude, which is a great advantage when it comes to collaboration with the space industry. The proximity to the antennas in space ensures a fast connection and lowers the latency. This is accomplished by connecting satellite antennas (located at a teleport) directly to the data center infrastructure. To enable this, the center has a direct fiber connection between the teleport and the data center, as well as a platform for handling satellite data.
In the Piteå region, we also have a hidden and EMP-protected place deep in the forest at a safe distance from densely populated areas. This center is ideal for high security solutions and applications that require protection against EMP.
EcoDataCenter's two facilities in Stockholm facilitate companies' sustainability work in the region. By placing the most critical equipment, which requires the lowest possible latency, in Stockholm and the volumes in the data center in Falun, the transition to a more sustainable IT operation is made easier. The shortage of electricity in the Stockholm area also makes the establishment of large data centers less favorable.
