Bulk Data Centers, one of the Nordics’ leading data center providers delivering ultra-flexible, scalable, highly connected and sustainable solutions, recently announced that it was chosen as the colocation provider of choice by Aker BP, a fully fledged exploration and production company on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.
Measured in production, Aker BP is one of the largest independent oil companies in Europe. Recently, the company was looking to expand with a new High Performance Computing (HPC) cluster. However, to accomplish this, Aker BP needed flexible, cost-effective colocation options that would suit a quick deployment timeline, meeting immediate needs while offering room for subsequent expansions.
“We’re proud to support Aker BP,” states Jon Gravråk, CEO of Bulk Data Centers. “The value of Nordic digital infrastructure’s low operating costs when it comes to dense requirements such as those found in HPC — combined with our strategic location, scalability and flexibility — allowed us to deliver a tailored, meticulous solution to the company’s evolving needs. We look forward to supporting Aker BP as they continue on their path of growth.”
Bulk is enabling Aker BP’s HPC initiatives with a dedicated, secure colocation solution within its Oslo Internet Exchange (OS-IX) — Norway’s best-connected data center, which is powered by renewable energy. This colocation solution, supporting up to 20 kW per rack, is complemented by dark fiber connectivity that Bulk sourced from Fortum Fiber.
Bulk’s solutions enhance the sustainability and business value of the Nordic data center, delivering next-level service and partnership that supports power-intensive data processing needs. With green-powered data center locations and the ability to offer enhanced power resilience, scalability and flexibility, Bulk Data Centers ensures workloads are able to flourish with the utmost availability, cost efficiency and responsiveness. Underscored by the company’s decades of insight and expert in-house engineering and service teams, this dedication to excellence ensures the company can continue to serve as a trusted advisor to cloud service providers, enterprises, hyperscalers and more.
