The future Tier III+ design colocation data center, Etix Jokkmokk #1, is a joint effort between Etix Everywhere and ArcticSites.

“This is a top-notch quality data center design that together with the redundant 100 percent renewable power supply and multiple fiber redundancy in Porjus makes this one of Sweden’s most powerful colocation data centers,” stated Jörgen Venot, Senior Vice President for Northern Countries of Etix Everywhere.

As of now, the project is in the pre-ordering phase. Construction will start when the facility reaches a minimum level of pre-ordered capacity. Once the necessary pre-ordering volume is reached, the company will need only six weeks to deploy the data center.

“We can start the operation at a pre-ordering volume around a few hundred kVA, which indicates the advantageous conditions found in the Jokkmokk area,” Mr. Venot added.
