IT services provider Advania and colocation company atNorth have agreed to a deal that will see Advania take extra capacity at atNorth’s ICE03 site in Iceland, a 12MW data center in Akureyri that opened last year.

A statement from both companies noted that “The expansion onto the ICE03 campus “allows for further geographical separation of their infrastructure and highlights the business’s focus on data security, not to mention the benefits of redundancy and performance optimization.” 

Hafsteinn Guðmundsson, executive director of IT operations and services at Advania said, "AtNorth’s ICE03 site in Akureyri helps to ensure our data security. It is now possible to achieve such separation and mirroring of data domestically by utilizing two of atNorth’s sites in Iceland."

“We are delighted that Advania has chosen to expand into our ICE03 data center as part of our long-standing relationship,” said Eyjólfur Magnús Kristinsson, CEO at atNorth. “We are proud to be able to offer increased services where security and connectivity is ensured and carbon footprint is minimized.”
