atNorth, a Nordic data center company, has acquired Gompute, a Swedish High-Performance Computing (HPC) services provider. The terms were not disclosed. Gompute, a company founded in 2002, provides HPC-as-a-cloud services with bare-metal compute nodes for computer-aided engineering (CAE) applications, in addition to on-premise and hybrid cloud solutions.

Gompute runs a data center in Gothenburg, Sweden, with a potential capacity of 10MW. DataCenterMap indicates that the site at Byfogdegatan 6 contains two data rooms comprising approximately 9,690 square feet. The deal stipulates that atNorth will add Gompute's data center to its portfolio.

AtNorth is a pan-Nordic provider of colocation and high-performance computing (HPC) data centers. The company presently operates six data centers in Sweden, Iceland, and Finland, with a seventh facility under construction in Finland.

Gompute was formerly a division of Gridcore AB, whose website now redirects to Gompute. Gompute offers cloud nodes with Intel Broadwell, Sky Lake, or Cascade Lake processors. The company recently declared its intention to provide AMD Epyc options. Customers have included the Norwegian Marine Technology Research Institute, Marintek, shipbuilders Knud E. Hansen and the Damien Group.
