NorthC Datacenters: NorthC purchases a data center in Switzerland from Kyndryl

Jul 18, 2023 | Posted by Abdul-Rahman Oladimeji

NorthC Group purchased a new data center near Zurich, Switzerland, through a sale/leaseback transaction. This week, the Dutch colocation company announced the opening of a new data center in the Winterthur neighborhood of Zurich. However, the company announced on LinkedIn that it had acquired Kyndryl's data center in the Swiss city. The terms were not revealed. The current IT capacity of the data center is 1.8 MW, with possibilities for expansion in the future. 

The IBM spinoff company for IT infrastructure services, Kyndryl, will continue to operate. Its Swiss division will be the facility's first tenant after signing a Managed Service Agreement for colocation functions with NorthC. Other regional entities will have access to the facility's remaining space.

NorthC operates three additional Swiss data centers in Münchenstein (area of Basel) and Biel (area of Bern) with a total floor space of 140,000 sq ft and a capacity of over 7.5MW. After purchasing Netrics last year, NorthC expanded into Switzerland. NorthC was established in 2020 after The Datacenter Group (TDCG) and NLDC merged. The company maintains ten data facilities in the Netherlands and two in Germany, with an additional Dutch facility under construction in Eindhoven.

After purchasing the IP Exchange colocation company from German IT services provider q.beyond in 2021, NorthC went into the German market. It then took over two data centers in Nuremberg and Munich with 150,600 square feet and more than 7MW of power capacity. The company maintains data centers in Winterthur, Prilly, Lausanne, Meyrin, and Kloten, per a Kyndryl certification page.
