Verne Global and Volta Data Centres have announced that they have teamed up and will now be operating under the Verne Global brand, spanning from Iceland to the UK. Speaking about the decision to merge, Dominic Ward, CEO of Verne Global, said: “With two complementary, best-in-class data centers, we can now offer enterprises more choice over where to locate their applications.”

He added: “Our experience suggests that less than ten percent of workloads need to be in metropolitan areas, the rest can be located anywhere in the world. Yet historically, many organisations place all their applications in one spot, often in locations with severe space and power constraints, or inappropriate cost profiles. We help organisations take a fresh approach, splitting their applications between locations in order to optimise performance, reduce costs, and limit their impact on the environment.“

Thor Johnsen, Head of Triple Point’s Digital 9 Infrastructure plc, commented: “This is another great example of driving convergence value across our portfolio. Verne Global’s data center assets represent some of the cleanest, lowest carbon footprint data centers, globally. Volta is one of central London’s best connected data centers with customers that continue to seek low latency access in key centralised locations. We are excited with the long-term opportunities across existing enterprise customers to optimise data center utilisation across the broader platform, balancing the low latency metro access of Volta with the predictable power costs and sustainability benefits of Verne Global.”

Verne Global and Volta are both owned by Triple Point’s Digital 9 Infrastructure plc (D9), which reportedly focuses on creating a more “resilient, sustainable, inclusive and accessible internet.”
