Sweden: LKAB invests in new data centre

Swedish mining company LKAB has bought a new modular data centre solution from VCE of Atea. The deal, which also includes one year support contract, worth around 13 million. Thanks to a high level of automation, the solution will mean lower operating costs and the opportunity for LKAB to virtualize the workplace and offer its consultants a virtual machine that they can run on a separate unit, rather than giving them their own separate computer.

“ We have grown faster than planned, which accelerated the need for a new data centre. In this work, we chose to partner with Atea and partly because they suggested the best solution technically, but also because we already had a good cooperation with them. They deliver our network and our workplace hardware and just now a great Windows 7 project which will soon be ready. For us it is easier to work with a partner who can take a total commitment, said Daniel Berglund CIO at LKAB.
