Infinity, a data center in East-London, was yesterday officially incorporated as a member of the Green Mountain family. The acquisition by Green Mountain’s owner, Azrieli Group Ltd., was finalized recently. Going forward Infinity will operate as part of the Green Mountain Group and trade under their brand.

Completion of the transaction was subject to certain conditions which were met earlier this month and the sale fully completed on 23rd January.

This key London location, situated less than 10 miles from the major financial centres of the City of London and Docklands. It consists of an already existing data center as well as available land for further development. The site can support up to 40MW of IT load and already has several strong UK enterprises as core tenants.

“I am excited that the acquisition is finally completed, and we can start merging our organizations. Our two companies share the same values and a common ability to design, build and operate mission critical datacenters. This expansion into the UK market will strengthen our portfolio of sites. This is a milestone in the development of Green Mountain.” says CEO of Green Mountain, Tor Kristian Gyland.

Plans for upgrading and expansion in London

Stuart Sutton, the CEO of Infinity, welcomed the management team of Green Mountain to the site this week. “We look forward to start working together to make the transition as smooth as possible. Infinity and Green Mountain both share a commitment to operational excellence through people and process. Plans for upgrading and further developments of the site are already in preparation. We are at the start of a journey that will bring benefits to our current and future clients, our staff and local community.”

The London site has significant future potential that now can be realized with the new owners. London is one of the most important data center and connectivity hubs in Europe, but new data center capacity is limited. “I am confident that the upgrading and expansion plans we have for this site will create considerable interest in the market. We are already in dialogue with potential new clients for the site.” Gyland adds.

The management team of Green Mountain visited the site and employees at the London facility to get to know their new colleagues better.
