About us

Protecting tomorrow’s planet by taking action today with our commitment towards green data centres and decarbonisation!

AQ Compute provides green, flexible and modular data centre and colocation services – powered by renewable energy.
It pursues a pan-European data centre strategy and anticipates an ever-increasing demand for computing capacity with a strong focus on sustainability. Client data is hosted on sustainable infrastructure, which includes building materials, power supplies and the recovery of excess heat. Besides having ecological advantages, AQ Compute’s approach has economic advantages for its clients.

AQ Compute focuses on the European continent with an emphasis on secondary markets. Growing markets, such as the Nordics or the Iberian Peninsula, offer ideal conditions for the development and operation of sustainable data centres with excellent access to renewable energy.
