As a trusted partner, Opin Kerfi became a leading IT sales and service partner in the Icelandic market. The company has consistently and successfully provided innovative and efficient services to its clients, focusing on consultation, integration, operations and solutions.

With great partners, Opin Kerfi is building a sustainable, free-cooling, Tier III state-of-the-art data centre at a prime location in Reykjavik City. The data centre will become one of the most technologically advanced data centres in Iceland, covering up to 5,000 square metres when fully developed. The first building stage is scheduled for completion in Autumn 2019. The first major customer will be the IT Service Center for the Icelandic Financial Market (RB), which will make the new facility its primary data centre.
