Conapto CEO Håkan Björklund, said,
“Scalable, secure, and sustainable data center colocation is our core business. Combined with cloud connectivity and the fact that we are a Swedish-owned operator-neutral supplier with two interconnected data centers in Stockholm, actually makes us completely unique in the market.

Conapto, formerly the Swedish subsidiary of Sungard AS, was founded as Backupcentralen in 1982. In 2002, Sungard Availability Services bought Backupcentralen, and expanded its business into colocation, adding DC2 (Stockholm South) in 2009, and DC3 (Stockholm North) in 2013. In 2018, Sungard AS sold off its Swedish subsidiary. Under its new name, Conapto has focused on the Swedish market and colocation. IBM is one of the customers of Conapto.
