Global Data Centre Group (GDC) investee Etix Everywhere has raised $46.8 million to drive down debt and expand in Europe and Southeast Asia.

“Etix provides high-quality data centre services to local customers, and we are delighted to be supporting their expansion and to assist them in their decarbonisation pathway.
