The company already purchased 10,000 H100 GPUs in September, according to an announcement at the time. In total, it has spent more than $800 million in getting access to the 18,200 units of NVIDIA equipment.

Northern Data has recently secured a $600 million loan facility from Tether as well as equity investment from the stablecoin issuer.

In addition to the expansion of cloud servicing capacity, Northern Data is building additional bitcoin mining facilities in the U.S. and purchasing bitcoin miners from MicroBT, as previously reported.
