DigiPlex Opens New Colo Hall in its Stockholm Data Centre

STOCKOLM, 12 February 2019 - DigiPlex, the Nordic leader for innovative, sustainable and secure data centres, has opened a new server hall in its Stockholm data centre to meet increasing customer demand. The new hall is tailored for customers with one or more server racks, who want their IT environment housed in one of Sweden’s most secure and environmentally efficient data centres

“The companies turning to DigiPlex want the Nordic region’s most sustainable, energy efficient and secure colocation. At our data centre outside Stockholm, we now offer a dedicated server hall with the same high quality for customers with smaller storage needs. Data centres are at the core of all digitalization and companies that place their servers with us can assure their customers and users that their data centre solution is future proof,” says DigiPlex CEO Gisle M. Eckhoff.

DataCom is one of several companies that have chosen the new DigiPlex colo hall.

“DataCom is in an expansive growth phase due to a large influx of new customers into our hosting business. To meet the growing demand from our customers for communication and hosting services, it was therefore natural to choose DigiPlex as our partner to complement our own data centres,” says Mario Hellqvist, CEO DataCom AB.

Fast and secure access of data is crucial

According to the report ‘A Perfect Storm: Nordic Datacentre Trends 2018’, which was carried out by IDG Connect on behalf of DigiPlex, 69% of the decision makers surveyed believe that constant and fast access to data is crucial for their company's competitiveness. The amount of data that must be stored in a secure and accessible manner is increasing exponentially every yearis placing huge demands on companies and organizations.

Short delivery times

“In our new hall, we can deliver a secure, safe and climate-smart IT environment within 1–2 days for customers with smaller demands. I very much look forward to welcoming more customers to DigiPlex outside Stockholm and supporting them in their growth”, says Per Lähdet, Operations Manager of DigiPlex Sweden.

Per Lähdet was appointed Operations Manager at DigiPlex in Sweden in October 2018 and has extensive industry experience stemming from senior roles at, among others, Amazon Web Services and Interxion.

DigiPlex’s data centre outside Stockholm is one of the Nordic countries' most modern and energy efficient. DigiPlex has developed a number of innovations for energy efficiency and sustainability for data centres, such as its Air-to-Air cooling system and concept for recycling of excess heat where housing in Stockholm and Oslo will be heated through the district heating networks.
