Speedy Upgrade at DigiPlex Fetsund data centre shortlisted for Project of the Year Award
Oslo, Norway, 8 November 2019 - DigiPlex, the Nordic leader for innovative, sustainable and secure data centres, has been shortlisted for Data Center Modernization Project of the Year by DCD Awards.
The award recognises projects that deliver operational and business outcomes by upgrading existing facilities rather than building new ones. Although complex, DigiPlex’s entry demonstrates that these projects can be faster to market, cost effective and sustainable.
Innovative thinking was key to successfully transforming a data hall in an existing data centre in order to meet the criteria of a large international client. Not only did this require a doubling of power and cooling density in the data hall and an increase in electrical resilience, it was also completed in under 9 months with no disruption to existing tenants and operations.
“Today’s digital world is characterised by rapid and continuous change; the ability to flexibly adapt to our client’s requirements is at the heart of DigiPlex’s offer. To be shortlisted for this important award is testament to our ingenuity, technical leadership and clear-sighted partnership with our customers,” commented Gisle M. Eckhoff, CEO of DigiPlex. “Perhaps more importantly, we have delivered on the demands of a large international client, in a very short timeframe whilst still maintaining exceptional operational efficiency.”
