    This extensive and anonymous survey about the workplace experience has become a key part of our culture and its results eagerly anticipated across the organization. Even though most of our employees are still working from home due to the COVID pandemic, we are pleased that our score in the Great Place to Work survey remains at an industry-leading level of 80% which is extremely gratifying.
    Wiljar Nesse, CEO at DigiPlex
    Despite the significant disturbance caused by the COVID pandemic, Team DigiPlex has responded to a year of dislocation and uncertainty with brilliant attitude and dedication. The ‘I got this’ culture of DigiPlex has shone through and is reflected in the findings of the Great Place to Work assessment. We have stood out in a difficult year, not only earning our third accreditation, but maintaining our culture while growing the number of employees by 25 per cent. I am proud of the way our teams have risen to this year’s challenges, and to me this speaks volumes to the quality of our culture and our people.

    Fredrik Jansson, DigiPlex CCO
    As a hyper-growth company in the fast-moving digital identity market that demands exceptionally secure and complex solutions, it was imperative that we found a partner which could not only support our ambitious plans, but could match our commitment to security. With DigiPlex we are assured of the physical security protecting our servers and have a clear path to expand as our business grows.
    Philip Hallenborg, founder and CEO of ZealiD
    Security is of paramount importance to all of our customers ranging from hyperscale cloud service providers to innovative, fast-moving entrepreneurs like ZealiD. DigiPlex has, over the last 20 years, earned a strong reputation for our physical security alongside high levels of customer service. We are very pleased that ZealiD recognizes this heritage and has chosen to put its trust in us.
    Fredrik Jansson, CCO at DigiPlex
    A key consideration in the decision-making process was for me to know the precise location of our data, and with the co-location solution from DigiPlex we have reached that goal – and our data is now located in a green data centre close to our offices. The solution has proved to be a financial benefit as it has saved us the cost of an overhaul and of ensuring protection against fire, burglary or sabotage and upgrading of the electricity, cooling and ventilation system in our existing server room. On top of that, office space has been made available, enabling us to terminate expensive office leases elsewhere and move staff to the headquarters.
    Søren Roug, Head of IT and Information Systems, EEA
    We are extremely pleased that the European Environment Agency (EEA) has chosen a co-location solution from DigiPlex in Copenhagen. We share the same vision of protecting the environment, and DigiPlex only builds and operates entirely green data centres, where we utilize innovative and sustainable solutions to be able to constantly meet the growing demand for data storage. It is obvious that an increasing number of social-minded businesses consider green IT and data centre solutions where DigiPlex is an obvious partner.

    The United Nations has declared a ‘Decade of Action’ and Nordic governments are seeking to become carbon-neutral by 2030.
    Fredrik Jansson, Chief Strategy and Marketing Communications Officer, DigiPlex
    What and how we communicate has an important role in encouraging the industry to be aware and play its part in reducing carbon emissions – a fact recognized by the eleven awards we’ve now received for our pioneering marketing and communications efforts this year.
    Fredrik Jansson, Chief Strategy and Marketing Communications Officer, DigiPlex
    Our third survey clearly shows that digitalization is proving much harder than expected for many organizations. The competing demands of innovation, cost efficiency, security, compliance, and availability mean that meeting digitalization demands rapidly can be difficult. Doing all of this whilst moving to a lower-carbon economy is a challenge for most. DigiPlex offers the skills, facilities and experience to help its customers balance these competing demands on the digital infrastructure and deliver the digital progress they need.
    Wiljar Nesse, CEO at DigiPlex

Our new center at Holtskogen will be our seventh facility in the Nordics, serving a steadily increasing demand from both our enterprise customers as well as from the largest IT companies in the world, so-called “hyperscalers”, looking to capitalize on the advantages of placing their data centers in the Nordics.

    As the world continues to manage the repercussions of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is important not to lose focus on the climate emergency, and other global issues of inequality. Joining DigiPlex in March this year I was impressed with the progress made on so many fronts, but also committed to lead further change, increase transparency and deliver more impact across our ecosystem. Engaging with the communities that support us, developing digital skills across the workforce and increasing diversity, as well as helping our customers to minimize their own environmental footprints are key goals for me as we build on our success.
    Wiljar Nesse, DigiPlex CEO

We must always push ourselves to do better and this report is a clear statement of our intent to do so.
    Byrne Murphy, DigiPlex Founder & Chairman
    We are especially pleased that our campaigns on the topic of data center sustainability have been recognised as among the best ESG and marketing campaigns across the industry, showing that this vital message is resonating with key audiences.

Both the location at Fetsund and at Holtskogen are ideal, as they have ample access to power, are well connected, have expansion possibilities and the closeness to Oslo provide low latency for our customers.
    Wiljar Nesse, CEO of DigiPlex
