    DigiPlex is a market leader in the high-growth Nordic data center sector and we have long admired the quality of its management, employees and business strategy. With DigiPlex’s existing scaled presence and deep development expertise, we will significantly expand our hyperscale-focused data center portfolio in Europe, a key region of focus for IPI. We are excited to partner with the DigiPlex team to further realize on the company’s tremendous growth potential. Utilizing our network and existing businesses, we believe we can together build a platform that meets the rapidly evolving needs of the digital economy in the Nordics and beyond.
    Matt A’Hearn, Partner at IPI
    What DigiPlex has achieved over the past 20 years is an amazing accomplishment and a testament to the incredible people who work there. It is the right time to give DigiPlex extended firepower to capitalize on its advantages and benefit from the next wave of growth in the industry. It is also crucial to me and to my partner, Bill Conway, to hand DigiPlex off to new owners who recognize and support its people, culture, experience, and customers, as well as the communities in which it operates.
    J. Byrne Murphy, founder and Chairman of DigiPlex for the last 20 years
    At a time of rapid growth for the industry, IPI provides near-term scalability to DigiPlex. New capital, as well as a global footprint and access to global supply chains, relationships and customers, are expected to supercharge our growth, enabling us to continue meeting the hyperscale demand that we are experiencing. We believe this acquisition is an acknowledgement of our strong customer relationships and proven business model, and that employees and customers alike will benefit as we accelerate our plans and expand our vision in partnership with IPI.
    Wiljar Nesse, CEO of DigiPlex
    Speed to market is a critical factor for our hyperscale clients. Our campus approach to data center design and construction allows us to be very agile and respond to these requirements with fast and flexible builds. Completing a single data center in under a year is a huge achievement, announcing the openings of three in the last nine months, whilst battling the disruptions of global pandemic is extraordinary.
    Wiljar Nesse, CEO of DigiPlex
    As the digitalization of economies and society continues to accelerate, our ability to secure land and create facilities complete with connectivity and power, ready to hand over to clients in just a few months is a significant competitive advantage.
    Wiljar Nesse, CEO of DigiPlex
    This was an outstanding entry detailing a construction project that took eight months to complete, taking place across the pandemic period. Adjacent to an existing operational data center, the construction of this facility used less concrete and reused waste heat and rainwater.
    The Datacloud Global Awards judging panel
    We are proud that our work with DigiPlex has been recognized globally with this award. We are also very proud of the work we did at Fetsund to overcome multiple challenges and deliver a cutting-edge facility on time. We look forward to our next projects with DigiPlex.
    David Caddy Director of CTS International Ltd
    This is a great win for CTS and the Digiplex team. Designing, building and operating sustainable, secure, and scalable data centers means paying attention to every detail, it is great to see the recognition of the judges not just of the challenges that the team overcame to fulfill our on-time delivery to our customers, but also to the innovative methods and designs that we employ to put safety, quality and sustainability at the heart of everything that we do.
    Phil Coutts, Chief Development Officer at DigiPlex
    While this is not a solution necessary for every client, DigiPlex worked diligently to engineer an ultra-high security solution where the entire infrastructure is encapsulated. Our solution retains the highest standards of efficiency and reliability for which we are renowned, whilst satisfying the needs of those clients that demand Resistance Class 4 for their data.
    Fredrik Jansson, CCO, DigiPlex
    With encapsulated power and cooling feeds, each secure module offers its own layer of resilience, which can be deployed at our existing data center campuses. Having exceeded these exacting security requirements stands testament to our company’s continuous efforts to deliver innovation and excellence for all our customers.
    Fredrik Jansson, CCO, DigiPlex
    “DigiPlex demonstrate in a good manner how they execute good social governance and responsibility, by supporting the project of turning plastic waste into material for building classrooms. The project covers three main pillars, how to recycle waste, securing health due to bad waste management and the challenges related to lack of education due to insufficient numbers of classrooms. We look forward to the cooperation with DigiPlex in the years to come, and we are proud of having them as our corporate partner. Together we are securing a future for children by beating plastic pollution.
    Director for cooperate partnership Kari Von Krogh
    We are very proud to sponsor the UNICEF Plastic Brick project. Sustainability is at the core of DigiPlex’s mission, and as a leader in creating sustainable infrastructure for the digital world this important project in Abidjan adds valuable dimensions to our sustainability goals. Working with local youth and women as agents of change, we are hopeful that our support will not only economically empower women but also creating a clean environment for children to learn and play.
    Wiljar Nesse, CEO of DigiPlex
    Last year we set ourselves the goal to at least maintain our status in the Great Place to Work rankings. To move up five places, against the background of the challenges of the COVID pandemic, is testament not only to the commitment of all our employees, but to the resilience of our culture. I am super proud of our people.
    Haakon Holm Knapstad, Chief HR & Compliance Officer at DigiPlex
    In my first year as CEO I have constantly seen evidence of how DigiPlexers take ownership, initiative and support each other as they collaborate to develop and deliver solutions and service to our customers. They have the can-do attitude that makes this such an exciting, empowering and rewarding place to work. I am honored that we have reached 10th place in Norway’s Best Workplaces especially in times like these.
    Wiljar Nesse, CEO DigiPlex
    For DigiPlex to advance five levels up to 10th position amongst Norway’s Best Workplaces in just one year, and during a global pandemic, is impressive. Such a rapid advancement is seldom seen during the history of GPTW. It is clear that the DigiPlex team has a very special spirit of camaraderie, and this has grown even stronger despite the many challenges of this past year.
    Jannik Krohn Falck, CEO Great Place to Work
    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.

    Jannik Krohn Falck, CEO Great Place to Work

    Dansk Telemedicin is a recognized name in Danish healthcare IT and we are pleased to welcome them to DigiPlex. Any organization dealing with healthcare data needs 100% confidence in the security and stability of the infrastructure they rely on. We are pleased to be able to deliver this confidence to Dansk Telemedicin.
    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.
    Fredrik Jansson, CCO, DigiPlex
    At a time when we have significantly grown our portfolio, Phil will play a key role in orchestrating our capabilities and capacity to deliver high quality facilities at speed.” Nesse added, “We opened two major data centers in 2020 and have another due to come online in Q2, plus we have acquired 170,000 m2 of land for new campuses near Oslo and Copenhagen – Phil will be busy from day one!
