Colo hall opened in Stockholm data centre

Nordic data centre operator DigiPlex 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 company stated.

The data centre is situated outside Stockholm and is thought to be one of the Nordic area’s 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 a concept for recycling of excess heat where housing in Stockholm and Oslo will be heated through the district heating networks.

“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,” exclaimed CEO Gisle Eckhoff.

 

Fast and secure data access

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 year is placing huge demands on companies and organisations.

DataCom is one of several companies that have chosen the new facility. “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,” said Mario Hellqvist, CEO DataCom AB.
