IT Services Company Tieto Enhances Security with Data Center and Cloud Offerings from Former NATO Bunker

Tieto, an IT services company offering data center and cloud services in the Nordics, has signed an agreement with data center operator Green Mountain Data Centre to offer local and highly secured data center services to customers in Norway.

Green Mountain Data Centre, based on the island of Rennesøy in Rogaland, Norway, is naturally cooled and protected by the rocky environment in a former NATO bunker. Inside a mountain in a Norwegian fjord in Stavanger, it is a highly energy-efficient colocation facility that uses only local, renewable energy. This green data center reckons the largest bank in Norway, DNB, to its clients.

Tieto delivers green, high-quality data centre and cloud services to the public and private sectors across the Nordic countries. This is an important step for helping our customers to renew their business and for strengthening our growth in the region.”
