Nordic Colocation Provider DigiPlex Expands Two Oslo-based Data Centers

DigiPlex, a colocation provider from the Nordics with multiple data centers available focused on delivering energy-efficient and sustainable data center solutions to its clients, is expanding two of its current data centers in the Oslo, Norway area, in Rosenholm and Ulven respectively.

The increase in colocation capacity at DigiPlex’s Rosenholm data center, adding 700 square meters of white space, is scheduled to be available in July 2018. A further 785 square meters of white space is being added at the Ulven data center and is scheduled to be available from September 2018. Once fully rebuilt, the two colocation data centers in Rosenholm and Ulven, combined with DigiPlex’s Fetsund colocation data center, will collectively offer a total of 11,900 square meters of DigiPlex white space in the Oslo area.

“The exponential growth of data consumption and business’ desire to do more with data is driving a strong data center building boom,” said Gisle M. Eckhoff, CEO of DigiPlex. “Our data centers Ulven and Rosenholm have been in operations for 17 and 8 years respectively and are Norway’s most connected data centers with 100s of customers. The eco-system in both Ulven and Rosenholm makes them especially favorable go-to data center for customers, and Rosenholm, with its campus setting, uses its excess heat to heat up the campus facilities. Both sites are well suited to host both hyper scalers and co-location customers.”

ISO-Certification, Office Expansion

As with all DigiPlex’s data centers, the Rosenholm and Ulven facilities are carrier-neutral and deliver full ISO-certification, “high-grade” fire suppression system, on-site security with “state-of-the-art” security systems, card access systems throughout, and electromagnetic pulse (EMP) protection.

“The expansion of our Ulven facility also offered the added value of relocating the DigiPlex Oslo office into new bigger premises on Ulvenveien 82 to accommodate our growing team,” added Eckhoff.
