City Network chooses DigiPlex sustainable data centre as base for Swedish expansion
DigiPlex, the Nordic leader for innovative, energy efficient and sustainable data centers, today announces that City Network, a global provider of cloud services for IT infrastructure (IaaS) through its City Cloud service, has selected DigiPlex as the base for its Swedish expansion.
Large local demand for City Cloud Compliant Cloud, a service for companies with high regulatory compliance requirements offered by City Networks has sparked the expansion of a third node in Sweden. Its IT infrastructure service is currently used by companies such as Folksam, SBAB and Lendo. City Network has chosen DigiPlex as its data center provider for its high security, accessibility and climate-smart solution.
“We are very happy City Network has placed its trust in us to house its data in our sustainable, secure and energy-efficient data center, especially considering the high demands the company attaches to its infrastructure so that it can comply with regulatory requirements. We are therefore proud to welcome City Network to benefit from all the business and environmental benefits working with DigiPlex can offer,” said Gisle M. Eckhoff, CEO of DigiPlex.
City Cloud Compliant Cloud will be located in DigiPlex’ data center in Stockholm. From here, City Network will also provide network services that, in addition to clean capacity, provide direct access to the company's public cloud service City Cloud in Europe, North America and Asia.
“As we developed our compliant clouds, in which companies in the financial sector have been very interested, we needed a data center provider that could meet the high standards of accessibility, security and regulatory compliance demanded by our business and customers. This was in addition to increasing requests from customers for sustainable IT services. With its clear focus on providing climate friendly and energy efficient data center services combined with their high security and regulatory compliance, DigiPlex was chosen to be an important partner for our continued expansion,” says Johan Christenson, CEO and founder of City Network.
DigiPlex is endeavouring to set a new standard in the data center industry and today leads a new generation of data center providers that help companies maximize savings through innovation and reduce their carbon footprint and environmental impact. DigiPlex data center is powered exclusively on renewable electricity and the company's new facilities are some of the world's most green and energy efficient.
