DigiPlex nominated for “Best Data Centre Energy Solution” and “Marketer of the Year” at the Datacloud Awards
DigiPlex, the Nordic leader for innovative and sustainable data centres is a finalist in two categories at the prestigious Datacloud Awards, the definitive data centre and cloud industry awards:
Best Data Centre Energy Solution Award
This accolade awards excellence in energy use in data centres and DigiPlex is recognised for the large-scale heat reuse agreement recently signed with Stockholm Exergi. The agreement is the world’s first where an already operational data centre with an indirect evaporative air-to-air cooling solution, will be retrofitted to recover excess heat for the local district heating system. The agreement will lead to the heating of up to 10,000 modern residential apartments in Stockholm.
“Innovation is at the core of our DNA and heat reuse is the next innovative step in our energy efficiency journey. Adding the ability to reuse excess heat for residential housing and offices will help customers in our highly energy efficient Stockholm data centre, which features the award winning Air-to-Air and Concert Control systems, to reduce their environmental impact even further.” says Gisle M. Eckhoff, CEO of DigiPlex
Marketer of the Year Award
Fredrik Jansson, Chief Strategy and Marketing/Communications Officer, is nominated for “Marketer of the Year Award”, an accolade which celebrates outstanding marketing contribution in the data centre and cloud industry. Fredrik is recognised for leading the rapid marketing and communications transformation that has established the DigiPlex as the leading Nordic data centre brand. Recently, DigiPlex’ marketing and communications team has been widely recognised in prestigious cross-industry awards. Last week the company’s brand building was recognised with a nomination for “B2B Brand Team of the Year” at The Drum Marketing Awards. This follows a string of nominations including “Best Marketing Team” and “Best Marketing Campaign” at the Global Carrier Awards and “Communications Team of the Year” at the prestigious European Excellence Awards.
“I am deeply honoured to be nominated for this prestigious award. DigiPlex’ rapid marketing and communications transformation is a result of true teamwork – special thanks to my all-star team and the DigiPlex family of fantastic brand ambassadors.”, says Fredrik Jansson
