On Thursday, DigiPlex, an Oslo-based provider of sustainable, secure and scalable data centre colocation solutions was recognised as a leader in colocation services by global technology research and advisory firm, ISG.

The company, which has been in operation since 2001, designs, builds and operates state of the art data centres in Norway, Sweden and Denmark, where the cool, moist climate of the Nordic region allows DigiPlex’s award winning Air-to-Air evaporative cooling solution to deliver natural cooling to its latest generation of data centres. DigiPlex offers best-in-class services to public and private customers alike – including security sensitive organisations such as government and financial institutions with mission-critical applications.

"[DigiPlex is] one of the most attractive brand names in data centre colocation in the Nordics” - ISG

ISG announced that it was honouring DigiPlex as part of its first ever Provider Lens report, which explores next-gen private and hybrid cloud data centre services and solutions across the Nordic region. In this report, DigiPlex has been acknowledged as a ‘Leader’ in this fast-growing sector. 

“This is the first time that we have looked in depth at the Nordic colocation market, which is exploding as hyperscalers, regional and local businesses look to locate and expand here,” explained Anders Chrintz, Country Manager for Sweden, Denmark and Norway at ISG. 

“In a fragmented market, with a width of players ranging from global colocation providers to local system integrators, DigiPlex stands out as the leading regional colocation provider with a proven track record of continuous growth and a portfolio of secure, agile, and exceptional quality services that allow customers meet the digitalisation demands of connectivity, sustainability and compliance.”

In particular, DigiPlex has been lauded for the wide size spectrum of solutions offered – from Hyperscale ‘Built to Suit’ to half racks – via wholesale, data halls, cages, and single racks; A unique ethernet-based interconnected Nordic ecosystem through DigiPlex Nordic Connect Platform, offering stable, secure, and scalable direct connections to hyperscaler cloud services via AWS Direct Connect and Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute; Direct, secure, and on-demand access to partner global ecosystems of service providers, including leading cloud service providers such as Google Cloud Platform and Oracle Cloud via a Megaport partnership; 20 years of colocation experience, using green hydroelectric power since 2000; and “One of the most attractive brand names in data centre colocation in the Nordics.”

“In the past few years we have rapidly transformed our business to meet the evolving needs of hyperscalers looking to come to the Nordic region, as well as cloud-first local and international businesses looking for well connected, secure and sustainable data center solutions,” commented DigiPlex CEO Wiljar Nesse.


"This report confirms that DigiPlex's ability to continuously meet and exceeded customer expectations is appreciated also by the wider market" - Wiljar Nesse, CEO, DigiPlex

DigiPlex currently operates seven data centres across the Nordic region: one in Stockholm, one in Copenhagen, and four spread across strategic locations throughout Norway.  

In May, Digiplex completed a senior secured bond issue of $63mn, set to mature in May 2023, in order to finance the construction of two additional data centres. "We are seeing increased demand from both our enterprise customers who continue to move their digital infrastructure from on-premise solutions into combinations of colocation and cloud, as well as from the largest IT companies in the world looking to capitalise on the advantages of placing their data centers in the Nordics,” commented Nesse upon the closure of the bond.
