NNIT’s newly expanded data center in Copenhagen Tier III re-certified
Having completed a 50% capacity expansion of the existing Tier III data center in Glostrup (Greater Copenhagen), the data center has been officially re-certified by Uptime Institute® as Tier III for Design and Construction.
NNIT is one of only four other data center operators in Denmark who have been certified by Uptime Institute® – an independent 3rd party validator – and the only one to have the full range of Uptime certifications across all data centers. NNIT already holds the Operational certification at the highest level (gold).
The certification represents a commitment to operational excellence, continuous improvement, risk mitigation and resiliency, specifically relating to the design and construction of the data center. This was achieved after a diligent assessment of all aspects of the facilities in Glostrup by an expert team from Uptime Institute.
Kristian Lomholt, Vice President, NNIT comments:
“We are committed to providing excellent data center services to our customers – whether the demand is for hosting or housing. And we are proud to say that we have already filled the extra 50% capacity with new happy customers. It is not easy to get these stamps of approval year after year, and it means that our customers can feel safe and secure in the knowledge that our data centers are truly state-of-the-art. The Uptime certifications means our customers can be certain we offer premium data center services, mitigate risk successfully and operate in a safe and sustainable way.”
