EVRY’s datacentres are world-class in terms of security and environmental performance. The datacentres use half as much energy as traditional datacentres thanks to the use of an entirely new and innovative air cooling system in conjunction with modern, virtualised and energy-efficient servers.
EVRY delivers complete IT solutions based on world-leading technology to a large number of leading businesses and organisations in the Nordics.
“We are very proud to have been selected by Telenor, which proves that we can offer high quality infrastructure and cloud solutions also to the enterprise market. Telenor is a company that is genuinely able to make use of new technology to benefit its customers, and the new agreement will enable Telenor to provide its customers with even better solutions internationally. This is a good example when we are creating digital advantage for EVRY’s customers”, comments Björn Ivroth, CEO at EVRY.
