EVRY brings IBM to DigiPlex.

EVRY announces that as part of an accelerated transformation of the infrastructure business, they have entered into an unique long-term partnership with IBM, which will significantly improve EVRY’s infrastructure offering to its customers.

According to EVRY, they “will continue to lead development of value-added infrastructure services and combine this with the use of IBM’s innovative cloud technology and global scale. Through the agreement, EVRY will partner with IBM for its basic infrastructure platform and IBM will play a key role in the transformation of EVRY’s basic infrastructure services to global platforms with proven methodology and global expertise.

As part of this accelerated transformation, EVRY will invest more than NOK 500 million to develop the best infrastructure solution in the Nordics. For the first time EVRY’s customers will have access to hybrid cloud solutions based on IBM`s Softlayer platform which will be installed in EVRY’s datacenter at Fet/Oslo. Additionally customers will enjoy a flexible infrastructure that will allow them to be even more agile in their digitalization.

“A leading infrastructure business is core to EVRY becoming a Nordic Champion. It is the foundation from which we build solutions that create business value and business outcomes for our customers. EVRY have started this transformation journey, but in order to deliver the best infrastructure solutions in the market, we need to accelerate the ongoing transformation of our infrastructure business”, comments Björn Ivroth, CEO of EVRY.”

The data centre at Fetsund, owned and operated by DigiPlex, was officially opened on April 13 2015 by Norway’s Minister for Climate and Environment, Tine Sundtoft.
