Over the last five years, NNIT has experienced significant growth across all its business divisions including its data centre hosting services. To meet this demand, the company selected Interxion as its preferred high availability data centre partner.
Sune Andersen, Vice President of Operations, NNIT comments: “A high percentage of our client base operates in the pharmaceutical industry, so data centre security and availability is of paramount importance.
