Green Mountain, one of the world’s greenest operators of high security, robust wholesale colocation data centres, has been shortlisted for DCS Awards 2019 in three categories. The DCS awards are designed to reward the product designers, manufacturers, suppliers and providers operating in data centre arena.  

Green Mountain has been shortlisted for DCS Awards 2019 in the following three categories:

  • Excellence in Data Centre Services Award
  • Data Centre Hosting/co-location Supplier of the Year
  • Data Centre Manager of the Year – Ole Sten Volland

The strongest arguments supporting the two first nominations for DCS Awards 2019 include Green Mountain’s ability to;

  • set a green standard in the industry – being the most energy-efficient data centre in the market with 100% renewable energy (hydropower) and close to zero CO2 footprints.
  • deliver a service level of 100% uptime with up to Tier III resilience – since the first day of operation.
  • deliver high customer satisfaction – our customers give us excellent feedback and scores in our annual customer satisfaction survey (5.9 out of 6)
  • deliver world-class security – the security system and our standard operational practices are in accordance with ISO 9001/14001/27001
  • develop a DCIM-tool that offers customers access to real-time and historical data about the data centre environment with 100% transparency.

The nomination for Data Centre manager of the Year is a special recognition of Green Mountain’s Chief Technology Officer, Ole Sten Volland. In 2018, he has been handling two parallel 2,5 MW development projects at two different locations, with different framework conditions and at a tight schedule. At the same time, he has been an ambassador in the local community, an effective decision maker and an emphatic leader.
