Microsoft to open two data centres in Norway
The new facilities are part of a deal with international energy company Equinor, which has chosen the Microsoft Cloud in Norway to enable its digital transformation and drive cloud-enabled innovation. “By bringing these new data centres online in Norway, we are also very pleased to be able to pave the way for growth and transformation of many other businesses and organisations in Norway, whether they be large enterprises, government bodies, or any of the 200,000 small and medium-size businesses that create Norway’s thriving economy,” said Kimberly Lein-Mathisen, general manager, Microsoft Norway. Microsoft’s expansions have also been welcomed by the Norwegian government. “The Norwegian government is deeply committed to helping Norway thrive as a hub for digital innovation,” said Torbjørn Røe Isaksen, Norwegian minister of Trade and Industry.
