A trusted datacenter partner

Since 1999, GleSYS has been at the forefront of datacenter innovation. The company is headquartered in Falkenberg, Sweden with additional data centers in Stockholm and Oulu (Finland), as well as a development office in Malmö. With a growing clientele of more than 4,000 satisfied customers in 67 countries, GleSYS continues to expand its global presence.

The challenge

GleSYS needs to align rapid expansion today, with future growth tomorrow. As their customer base grows, they need a reliable network partner to support today's connectivity needs and expectations - in terms of bandwidth development and reliability - with realistic expectations of AI-driven growth.

Solution

GleSYS found the perfect ally in Arelion, whose proactive support, strong presence and track record of meeting fast-growing network needs, makes them the partner of choice. Through close cooperation, Arelion offers tailored solutions that meet GleSYS's exacting requirements within a specific delivery timeframe.
Arelion's comprehensive product offerings, based on cutting-edge technology and expertise, align perfectly with GleSYS's interests. Although it is a global company, Arelion retains local knowledge and a personal touch, which is invaluable to GleSYS as their growth trajectory continues.

Results

The partnership with Arelion yields tangible benefits for GleSYS, enabling them to expand seamlessly in Northern Europe to support burgeoning demand for data center capacity - a consequence of high energy costs in Central Europe.
With Arelion's support and reliable network, GleSYS can meet its own business objectives, by increasing operational efficiency and maximizing customer satisfaction. The collaboration fosters a shared vision for the future, with both companies aligning to support AI expansion on the market.

Takeaways
