Eco-system Marketplace.

We are transitioning the successful business model of consolidated data centers down to Germany’s regional cities, creating a marketplace of local enterprises, content delivery, network connectivity, and cloud. We have “human-size” operations, are always close and have you well connected.

Innovation in Sustainability.

nLighten is committed to continuous improvement in sustainability and implementing innovative solutions. In Germany, our vision is for our data centers to be increasingly coupled to the energy sector, seeking to recover heat for the local community and stabilize the grid, using energy increasingly from onsite renewable generation.

With increasing collaboration of our data centers with the local energy infrastructure, such that they share and conserve energy, we set an example for data centers to assist community emissions reductions. The term to describe this is called  “sector coupling” and is an example of how data centers can actively assist the environmental transition.

Low Latency.

We are connected, with latency of 6 ms or less across all of Germany’s metropolitan areas through a combination of geographical proximity and innovative connectivity partnerships - based on Round Trip Latency network measurements of the dominant carrier from the data center to a 5G tower.
