nLighten – your proximity partner. We deliver more than just a data center: you benefit from a whole ecosystem in Germany’s regional cities. Providing a thriving marketplace of local enterprises, content delivery, network connectivity, and cloud services. At nLighten, we support them all with high-availability facilities that are tailored to local requirements.
We run a platform of 10 data centers across Germany. That means we’re always close to you – and you’re close to your customers too. At nLighten, we’re big enough to offer a next-generation infrastructure platform, yet agile enough to respond fast – and locally – to meet your specific needs.
At nLighten, our ambition is to integrate our data centers into the local energy infrastructure. That way, the data centers have the ability to share and conserve energy within their local community and form a collaborative and assistive role in the energy transition.
Feeling the need for speed? Then nLighten is right for you. Our data centers are network hubs for national and international networks. They deliver access to latency of ≤ 6ms across all of Germany’s metropolitan areas. Your benefits? Super-fast connectivity plus geographical proximity and innovative partnerships.
Our mission: to make it easy for you to do business. Better and more efficiently. Use our carrier-neutral ecosystem for a convenient and connected environment. From simply reaching your mobile workforce to high-end compute and network functionality, nLighten is a platform available today but is being engineered for the future. nLighten is colocation at cloud speed.
