nLighten Data Center


As well as forming the heart of Germany’s financial services industry, Frankfurt is also the country’s key data center, IT and telecommunications hub. It offers multiple long-distance international networks as well as excellent access, with a wide range of public transport offerings. For nLighten, all these advantages made it an exceptional city in which to establish one of our first German data centers.
