The farm that became a server farm
Green IT has, for a long time, been a main focus of Braathe Gruppen, and to drive energy efficiently, we have dug 15 kilometers of cooling loops under the ground on the property. The "farm", though with fields still being farmed traditionally, has evolved into a high-tech "server farm".
The old barn on the farm is completely rebuilt into a state-of-the-art technology barn where about fifty of our employees are seated, and more than 10.000 users and 3.000 servers are provided for and hosted. The head office remains here at Nærum farm, but we have also expanded with offices in Oslo, Kongsberg, Skien, Mo i Rana, Harstad, Bodø and Tromsø and are now more than 175 dedicated employees.
Every day, we focus on how our services can be improved and how to make the users IT platform as worry-free as possible. In 2020, we have one goal of taking on an even stronger position as one of the leaders in providing cloud services to Norwegian businesses.
