ISG study: ITENOS is again one of the top five colocation service providers

“ITENOS maintains six data centers in five cities and is an ideal partner for small businesses, mid-tier companies and service providers. The company’s offerings were further expanded through the construction of a data center in Düsseldorf and connectivity improvements.” ISG, 2020



Global technology research and advisory firm ISG‘s Provider Lens ‘Next-Gen Private/Hybrid Cloud – Data Center Services & Solutions 2020‘ is a practitioner-led comparison of the portfolios and competitive strength of 26 service providers in the German market. As in the previous year, the ISG analysts have placed ITENOS in the ‘Leader’ quadrant, confirming our position as one of the leading colocation services providers in Germany and one of the top five in our market.

“ITENOS is constantly expanding its range of services and adapts very quickly to market needs,” according to the ISG experts. “Due to high demand for colocation services, an energy-efficient data center with a floor space of 12,900 square meters has been put into operation in Düsseldorf recently.” ITENOS now has seven data centers in Frankfurt, Düsseldorf, Leverkusen, Bonn and Hamburg with a total floor area of 31,200 square meters. According to ISG, ITENOS is “one of the largest providers, primarily for mid-tier businesses.”



“Over the past twelve months we have all worked hard to improve our infrastructure and our portfolio. As a result we have retained our position among the top five of a total of 26 colocation service providers, which is a fantastic team outcome. It’s achievements like this that motivate us to go the extra mile every day.”
