Proact provides data back-up to Norwegian electricity grid Statnett based on Cisco and Cohesity tech

Monday 24 February 2020 | 12:01 CET | News
European data centre and cloud services provider Proact said it has won a contract worth approximately NOK 20 million to supply a back-up service to Statnett, the Norwegian power grid operator. Statnett runs a critical infrastructure and downtime would have enormous consequences for every part of Norwegian society, hence the search for a partner able to provide multi-site back-up. After a thorough security and vulnerability analysis, Proact was selected, and will provide a system based on technology from Cohesity and Cisco.
