Security

The buildings are monitored by a control center (staffed 24/7) and by further multistage security systems, among them comprehensive video surveillance, a security fence with perimeter monitoring as well as RC4 certified shell of buildings.

Infrastructure

We take every precaution to protect your hardware from damage caused by power interruptions. No matter whether short voltage fluctuations, longer power outages or maintenance work – separate supply lines of two independent substations enable secure operation of your infrastructure anytime. Each is equipped with its own transformers, emergency diesel generators and uninterruptible power supply systems (UPS). The server cabinets are equipped with a cold aisle housing for optimal cooling. The cooling is performed through indirect, free adiabatic cooling in separate climate clasps. Thus, no liquid carrying pipes are needed on the data center floor, and no access for service staff is necessary any more.

Air conditioning
  • Indirect, free, adiabatic cooling
  • Cold air distribution via raised floor into the cold aisles
  • Supply to the server racks via ventilation panels in the raised floor
  • Capacity per rack between 2.5 and 15 kW
