Our managed hosting data centre

Secure hosting - exclusively in Germany, if requested

The comprehensive security measures in place at our data centres guarantee that all data is protected from theft or damage caused by environmental influences. All data centres are monitored by staff 365 days a year, 24 hours a day. In addition, entrance areas, outdoor spaces and all sensitive areas within the facility are monitored by cameras.

A modern access control system, based on two-factor authentication, only allows authorised persons into the building. Guards conduct regular patrols for additional inspections. UPS systems and voltage filters, as well as redundant diesel generators ensure constant power supply to the server and infrastructure.

A total of several thousand kVA per data centre is available for emergency power. The climate control with energy-efficient air-conditioning units, supported by cold aisle containment, means the servers and infrastructure always operate in an optimum temperature range. The building management technology also continuously monitors all critical values.
