Our data centers at the heart of the internet: in Frankfurt am Main
With our network, we are present at numerous European sites to realize your projects. However, the majority of our infrastructure is hosted in our own data centers in Frankfurt.
Our vision: To create data centers that combine both the economic and ecological aspects of clients and the environment with the greatest possible efficiency. Sustainable energy management – in other words, minimal power losses for air conditioning, power supply and peripherals – ensures that servers are operated in an economically attractive and simultaneously environmentally conscious manner. With a PUE value – the ratio between total facility energy and IT equipment energy – of 1.1 to 1.15, we are today’s leader in Frankfurt and worldwide. Our PUE value is on par with Google and in comparison, to the industry average of 1.8 we are about eight times more efficient or consume only 12.5% of the energy, which is consumed by an average data center.
At the same time, we aim to permanently offer high-quality service – 24×7 and on site. Based on our many years of experience in the industry, we are aware that these types of services are often limited and only basic tasks such as resets are carried out. We have consistently and successfully implemented these high standards and the result is a technically advance and economically attractive data center.
These high demands have paid off: Our sites in Frankfurt are certified by TÜV Saarland as highly available tier 3 data centers. Thus, guaranteeing the flawless operation of approximately 8,000 servers, which are already running for our clients as pure colocation or as dedicated servers.
Backup data centers in Vienna and Dronten
To realize a backup location, we also host server systems in Vienna and Dronten. These off-sites run independently, in addition to the two data centers in Frankfurt, which are interconnected with redundant dark fibers. Especially those clients with critical applications appreciate this possibility of a dual infrastructure as well as the inexpensive yet external backup storage with lowest latencies.
If you are keen to obtain services at one of our sites, simply contact us. We are happy to answer any questions you may have – we are always available for you by phone, email or in a direct meeting.
