Data center Werkhaus (Frankfurt am Main)
Located in the east of the city, the data center is only a few minutes’ walk from Europe’s largest peering-point, the DE-CIX. Therefore, the site provides ideal conditions for optimal connectivity. With space for about 400 racks or 16,000 servers on 1,200 square meters, we have enough space available to grow for years to come. We would be happy to invite you to a personal tour.
When finalizing the concept for this project, we had a vision: Creating a data center that combines economic and ecological aspects of clients and the environment with the greatest possible efficiency. Sustainable energy management – meaning low power dissipation for air conditioning, power supply and peripherals – ensures that servers are operated in an economically attractive and 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.
In contrast, our goal has always been to assist clients in any given situation with our skilled technicians. Whether components should be replaced, a raid array should be repaired, or a software problem should be troubleshot. We have consistently and successfully implemented these high standards and the result is a technically advance and economically attractive data center.
We have fulfilled these high requirements consequently and successfully. The result is a technically advanced and economically competitive 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 4,000 servers, which are already running for our clients as pure colocation or as dedicated servers. In addition to the certification ISO 27001, the certification ISO 9001 guarantees a flawless operation of the data center.In contrast, our goal has always been to assist clients in any given situation with our skilled technicians.
