Data centers – the safe haven for your data

In the age of digitalization, data centers play a decisive role for companies from the enterprise segment and for ambitious SMEs. This is particularly true when it comes to scaling, the level of flexibility required today and cost optimization. Meeting all the security, availability and energy efficiency requirements associated with your own data center can prove to be expensive. In hybrid or georedundant scenarios, setting up your own data center site is unlikely to pay off. In our state-of-the-art Swiss data centers in the Basel, Biel and Zurich regions, we offer you an outstanding, flexible 
framework to accommodate your infrastructure, applications and data. We are responsible for all data center operations and, in combination with our network services, ensure a high-performance connection to your locations or to the major cloud providers. Our data center migration services help you to rehome your infrastructure quickly and efficiently. On request, we can also assist you with our IMAC services (install, move, add and change) with respect to dismantling your data center, any associated waste disposal, or converting the space that has become free.

Six data centers in the Netrics network

Our three own and three leased data centers offer good coverage in German-speaking Switzerland and are fully connected to our backbone and important main internet nodes (PoPs, “points of presence”). All six data centers are carrier-neutral and have connections to major hyperscalers such as Microsoft Azure (Express Route), AWS and Google Cloud.

Our journey together to the data center

Outsourcing infrastructure to an external data center is a complex undertaking. Our six-step Netrics compass is designed to help you navigate your journey and achieve quick, effective and quantifiable results. Whether you’ve already begun your journey or are still at the planning stage, as an experienced partner we’ll accompany you every step of the way to the data center.

Inspiration

What to expect
We support you in all phases and processes as part of innovation or installation. Our comprehensive advisory service for data center infrastructure goes through the following structured steps:
  • Strategic advice
  • Support during the tender process
  • Support in the selection process for guidelines, regulation or marketing strategies
  • Assessment of data centers, infrastructures and risk management, geared towards a second opinion
How you benefit

You get professional input for your individual data center infrastructure, allowing you to make a confident decision.

Analysis

What to expect

Would you like an analysis of your current in-house data center? We analyze your existing data center with respect to the criteria of air conditioning and cooling, raised floors, rack installations, fire extinguishing, protection and sub-distribution in the data center, uninterruptible power supply and structural measures. We carry out a range of tests and you get a comprehensive report with recommendations for action.

How you benefit

You get an exact picture of your current data center’s actual situation and, based on our final report, you can confidently make decisions about how you want to meet your data center requirements in the future.

Evaluation

What to expect

We offer project planning services, from small server rooms to large turnkey data centers, both internal and external:

  • Planning for all SIA sub-phases
  • Complete planning of electrical, cooling, air conditioning and
    building automation systems
  • Planning for comprehensive security concepts
  • Development of facility management concepts
    (technical facility management)
  • Design of fire protection concepts, including obtaining permits
How you benefit

Netrics fully supports you in all steps of data center planning and relieves you of most of the administrative tasks that come with it. We pay attention to energy efficiency, security and compliance with regulations from the very beginning.

Implementation

What to expect

We develop and implement customized solutions in an interactive process. Depending on the starting point and requirements, this includes different tasks:

  • Design/redesign of existing data centers, retrofits
  • Space utilization optimization
  • Entire data center solutions (innovation or installation)
  • Building architecture/structure in connection with new or changed use
You can migrate your infrastructure to the Netrics data center yourself, or we’ll take care of it for you as part of our data center migration as a service offering. You can carry out structured cabling yourself or have us handle it for you. We will take delivery of the materials required and store them until needed.
How you benefit

You can decide what tasks you’d like to carry out yourself and what ones you’d rather outsource to Netrics. On request, we can take care of all of the tasks relating to your move to the data center. You receive a full service and can use the innovative data center services for your business activities within a short period of time.

Operation

What to expect

Once the system is operational, you can make modular performance upgrades at any time, increasing capacity. If you don’t want to perform technical on-site work yourself, a specialist Netrics team is at your disposal.

We also ensure that data centers work without any problems even after new innovations have been implemented and renovations carried out. We are able to offer you this security through our years of experience. The tasks include:

  • Arranging/structuring operating concepts
  • Operational organizations, running operational units
  • Facility management
  • Support and certification under the applicable TIER or ISO standards
  • Migrations: planning, organization and execution

Do you know how much your in-house data center is costing you?

Many companies run their own data centers but record the expenses in separate calculations, failing to examine the overall costs involved. We help you calculate the total cost of ownership (TCO) of your data center. You’ll find out how to lower your CAPEX and discover how much it is costing you to run your IT infrastructure (OPEX). You’ll learn how an outsourcing model could help you optimize your costs.
Request your TCO now

Do you sleep better even though your IT infrastructure is in someone else's hands? Or precisely because?

Regardless of whether you have already started your journey or are still planning it - as your partner, we accompany you in every phase with know-how and experience. During the step-by-step transformation, the agile approach enables the fast and efficient achievement of partial results. At the same time, we establish sensors and measuring points as a basis for the ongoing further development of the implemented solution. After the transformation, we guarantee the reliable and secure operation of your solution by maintaining the service level defined in the operating model.
