Data centers – the safe haven for your data

In the era of digitalization and the cloud, locally present data centers in the relevant countries are playing an increasingly important role for cloud providers. They are also gaining in significance among businesses in the enterprise sector, in certain industries and among ambitious SMEs. Meeting all of the security, availability and energy efficiency needs associated with your own data center can prove to be expensive. In hybrid or geo-redundant scenarios, setting up an additional data center site is unlikely to pay off. 
In our state-of-the-art Swiss data centers in the Zurich, Basel and Biel regions, we offer you an outstanding and flexible framework to accommodate your infrastructure and data. We are responsible for all the data center operations and, in combination with our network services, ensure a high-performance connection to your locations or to the key cloud providers. Our data center migration services help you to rehome your infrastructure and data quickly and efficiently.

Colocation services – from the rack to the cage

Our state-of-the-art data centers in the Zurich, Basel and Biel regions offer flexible colocation solutions in all shapes and sizes. They range from an individual rack to customized private rooms. Our Netrics specialists can also offer additional assistance with work on your infrastructure (e.g. installing and removing data carriers, storing and exchanging backup media, network cabling, etc.) as part of our Hands & Eyes services.

Infrastructure – Datacube Münchenstein

Unrivaled energy efficiency

Datacube′s design is based on cutting-edge energy efficiency standards. Its low PUE* value of 1.24 indicates an excellent ratio of processing power to other consumers such as the cooling system.

*PUE (power usage effectiveness): The closer the PUE value is to 1, the more efficiently the data center is running.

Enormous power density

When business is hotting up, Datacube has no trouble keeping pace. At peak times, around 10 kW of power are available per square meter, which equates to a potential annual supply of 87,600 kWh for each individual rack. That′s enough to keep 50 electric cars running for a whole year or to cover the annual power consumption of 16 households.

Maximum building security

Whether it′s providing fire protection, earthquake safety or cutting-edge access control using palm vein scanners, the state-of-the-art Datacube is equipped for every eventuality. As a measure of its high reliability, Datacube has been awarded Level 3 certification.
