Our data centers at a glance

The gridscale high-security data center in Frankfurt is an example of how consistent protection against all external and internal threats works. This includes elaborate security precautions in combination with unauthorized access and fire protection, air conditioning and the risk factor of water, as well as a continuous and, if necessary, self-sufficient power supply at all times. 

With its property and data protection measures, the gridscale data center in Frankfurt is one of the most modern facilities in Germany. Access to all sensitive areas is restricted to authorized technical and security personnel only and takes place exclusively via multi-level control systems, motion sensors and singularization locks. In addition, the 24-hour guard service verifies all authorized persons and carries out regular walk-throughs and checks. Hundreds of cameras ensure uninterrupted monitoring of the site and all premises.

Building access strictly regulated: Central 24×7 on-site controls

Comprehensive fire protection measures are designed to prevent risks from excessive heat from arising in the first place. The data centers therefore have automatic smoke and fire alarm systems as well as a powerful high-pressure extinguishing system. Water has a particular risk potential with respect to IT. Small leaks in air-conditioning systems, for example, can cause irreparable consequential damage. The data centers therefore have water detectors with automatic leakage localization. Sensor cables in the double floor immediately identify any leaks, allowing them to be tackled in a targeted manner and at an early stage.

In the most extreme case: high-pressure gas extinguishing system

Multiple redundant air-conditioning systems maintain the right “operating temperature” in the data center. Modular recirculating air cooling units for the IT areas and peripheral ventilation systems with energy-optimized operating points ensure energy-efficient cooling production. Adherence to the climate specifications is monitored remotely.

External cooling and central supply and exhaust air supply

The gridscale data center has a redundant, fully independent power supply and a multi-level security system for the energy provision. In addition to its own transformer station and powerful UPS systems, this also includes the availability of emergency power batteries and several diesel generators, including storage tanks with special resupply contracts. If the primary power source fails completely, the data center can continue to operate without interruption and without any restrictions, even at full capacity.

Diesel Generators with emergency stockpiling

Not only high-performance access to your data and systems, but also the Internet of Things and other network-based real-time services place high demands on the quality and reliability of the data center connectivity. Fiber optic lines and multiple redundant high-speed connections with direct access to central Internet nodes and carrier hubs ensure a lightning-fast connection of your IT with the “outside world”.  

Direct connections to central interconnection points 

The gridscale data center is certified according to the strictest national and international standards by renowned accreditation bodies. Comprehensive certifications document the quality of the technologies used and the high level of service in dealing with demanding business IT. These include, but are not limited to, certifications for IT security such as ISO 27001 or for sustainable energy management such as ISO 50001. The data center is assigned to the high security level TIER-3.

We share our knowledge!

Many companies are considering using the services of international cloud providers. In addition to the global players from the USA, Asian providers are also expected to establish themselves in this environment. When selecting the right provider, it is important to avoid common mistakes right from the start. A foreign company headquarters and non-European data center locations are central, but by no means the only risks cloud users face.  

We share our knowledge with you. On our corporate blog and in the form of detailed market studies, field reports and white papers. The checklist “Legal risks when using international cloud providers” by the renowned law firm Heuking ensures more transparency in the selection process and gives business and IT decision-makers a compact overview of the most important pitfalls.
