Cage & CloudCage

Separated, but not isolated

  • From 3 racks possible
  • Area separated by fence or wall
  • Own access, on request with biometrically secured door
  • Cage also possible below the raised floor
  • Privacy screen and video surveillance bookable
  • Fix and Flex models available
  • Connection to the connectivity hub
  • Carrier-neutral support for data services
  • 24x7 access
  • Project support by EMC HostCo

A mere colocation space does not meet the security needs of your company or those of your customers?

Then we recommend our Cage or CloudCage model.

Cloud cages are already configurable from 3 racks.
Classic cages range from 10 to about 35 racks.

The Cage solutions include all the features of our colocation solutions, enhanced by a conversion of the customer equipment by means of a fence (cage), and / or walls.

Our Cage models are aimed at: cloud providers, business continuity applications, and classic IT outsourcing projects with the highest availability requirements and high physical security requirements.

High energy densities of up to 12kW per rack and contractually guaranteed availability of up to 99.999% are feasible.

Access rules and individual locking systems regulate how you get to your systems 24/7.

Project implementation will be done by EMC HostCo in a few weeks.
Then you have a cage with individual security features and a possible redundant connection to our connectivity hub.

Your own cage, because safety first

With a cage you get a separate and closed area on a colocation area to which only persons authorized by you can access via a biometric system 24/7 access.

Especially for applications with increased security requirements - such as private and hybrid cloud solutions, backup systems, enterprise data, IT outsourcing - this variant of data center utilization is ideal.

In a cage you will find basically all technical colocation features, supplemented by the conversion of your IT equipment above and below the double floor by means of a fence and / or walls.

Flexibility in size and design.

We realize a wide variety of cage solutions. Starting with so-called CloudCages of 3-6 racks, which can be equipped in the smallest space with the complete security features of a normal cage, up to cages with more than 30 racks, which accommodate entire IT corporate infrastructures.

"For our high-security, high-availability IT systems, EMC HostCo cage solutions meet our exact requirements"
(M. Kessler, CEO Global Access)

During the project we clarify details like:

  • Required energy connection, (achievable up to 2,500W per square meter redundant)
  • Security and monitoring systems such as biometric access, RFID chips, video surveillance or security tour of EMC HostCo personnel
  • Connection and connectivity issues such as the possible redundant connection to our DEC-CIX enabled connectivity hub, with connection to in-house cloud providers, service providers, carriers and external cloud connectivity.

Together with you we turn a square cage into a round thing!
