Data centers place high demands on physical security in relation to the building and its location, as well as the access and monitoring systems used.

Our DC campus is located in the north of Munich, in a traffic-calmed zone of a business park. Earthquakes and flood hazards are excluded in the region. The campus is open 365 days a year, 24 hours a day.

The mostly windowless multi-storey building in solid reinforced concrete construction has no sub-excavations and has a video-monitored fence in the access area.

The safety zones are defined according to DIN EN 50600 in class SK4 . All data center areas are biometrically secured, video-monitored and equipped with separation systems. Only approved entrees or accesses after registration, including complete logging, will take place.

* Upon request, racks can be connected to our centrally administered electronic rack locking system.
