Data centers

For the operation of our services we use multiple data centers, which house the servers of us and our customers. Our data centers are chosen for their security, emergency facilities, low (green) power consumption and location. Below you will find an overview of our data centers with the facilities that you will find at that location.

Data centers general

While we don't host the same products in every data center, there are a number of security and facility features that apply to all locations.

Security

To guarantee the security of our servers and our customers' servers, our data centers have physical surveillance, consisting of security personnel and a CCTV system. The Building Management System (BMS) is the system that manages and further monitors the data center. This allows the NOC / NMC employees to control the power supply, access, alarm systems, humidity, cooling, leaks and environmental variables.

Cooling

We use so-called cooling alleys to cool the data center. These are closed paths in which cold air is blown up from the tiles. This cold air is then sucked up by the servers in the racks by the 'fans', after which the warm air is discharged through the back of the racks. With this cooling technique, 30-50% more efficiency is achieved than with conventional cooling techniques.

Energy

Our data centers have the energy effectiveness usage certification, which complies with the strictest European environmental requirements. We make use of 100% green electricity from Greenchoice windmills. To ensure that fluctuations and interruptions in the power supply do not affect the service, our data centers have a non-break UPS system and a backup generator.

Carrier neutral

The PCextreme data centers are carrier neutral, which means that the data center is completely independent of network providers. This has enabled us to expand the PCextreme network to any desired provider and we can switch providers at any time when necessary.
