Maximum data center security thanks to the ideal location
Switzerland is considered to be one of the best data center locations in the world. The reasons for choosing Switzerland as a data center location are its top class infrastructures, top quality standards, high level of legal security, economic and social stability, and comprehensive data protection.
Data centers are just like any other property: Their value is primarily determined by their location. But location is even more important for data centers than for other properties. A data center location needs to be sufficiently far away from cities, where it is protected from earthquakes and floods, and not in the immediate vicinity of flight paths, highways, railway lines, or high hazard buildings and industrial plants. It took several months to find the ideal location for greenDatacenter Zurich West.
greenDatacenter Zurich West is Switzerland’s first freestanding, fully commercial data center designed to fulfill a single purpose. A decision against mixed use, as is usual in other data centers, was made at the very beginning to ensure data center security. The building’s only windows are the three surveillance center windows.
