Through the digital transformation of the economy it is becoming more and more important that companies’ IT and data are accessible consistently and without downtime. An important basis for this is the secure power supply and cooling in the data center in which they are housed.

At Global Access, we set significantly higher requirements, in order to guarantee your company the best quality. Power supply and cooling in Global Access’ data centers are characterised above all by three features:

  • Through redundant structures and diesel-driven emergency power systems, we can guarantee the most secure and stable power supply and cooling, even in the event of a power outage.
  • Through optimal use of technology we ensure the highest efficiency and therefore more economical energy use.
  • Through our use of 100% green electricity, we’re able to organise the use and supply of information technology in an environmentally friendly way. The use of renewable energy sources does not just include the general electrical needs of the building and the terminals, but also the cooling (read our Eco-Electricity-Certificate).

The exact technical specifications about power supply and cooling in Global Access’ data centers is available in the table further down this page.

Rely on us for security and environmental protection at the same time. We’ll gladly explain to you everything clean IT energy can do!
