Highly available and energy-efficient data center

The IT provider plans to put its fifth data center into operation here from 2024. Twelve system rooms will provide space for more than 700 server cabinets so that corporate customers can securely operate their IT infrastructures from there - whether housing, hosting, the operation of complete IT infrastructures or cloud services. Akquinet is managing the construction and operating the data center. Like the twin data center operated by Akquinet in Hamburg and Norderstedt, the new colocation data center is specially designed to meet the needs of customers with high demands on security and availability. In the data center, all supply paths are duplicated.

Dennis Preljevic (r. in the picture), Akquinet's project manager, and Thomas Tauer (2nd from r.), managing director for Akquinet's outsourcing division, concreting a time capsule into the cornerstone of the new data center with customers and partners.

Availability is to be 99.991 percent. By optimizing the measurement and control technology, the new data center is expected to achieve an annual PUE value of less than 1.25 in full operation. The PUE (Power Usage Effectiveness) value relates the energy consumed to the energy consumption of the IT infrastructure. The closer the value is to 1.0, the more energy-efficient a data center is.
