Equinix's Frankfurt data centers are among the world’s most carrier-dense, thanks in part to our partnership with DE-CIX Frankfurt, the largest Internet exchange point in the world. Equinix’s Frankfurt colocation facilities also provide access to the Kleyrex and DataIX Internet exchanges. What’s more, Frankfurt is one of Europe’s leading financial centers and a hub for banking, commerce and manufacturing.
10 Mega Watt of electrical power are provided to the servers. The system is entirely redundant and equipped with double conversion UPS systems.
Redundant power generators:
The data center is equipped with autonomous power generators with underground fuel tanks able to provide energy to the entire data center even at full capacity. These generators start providing energy after the batteries from the UPS system.
Redundancy of air conditioning systems:
The air conditioning systems in server and power rooms are made of multiple redundant appliances with a cooling capacity of 1.5 kW/m².
Bandwidth of 20 Gb/s:
Our installation benefits from a bandwidth of 20 Gb/s, provided through fiber-optic connections to the most important national and international service providers and to the main network access points (NAP).
The data center has automatic fire detection and suppression systems, harmless for the people and the electronic appliances. A system dedicated to the detection of leaks and flood is also present. The building is also equipped with armored doors and windows, an intrusion alarm system and a biometric access control.
Finally, a close circuit television system (CCTV) enables the monitoring of the entire building.
The data center is controlled by a monitoring team 24/7 and 365 days a year and is moreover monitored by the technical team from Aruba’s NOC (Network Operations Center).
