Data center Nuremberg South Multiple awards and certifications
Colocation in Nuremberg
The Nuremberg location houses the headquarters of noris network AG. Directly next to the headquarters is the multi-award winning Nürnberg Süd data center with a floor area covering 11,000 square meters. Today, Nürnberg Süd is one of the most modern and energy-efficient high-security data centers in Europe.
With innovative and patented solutions for air-conditioning, energy supply, fire and perimeter protection, we offer the highest level of colocation in Nuremberg! We offer you suitable racks as well as tailor-made cages – individually tailored to your needs.
TÜViT TSI Level 4!
As one of only a few data centers worldwide, construction phase 2 of the data center Nuremberg South was planned and built according to the TSI.STANDARD requirements of TÜViT in Level 4. This TSI.STANDARD quality level stands for very high protection requirements and maximum availability.
Which areas are covered by the certification?
The following areas are examined and evaluated during the final certification:
Fire protection, alarm & extinguishing technology
Safety systems & organization
Structure of the cabling
Data center network
A systematic review of the submitted plans and documents as well as extensive on-site inspections determine whether the defined Level 4 requirements for the data center meet the current TSI.STANDARD.
TSI certificate as standard in data center security and availability?
For years, the TSI.STANDARD and thus the TSI certificate have been among the de facto standards as proof of data center security and availability. Thanks to our early alignment with the requirements of Level 4, our new data center in Nuremberg stands out in particular and sets standards in Germany. As a customer, you can thus rely on proven security and availability! For more information, please visit the TÜViT (TÜV NORD GROUP) website. The goal is to complete the certification before the end of this year.
What are the advantages for you as a customer?
through an expanded zone concept, increased construction requirements and more personnel.
through a more elaborate redundancy concept.
Since 2016, the TSI.STANDARD also verifiably covers the requirements of DIN EN 50600 in full. This means: With the construction method according to the requirements for the TÜViT TSI Level 4 certification of our second construction phase, we automatically also cover the requirements of DIN EN 50600 and receive an additional EN 50600 certificate after successful testing.
