Data Center

High security, performance and availabiity

Our TIER 3 data center meets all security and performance standards and
has been running interference-free for more than four years. 

High-speed connections and the best security possible

The InterNetX first-class data center in Munich fulfills all the requirements of a modern high-security data center. Our high-end equipment complies with the highest standards in climate, electric  and security technology. In terms of performance, the multiple redundant connections with a bandwidth of more than 50 Gbit/s, leave nothing to be desired. 

Your energy saving bonus - up to 30% less consumption

Thanks to our energy-efficient cold aisle containment you will save up to 30% on energy costs compared to conventional solutions.


Ecological electricity supply - 100% hydro power

The power for the infrastructure components in the InterNetX Tier 3 Data Center is supplied 100% through hydropower. This is assessed and certified by TÜV-Süd (CMS Standard Generation EE+).

Certifications

Authenticated data security and quality of service

InterNetX follows international security standards and holds several certifications. Reliable protection and expert hardware and software support are top priority at InterNetX, so you can fully rely on the certified security of our data center and technical service.

ISO/IEC 27001

Information is of strategic importance in the process of value creation. It is becoming increasingly important for companies to be networked globally. At the same time, the threat of data theft is ever present.

For this reason, effective management systems are needed to guarantee data protection that is both viable and economic. Acknowledged worldwide, the standard for information security management, ISO/IEC 27001, offers this protection and is implemented by the InterNetX data center.

ITIL

The IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL®) lists best practices in IT service management (ITSM) and is an international standard for IT service features like setting up IT infrastructure procedures and structural organisation.

InterNetX operates along ITIL® guidelines, following the company handbook with respect to the central service desk, processing of service requests, as well as incidents and change requests.

RIPE - Réseaux Européens Network

RIPE, Réseaux IP Européens, is one of five Regional Internet Registries (RIRs) providing Internet resource allocations, registration services and coordination activities (IPv4/IPv6 addresses, AS numbers) that support the operation of the Internet.

The RIPE NCC (Network Coordination Center), located in Amsterdam, is a independent non-profit membership-based organisation. InterNetX is a member of "Réseaux IP Européens" (RIPE).
