Leipzig. 11 October 2019. Yesterday the Tele Columbus Group inaugurated its new data centre in Leipzig where P?UR Business is headquartered. The building was constructed according to the latest standards and offers on 1,400 square metres space for data storage in a high security environment and under German data sovereignty.
P?UR Business continues to support its customers in mastering the ever-rising demands towards data security by having inaugurated its new data centre. HL komm Telekommunikations GmbH, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tele Columbus AG, which offers B2B solutions under the P?UR Business brand is certified according to ISO 27001 for the basic IT safety and according to ISO 9001 for its quality management. In the new data centre in Leipzig, the entire process chain starting from the data storage, processing and supply thereof can be offered according to German privacy laws and under German data sovereignty.
From standard racks starting at ten units via isolated security areas with own power supply, a geo-redundant data centre concept, a central firewall solution as well as a 24/7 service to the new P?UR Business portfolio.
Equipped with the latest transmission technology, the data centre is an integral part of the P?UR Business backbone. This allows for redundant connections with available bandwidth of up to 100 gigabit per second.
With a PUE score of 1,2 (which stands for power usage effectiveness at 100% usage) the new P?UR Business data centre scores best in class for energy efficiency. The power supply is sourced from fully renewable energy thereby meeting the requirements of the German industrial norm DIN EN 50600-4-3.
As a high-security and high redundancy data centre the entire complex was constructed according to DIN EN 50600 requirements and will meet the demands of the second-highest security class 3. Given the duplication of critical supply systems like the air conditioning, network connection or power supply a high redundancy can be guaranteed.
"We are proud to have constructed such a state-of-the-art data centre at our Leipzig-based headquarters which is constructed according to the highest security standards and which will offer our customers comprehensive solutions based on German data privacy laws", highlights Richard Fahringer, managing director of P?UR Business. "As a partner for digitalisation we are managing Germany-wide the challenges arising from the increased requirements in terms of IT security for companies and are offering tailored solutions from the Mittelstand for the Mittelstand".
Torsten Bonew, mayor for finances in the city of Leipzig, appreciated in his opening speech the entrepreneurial spirit of the Tele Columbus Group and its investments in Leipzig as a business location: "Thank you that you want to grow with us".
By opening the new data centre in Leipzig, P?UR Business reacts to the increasing demand for data storage and processing. Besides the 1,400 square metres of data centre space, additional capacity is available for offices. The modular concept of the building allows for a doubling of the data centre of up to 2,800 square metres in the future.
