NETWAYS data centers

From the initial setup of your server in our fully air conditioned data center, the proper cabling, connection to the Internet, integration in our monitoring system up to standard environmental monitoring - your IT is in the best hands from the beginning.

We are currently using two data centers in Nuremberg for our customers, which are operated by partners. Both data centers are independently used by us with their own infrastructure (firewalls, load balancers , switches ).

Our data centers are redundantly connected to each other via fiber over two core switches with 10.000MBit/s. The sub-distribution within the data center is done via 1000MBit/s switches and two ports per customer's system.

Data Center 02 (RZ02)

Location

  • Deutschherrnstr. 15-19 - 90429 Nürnberg

Network Link
The multiple redundant up-links, including direct access to the main European exchange point in Frankfurt, Amsterdam, London, Munich, Vienna and Zurich ensure optimal availability.

Our uplink
We use a dedicated 1Gbit/s Uplink in this data center.

Power supply and Air conditioning
Because of an independent uninterruptible power supply of diesel engines and multiple line feed of the suppliers, the infrastructure is still fully accessible, if a supplier does not provide any power. The air conditioning systems are sized according to the n + 2 principle and always guarantee the cooling of all systems in the data center.

Security and Fire protection
Modern access controls, video surveillance of all angles, fire detection systems, security services, and extensive technical security measures  ensure along with trained and trained staff the optimal 24/7 protection for mission-critical data on the campus.
