Zurich City Data Center
The concept and location for our Zurich City Data Center are fully aligned with the needs of the financial services industry: the data center is close enough to downtown Zurich for fast data transfers but still a safe distance away, in line with regulatory requirements.
Right from the outset, the underground facility was designed as a maximum security data center specifically tailored to the financial industry and is located only 8 km from the banking district. Concepts with two or three availability zones can also be implemented. Zurich City Data Center provides excellent connections to other Green sites such as Zurich West Campus, Zurich North Data Center and as of 2022 also to our new Zurich Metro Campus.
The benefits of our Zurich City Data Center
The comprehensive security concept is based on certified processes – technical, human and physical. Trained security staff are present at the data center at all times. The facility is located underground and designed to withstand flooding for additional protection.
The data center provides workspaces and emergency workstations for customers and is conveniently located on the western outskirts of Zurich on a low-risk site. Zurich City is close to the financial center and easily accessible from the Zurich-Basel-Bern business triangle as well as Switzerland’s Crypto Valley in the area of Zug.
High level of reliability
The redundant power supply as well as the cooling via the district cooling network and our own cooling equipment ensure a particularly high level of reliability for the data center. Connection via independent fiber-optic cables guarantees availability.
