Contabo launches second data center

New Contabo data center
Steady growth needs space for development.
In order to meet the increasing demand for our hosting services as well as the quality requirements of our customers, Contabo will start operation of a second data center in Nuremberg, Germany, in March 2014.

The current data center in Munich with a data floor of around 350 m² will then be extended with a 1.750 m² data floor and 530 m² office and service premises in Nuremberg. Around 2.500 dedicated servers remain in operation in our Munich data center, while the new facility in Nuremberg will be capable to run another 10.000 dedicated servers.

The new location will be acquired in February 2014 already and it will be operated independently by Contabo. This will allow continuous improvements and expansions to guarantee the most stable and energy-efficient data center infrastructure.

Facts about the second Contabo data center in Nuremberg:
- 1750 m² data floor
- Raised floor, load-bearing capacity > 1000 kg / m²
- Inhouse transformer-station / power switching station > 2,4 MVA
- 3 x 600 kVA UPS (n + 1)
- Emergency standby system (diesel powered)
- 3 x 600 kW cooling capacity (n + 1), free cooling
- Internet connection using two different fiber directions into the building
- Carrier-neutral (almost any carrier available)
- Alarm system, observation cameras and security service
- Fire alarm system, smoke and heat extraction systems
- Access only via ID card
- Personnel on site 365 days a year

The first Contabo servers will start operation in the new data center early March 2014.

Contabo Christmas Party 2013

Last week all employees of Contabo came together on the roof top of the hotel Cristal in Munich in order to celebrate our annual company Christmas party. This years motto was "Hüttengaudi", which means, that the whole party was planned and decorated in a typical Bavarian and Austrian way.
traditional hutinside the hutinside the hutAt the beginning we played Bavarian curling, it's similar to ice curling but without ice :-). During the game we got selfmade mulled wine, punch and hot chestnuts to keep warm. After the dominant win of team "Edelweiss" we moved to the traditional hut close by where we spent a rustic evening with raclette and fondue.

The one who knocked in his nail as the last usually has to pay a round of schnaps, but this time, he only has to drink one, because this evening was completely sponsered by Contabo.
