Impressions of the cooling system at our data center in Nuremberg

This year, as we have proudly informed you earlier, we won the German Data Center Award for our data center in Nuremberg. An independent jury awarded us first place in category 6: "Increase in energy efficiency through reconstruction in an existing data center"

Today, we show you some impressions from our cooling systems. Day and night, they ensure that thousands of servers receive reliable air-conditioning in our data center in Nuremberg. 🙂


These pictures show you our redundant air-conditioning systems. They are highly efficient and state-of-the-art machines and use external air for cooling - leading to significant savings in energy consumption.

There you can see our double-pumping plant. It transports the cooling water into the data center. Should it ever fail, the second one will take over instantly and ensure that your servers will always receive the best cooling.

By the way, our website provides more information about our data centers.

Operation Christmas Child – Christmas in a shoebox

Thousands of children in Europe suffer hardship. Children who never get gifts because their families simply cannot afford gifts. But thanks to the organization called “Operation Christmas Child“ exactly these kids get some gifts simply wrapped in a shoebox.
This year Contabo also participated in the promotion and sponsored several of shoeboxes.

Since 1990, more than 100 million boys and girls in over 130 countries have experienced charity through the power of simple shoebox gifts from Operation Christmas Child.

The idea is quite simple:
Look for an empty shoebox, wrap the lid and the box separately in wrapping paper, decide if your gift is for a boy or girl (the age categories are 2-4, 5-9, and 10-14) and finally fill your box with new gifts like toys, hygiene items, school supplies, clothing and of course sweets. Everything that makes children's hearts beat faster, is allowed.

Yesterday, the shoeboxes sponsored by Contabo and its employees were picked up by a volunteer of the organization. According to the volunteer our boxes go to children in Serbia.

Contabo shoeboxesWishing them already merry Christmas is a little early, in my opinion, but we hope that the delivery will be without any complication in order that all gifts arrive at its new owners. Contabo wishes all recipients a lot fun with their Christmas surprise.
