Black-Building-Test successful: Long-term power supply proved!

Yesterday a so-called "Black Building Test" (BBT) as part of our ongoing maintenance and testing of technical systems was successfully performed.
During this test we simulated a complete
blackout of the public power supply in our data center. In "real life" such a blackout can be caused, for instance, by works on mains electricity or through lightning strikes in high-voltage power lines - just to name a few scenarios.

Precisely in order to be independent of those power failure scenarios, we have a powerful, uninterrupted power backup for our data center.

The successful BB test that took place yesterday proves us, and thus our clients, continuing readiness of the redundantly configured UPS systems with appropriate batteries in our datacenter. These machines provide uninterrupted power to our servers during a power failure...

... before our emergency diesel genset, with 1800 kW and more than 50.000l fuel in its tank, is in operation and does supply the whole power needed by our servers completely independent from the electricity grid for a long time...

Exclusive Insight: Contabo data center in Nuremberg!

In addition to various other (large) projects, whose positive results will soon be visible on our website, the commissioning and further maintenance of our second data center in Nuremberg was of course one of our major tasks in 2014. Our second data center location does not only provide the necessary space for further development, but also offers our customers many new opportunities for their server operation, for example corncerning colocation services:  by means of targeted site selection (Munich/ Nuremberg), our customers can now decide for themselves where their own servers and technical equipment are located in future.

This innovation and many other improvements will be found shortly on Contabo.com.

But before publishing all further news regarding the new data center in Nuremberg on our website, we would like to give you some impressions exclusive here on our company blog:
