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:
