The Datotel data center in St. Louis is laid out completely redundant, all functions are monitored continuously, and numerous security systems protect the servers from being accessed by unauthorized persons. The data center in Frankfurt fulfils even the highest security standards of major European banks. All TVMSERVER servers stand in a highly secure environment and are protected from dust, humidity, fire and water. Special door systems, video surveillance and particular security services provide an effective, complete anti-burglary protection at all times.
The climatization of the TVMSERVER data centers follows the principle of N+1 redundancy on full load. All climate modules have a standby compressor and are fed in turns over a redundant climate circuit (a and b). Each circuit consists of a running and a standby pump. Only about 75% of the available cooling capacity is needed to run the data centers at full load.
The permanent power supply is secured by a sophisticated redundancy concept of multiple power suppliers with several uncrossed conductors. If there is a power outage in spite of this, a UPS (uninterruptible power supply) guarantees that all important components are supplied with power until the emergency power generators take over. For stability reasons, multiple emergency power generators have been installed
- Capacity: 36 hours at full load
- Refuelable during operation
- Contract enabling refueling within 180 minutes 24/7
The TVMSERVER data centers are protected 24/7 by security services. Video surveillance of the external facilities, entrance areas and the internal facilities ensures that no unauthorized persons can enter the technical service area.
Specific Admission Control
Photo ID systems, biometric palm scanners, and card systems on all inner doors allow only authorized persons to enter the data centers. The entrance gate with safety glass and steel walls in the entrance and exit area complete the data centers' integrated security concept.
Two-stage detection systems as well as three-stage fire protection ensure operation even in case of a fire. Early-detection systems for smoke and the automatic peripheral sprinkler systems (Marioff Hi-Fog-System) provide timely protection for the critical systems in the data centers and TVMSERVER hardware against fire damage.
