The Rhein-Ruhr 1 delivers data-center services based on more than 300 globally unified standards that NTT Com's Nexcenter™ facilities have implemented for equipment and operations. The facility has adopted the industry's top standards to ensure high availability and energy savings. The total receiving power is seven megawatts. The emergency power supply is ensured by two separate systems.
In Europe, NTT Com delivers data center services in Austria, France, Germany, Spain, Switzerland and the UK (see Appendix 1). NTT Com expands its data center business to the Rhein-Ruhr region, one of the most expected data-center markets in Germany mainly serving the customers from the public sector.
"We provide the infrastructure that Germany needs for the future", says Rupprecht Rittweger, e-shelter CEO and founder. "At first sight, you may perceive just a building fulfilling its purpose as a data center. But the conceptual design of our data centers goes much further. Data centers will be even more important in the future, they are a foundation for digital sovereignty in our country."
