Enterprise Hardware: New Data Center in Germany

New Data Center in Germany

In late 2015 we have introduced new powerful hardware in Chicago, providing our clients top-notch performance. Now we are ready to move on to the next location with enterprise-grade hardware in our new Frankfurt Data Center located in Germany.

Being in the heart of Europe, Frankfurt DC ensures performance and trust without compromise.

For the power and workload to fuel your best business ideas, the Frankfurt DC is built on the latest Intel Technology, using industry-leading Intel® Xeon® processor E5 v3 family to deliver record-breaking performance and reliability that can handle data-demanding and traffic-intensive applications.

Also, new hardware eliminates any risk of downtime or single-point failure using dual 10Gbps uplinks to the world.

Clients from Europe and nearby regions will benefit from greater connectivity, reduced latency, increased reachability levels, faster disk I/O, and the latest central processing units. Hardware upgrades include:

Network possibilitiesDual 10Gbps uplinks to  the world
RAM memory at Frankfurt DCDDR4 ECC RAM (Double Data Rate 4th Generation Error Correcting-Code Dynamic Random-Access Memory)
Memory ExpressNon-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) backed distributed storage.

The exact date of the next hardware upgrade will be revealed this fall, but one thing we know for sure – São Paulo, Brazil – get ready for changes!
