"Planning and realizing the QITS DataSafe entirely with the Data Center Group was the right choice. The cooperation with the POCs of Data Center Construction was perfect in the crucial aspects."

Kai Wenzke (Head of Department Data Center, QITS GmbH)

The company's growth caused a higher data volume at QITS as well as increased data traffic and significantly increased security demands, especially for the sectors bank and insurance. In order to guarantee the highest standards, QITS designed a new data center with the security of a safe. The first step to a realization was an audit of Data Center Consulting.

It showed that a new data center would bring significant advantages for QITS. The relevant criteria were memory availability, higher capacities, increased energy efficiency, idealized room exploitation and cost improvement through lower electricity consumption. The decision by QITS to build a new data center was made regarding these points. Data Center Consulting brought the Data Center Group into the equation and because of the very good and competent exchange with its manager Ralf Siefen, the new data center was planned and realized by Data Center Construction. Planning began in autumn 2015 and the project, an entire highly available IT data center as an indoor solution with several technology modules, was realized within the next four months. 

The total area of the QITS DataSafe with integrated conference area for presentations and trainings is 350 m². The Granite Room as a highly available room system with an ECB•S-certification (DIN 1047-2) has a total area of 70 m², including the optics package. One of the unique features is the entire technical infrastructure that is class 3 high-available 24*7 TÜV-certified (certified data center) and hence, has a comprehensive and professional security concept.
