The entire power supply of the data center Berlin Spandau is designed as a dual power and emergency power supply with an uninterrupted A and B supply and with an additional redundant power supply for all critical technical building equipment such as air-conditioning, cooling, ventilation, and security systems. In addition, the data center Berlin Spandau has two feeds on the 10 kV level.
UPS and associated battery systems are designed redundantly for each A and B supply and can bridge the power supply for at least 15 minutes at 100% maximum load. The generators are controlled automatically, so that the generators start on their own if a power supply fails. The available fuel can power the entire electrical supply of the location for 72 hours without interruption.
For the interior of the colocation area of the data center Berlin Spandau, special, non – combustible or very flame-resistant materials were used exclusively. Individual data center areas are divided into separate fire protection zones. Extensive fire fighting and fire protection systems are installed in each zone.
Physical, technical, and personnel safety is ensured by a 6-level security system that monitors everything from the data center grounds and the respective buildings, through to the colocation area and individual systems:
