We're excited to announced that Digital West has partnered with the Green Group in Switzerland to offer colocation in three of its state-of-the art data center facilities: Zurich West 1, Zurich West 2 and Zurich North. Located in the heart of Europe, Switzerland is considered to be one of the best data center locations in the world due to its quality infrastructure, high level of legal security, economic and social stability, and comprehensive data protection.
Colocation at these facilities includes power, cooling, cabling and fiber optic connectivity with more than 30 different carriers. Power supply and Internet connection are supplied via separate, redundant infrastructures. The data center has its own transformers within the building, and diesel generators to provide autonomous emergency power at all times. These high-end features are just some of the reasons that companies like Axpo, Hewlett-Packard, Nord Stream and AppRiver colocate there.
As “sister” data centers, Green will also be offering its customers colocation at our primary data center in San Luis Obispo, CA. We'll provide them with offsite storage and system redundancy. “We aim to remain at the side of our customers when they expand their business abroad. We are delighted about the partnership with Digital West, since it guarantees the high standards which our customers have come to expect,” said Green CEO Franz Grüter.
Digital West’s partnership with Green Datacenter is not our first expansion outside of California. In 2013, we set up a new point of presence (POP) in Sydney, Australia and another in the New York metropolitan area to better serve our customers that do business globally.
Businesses looking for colocation options outside of the United States for disaster recovery or alternative access purposes can trust their equipment in the state of the art Swiss data center while still receiving the local support and service that Digital West provides.
