e-shelter’s Munich 2 Data Center, Germany
The Munich 2 data center is situated in the north of Munich, in Unterschleißheim approx. 25 km as the crow flies from e-shelter’s Munich 1 site. The Munich 2 data center was planned as a dedicated data center new build and is being developed in several building stages. On a plot which is more than 18,000 sqm large, about 6,200 sqm of data center space is being developed in two building stages. The first building stage was completed in May 2017.
The site was selected on the basis of an extensive risk analysis to satisfy the high requirements for security and availability. The provision of electricity, connection to data networks and protection against natural hazards were all given particular consideration here. In Munich 2, a cooling by groundwater is also used, which has been developed for maximum energy efficiency.
