Green Datacenter Zurich West 1 + 2, Switzerland
The Lupfig site is located west of Zurich in an easy to access location. It is far away from hazardous zones, yet centrally located within the Zurich-Basel-Bern business triangle.
From the very beginning, greenDatacenter Zurich West was designed for highest availability. All systems required for operation are duplicated. Multiple feeds are used for the power and emergency power supply, and the connection to the data network. And these feeds are even separately routed within the data center.
Four security perimeters protect the data center against unauthorized access. Security measures include biometric access systems.
The Swiss Federal Office of Energy awarded greenDatacenter Zurich West the Watt d'Or 2013 for exemplary energy efficiency in the buildings and space category.
