Data centre – maximum security in accordance with German standards

  • ISO 27001 certified

  • 100% of data stored in Germany

  • Electricity from 100% renewable sources

Our largest data centre in Berlin is one of the leading and most secure data centres in Europe and was designed for maximum security and availability. This applies to the entirety of our IT infrastructure and all services. Cronon BSP and its data centres are exclusively located in Germany.

The data centre has multiple redundant external connections to ensure maximum possible availability. Sophisticated and highly professional power supply and early warning systems ensure operating stability. Our data centre is monitored 24/7 with all physical access strictly controlled.

100% of the electricity used to power our data centres comes from renewable, CO2 neutral sources. We use branded hardware and the latest processor technology to further reduce our power consumption.

Professional technology for your security

Cronon AG Professional IT Services is part of the STRATO AG affiliated group and a reliable partner for long-term cooperation with its own state of the art colocation space.

The data centre has ISO 27001 certification from TÜV Süd (availability, security). Bandwidth totalling 500 Gbit is available for external connections. There are a total of 7 main lines to the outside (4x 100 Gbit, 2x 20 Gbit and 6x 10 Gbit lines) that take different routes. The data centre connection uses Juniper MX Core Routers that can handle multiple times this bandwidth.

Direct connection to the largest data exchange node in Germany, the DE-CIX in Frankfurt. There are 2 connections between the Berlin data centre and the DE-CIX which we have further secured using our own redundant ring closure. There are additional connections within Germany as well as to the Netherlands and the USA (Equinix Ashburn).
