WE INVEST IN OUR
INFRASTRUCTURE - FOR YOU

Our datacenters provide only the best,
latest and most rapid premium hardware

 
 

TECHNOLOGICALLY ALWAYS ONE
STEP AHEAD

 
 

Our infrastructure is designed for maximum
security and performance. Our technology is distinguished by the following characteristics:

SSD
 
 

EXTREMELY RAPID SSD

Samsung Flash memories are manufactured using innovative 3D-V-NAND architecture, in which 32 cell levels are stacked, instead of trying to reduce the cell length and width in order to accommodate the memory in today's ever smaller equipment. For your servers, we always make use of the latest processor generation by Intel. The result is a higher density and better performance, while using little space. It also constitutes a breakthrough in overcoming the density limitations of conventional NAND architecture.

PREMIUM XEON PROCESSORS BY INTEL

For your servers we always make use of the latest Intel processor generation. These have been specially designed for datacenters and allow for better interaction between the computer, data storage and network technologies.

 
 
 

STABLE FOUNDATION:
THE DATACENTERS

Datacenter ZH 5
 
 
 

SecureRack sets the highest possible security requirements and operates its servers at the Equinix datacenters ZH5, ZH4 and ZH1 in and around Zurich. These datacenters have been certified according to the standards of the Swiss financial market authorities, FINMA.

 
 
Datacenter ZH4
  • The energy supply is guaranteed, thanks to two different and independent sub-stations (transformer stations)
  • Medium-voltage supply using our own transformers
  • Two independent power circuits supported by an uninterruptible power supply (USV/UPS)
  • Generator backup with N+1 configuration
  • Water-cooled system with an additional ammonia and hybrid cooling step
  • Sensitive early-warning system for fires and automated fire-extinguishing system (Hi-FOG)
  • Physical and biometric access control
  • Central infrastructure monitoring (CCTV/BMS), 7 x 24 x 365 security service
  • Certifications: PCI-DSS (FINMA directives), ISO9001/27001, FACT (Federation against Copyright Theft)
  • Uptime datacenters: 99.999% (High availability)
 
 
 
Swiss Quality

100% SWISS

All your servers and data are 100% located in Switzerland. Our infrastructure is distributed over several datacenters in Switzerland. In addition, we offer all our customers full transparency regarding the exact location of their servers and where their data are stored (datacenter, rack).

The high legal security, the strong data protection laws and Swiss tradition of confidentiality make Switzerland an ideal location for your company.

Certification

CERTIFICATION DATACENTERS

The use of introduction points to the ZH4 and ZH5 datacenter provides us with a fully redundant network installation within the Equinix campus. This set-up provides us with a fully redundant physical and logical network installation within our datacenters. The datacenter has ISO 9001 and ISO 27001 certificates and is FINMA-compatible.

YOU HAVE NEVER
BEEN THIS SAFE!

 
 
Network

NETWORK

We have established direct links to all Swiss networks (e.g. SWISSCOM, UPC Cablecom etc.) to ensure optimal connectivity to the Swiss Internet. This implies that data packets will be transferred directly, thus ensuring maximum security for all data transmissions within Switzerland. We use some of the best European service providers and link up with Asia through connections to the two largest Asian service providers. Data packets to Asia are directly routed to Asia, without a detour via European or American partner companies

Firewall

FIREWALL

All our quotations include professional firewalls. You also have the option of defining individual firewall settings for each server and to activate an additional firewall where required. Your servers are therefore protected by several firewalls. Only a few small and medium-sized companies have security structures of such high quality today.

 
Encoding with AES hardware support

 ENCODING WITH AES HARDWARE SUPPORT

All our servers have commands for hardware-supported AES encryption. This allows them to encrypt their data in real time using AES 256 bit. It is one of the safest encryption methods available today, without adversely affecting the performance capability of your server. The speed of encryption is ten times higher than without hardware support.

Virtualisation

VIRTUALISATION

Our virtualisation technology is based on KVM servers. This technology facilitates a complete separation of VM and the hypervisor operating system. This separation is much safer than container-based virtualisation in which VM and host share certain operating system elements. Most VPS offers on the market work with container-based virtualisation that does not satisfy our security requirements.

 
high level of segmentation

HIGH LEVEL OF SEGMENTATION

Each unit of our environment includes 12 hypervisor servers. This unit is completely independent, has its own CISCO firewall, own storage access and own administration and backup logic. This high level of segmentation into completely independent units significantly improves security.

customer isolation module

CUSTOMER ISOLATION MODULE

Secure VLAN: CIM facilitates safe sharing of VLANs between VMs

Private VLANs: CIM allows each customer to own an individual network segment (hardware VLAN)

CIM firewall: CIM includes its own firewall, which provides an additional level of security
