Availability class 3 confirmed
PŸUR Business data centre in Leipzig successfully certified
Berlin/Leipzig, 10 June 2021. The Leipzig West data centre of HL komm Telekommunikations GmbH, a subsidiary of Tele Columbus AG (PŸUR Business), has been successfully certified in accordance with DIN EN 50600 availability class 3 and TSI.STANDARD V4.2 Level 3.
The Leipzig West data centre combines state-of-the-art technology and optimal energy efficiency with TÜViT-verified data security. After extensive tests, the TÜV NORD has certified the new PŸUR Business data centre with security and availability class 3, in accordance with DIN EN 50600. It also fulfils the additional requirements of the Trusted Site Infrastructure (TSI) in its current version (4.2).
In order to meet this security standard, it must be ensured that all active components in the power supply system are redundant and therefore fail-safe. Further criteria are increased anti-burglary protection, securing of the supply lines, a high level of fire safety with an appropriate extinguishing system and the continual monitoring of all operating conditions.
The requirements of security level 3 were taken into account during the data centre’s construction and had already been fulfilled by the start of operations. The certification officially confirms the adopted measures.
Under the PŸUR Business brand, the Tele Columbus subsidiary HL komm has two modern data centres in Leipzig and Berlin with a total area of 3,200 square meters. Both have obtained at least TSI 4.1, level 3 certification and are free for immediate use.
