LINZ, & ATTINGHAUSEN--()--The modern cloud solution has a solid feel to it. With the worldwide unique concept of cloud locations Fabasoft guarantees its customers the security of knowing where the data storage takes place. The new cloud location Switzerland guarantees that data can remain 100% within the country.
“The concept of cloud locations is unique. We offer our customers freedom of choice and the assurance of knowing where their cloud data is stored. With the new cloud location in the Swiss alps we have achieved a further milestone for more security in the cloud.”
Fabasoft’s Folio Cloud offers customers efficiently structured business applications for targeted collaboration with business partners via the internet. This means high agility and speed in the implementation of business processes across company and country borders.
Conversely, the more extensive the possibilities, the more important familiarity becomes. Fabasoft is based in the “steel city” of Linz and is already well known, with Fabasoft eGov-Suite installations in federal departments and administrative bodies. This proximity to Switzerland has now taken on a physical dimension with the concept of cloud locations.
Helmut Fallmann, Member of the Fabasoft AG Managing Board: “The concept of cloud locations is unique. We offer our customers freedom of choice and the assurance of knowing where their cloud data is stored. With the new cloud location in the Swiss alps we have achieved a further milestone for more security in the cloud.”
“Natural wonder meets Swiss engineering prowess.”
Michael Imfeld, Vice President of Sales/Marketing at Deltalis, who built and operate the new main data center for the Fabasoft cloud location Switzerland, emphasizes the unique combination of “natural good luck” and the most modern computing: “Because of cooling needs many data centers are located in faraway cold regions. However, the 1000 meters of granite above and cold groundwater enable a highly energy- and CO2-efficient facility in the middle of Switzerland. Just 1-2 data milliseconds from Zurich, Zug or Luzern – and less than an hour away by car.”
It isn’t by chance that the command center of the Swiss National Defence was, for a long time, hidden in this mountain near Attinghausen in Canton Uri. Only recently, all theoretically possible disaster and terror scenarios were run through for highly sensitive data storage. The conclusion, according to Michael Imfeld: “It is the most secure data center in Switzerland. Full stop.” The worst case down time per year is 5 minutes and 16 seconds, almost twice as good as what the strictest legal regulations prescribe.
Alongside security, Michael Imfeld attaches great importance to ensuring that the facility is “anything but a damp bunker”: “Dryness, light, real office feeling… like a multi-story company head office, just inside a mountain rather than in the countryside or in an exposed site in the city.”
