First Colo data center


Housing & Co-Location for the highest level of demands


The miniaturised illustration of our data centers shows what a server room in your own company would have to do in order to fulfil the demands of a modern data center. The operational aspect would be a costly matter! Legal security directives, your own quality requirements and restrictions caused by enforced use of your own structural realities often make implementing data center infrastructure in the company’s location either very complicated or virtually impossible. First Colo operates co-location sites in modern and secure data centers in Germany, and at geo-redundant locations across Europe. In Frankfurt we operate a data center divided into two sections in adjacent wings of a building with separte cooling circuits, fire compartments and colocation sites covering a total of more than 1,800 m². Our overall IT infrastructure is designed with full redundancy, and meets the highest levels of quality and security. By providing enough staff and component capacity we are even able to implement larger IT projects at short notice. The outsourcing of IT services as part of your corporate decision-making is therefore a timely and worthwhile alternative to having your own server room.
