Dataplace Rotterdam is equipped with multiple security features and meets the highest standards of security certification. In addition to ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 27001 and ISO 50001 certification, the datacenter also has BORG4, NEN 7510 and ISAE-3402 type 2 certification. The site is secured with fencing which incorporates a power fence and multiple gates. The gates provide access to the site using an access badge or access code. There is also 24/7 CCTV camera surveillance. A circle lock is located between the reception area and the data floors and checks the number of persons and the presence of any goods. This circle lock admits no more than one person at a time to the datacenter's "secured area". Authentication in the circle lock is performed by means of an access badge in combination with fingerprint recognition. This method of authentication is also used for accessing the data rooms; they too can only be entered with an access badge in combination with fingerprint recognition.
All the data floors and technical areas are fitted with a redundant Very Early Smoke Detection Alarms (VESDA) system, which detects dust and soot particles. In the unlikely event of a fire, a gas extinguishing system will lower the oxygen concentration to a level that ensures the fire is quickly put out. The system uses Argonite: a mixture of Argon and nitrogen. This mixture of gases is stored under high pressure and is automatically released into the area in the event of fire. Unlike a water-based extinguishing system, this method of fire control does not damage your equipment.
