In order to guarantee the continuity of your IT infrastructure, our data center in Alblasserdam has been set up completely redundantly.

All our internet connections, the power supply, cooling, fire prevention measures and our monitoring systems are designed to be fully redundant through duplication. The datacenter is fully configured for high density hosting and housing solutions.


Dataplace Rotterdam has a ring-configured connection to the mains power grid. Two separated voltage circuits run from the main distributors to the 19" racks on the data floor: one directly from the main distributor (short-break) and one via a no-break system via the UPS system. All the racks are provided with power feeds protected by 32 Amp or 16 Amp fuses. If mains power is lost, electricity will continue to be supplied to you via the no-break power feed. The no-break power supply consists of a UPS system configured for redundancy (N+1) and two generators. The UPS systems can supply power to the datacenter for more than four minutes. As 13,000 litres of diesel are held in stock to supply the generators, Dataplace can operate for more than 50 hours independent of the mains power supply, if necessary.
