Dataplace Utrecht is well equipped with security measures 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 NEN 7510 and ISAE-3402 type 2 certification as well as datacenter design certification. The site is secured with fencing and an access gate. The access gate provides access to the site using an access badge or access code. There is also 24/7 CCTV camera surveillance. Inside the datacenter, a security corridor located between the reception area and the data floors grants access to one person at a time. In this security corridor the number of persons and the presence of any goods are checked, and authentication is performed by means of an access badge in combination with fingerprint recognition. The same procedure, requiring an access badge in combination with fingerprint recognition, is used for accessing the data floors.
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.
