Cooling is one of the most important components of a data
In cold aisle cooling, the cool air is routed over the raised floor to the front of the racks, which face one another. This aisle is sealed by doors and a roof. The server systems suction the cool air and emit it as heated air into
In the cold aisle itself, a consistently low air temperature is maintained regardless of the location of the server system within a rack. The
An important aspect of the overall cold/hot aisle concept is the use of rack-optimised equipment. The cold air must be suctioned correctly at the front. The racks must also be properly sealed with panels to ensure that no hot air can get into the cold aisle. It is therefore essential that unused rack units are completely sealed. In order to be able to ensure this, and therefore contribute effectively to green IT practices, Nine conducts weekly inspections in the data
As a further contribution to green IT, Nine only uses power generated from renewable energy sources. Our travel is also completely climate-neutral thanks to our collaboration with myclimate (certificate 2021). Customers of Nine who want to run their server product in an eco-friendly way can add the CO2-neutral operation and/or eco-power options to their product simply by sending us an email.
Nine has two separate locations in Zurich. The production servers and backups are split between two locations. Both data centres are connected to one another using a redundant dark fibre ring. This connection allows for the redundant exchange of data between the two data centres at a speed of 2 x 10 Gbps. In addition, the ring connection ensures the high availability: If part of the ring is disrupted, the remaining parts take over the data transfer automatically.
Redundant emergency power systems with diesel generators and batteries.
Redundant climate control
Redundant Internet connectivity. All Nine products have 1 Gbps traffic flat included (except BGP-announcements)
Gas fire extinguisher system
Rigorous access control with biometric fingerprint scanners (at colozueri)
On-site security 24/7 personnel (at e-shelter)
Round-the-clock video surveillance
FINMA compliant facility (at e-shelter)
With the option Cert+ we are running your server in an ISO 27001 certified data center, using the guidelines of FINMA Circular 08/7 "Outsourcing Banks" (at e-shelter).
Cooling is one of the most important components of a data centre. The cooling system type and method are not only responsible for a substantial portion of the power usage, but also define the potential performance density and thus a data centre’s load intensity. Modern data centres use a principle called cold aisle containment, instead of cooling the entire area of the data centre itself.
At Nine, we use this cold aisle design for efficient energy use and are thus making an important contribution to a green IT.
As a further commitment to a green IT, Nine receives its electricity exclusively from renewable energy sources, and with the support of myclimate (certification 2021), we are completely carbon-neutral. Nine customers who would like to run their server product in an eco-friendly manner can easily add the option ‘carbon-neutrality’ to their product via e-mail.
