Paris, France

Our Paris campus comprises seven interconnected datacentres that provide not only access to France and southern Europe, but also plenty of opportunity to expand

HIGH DENSITY COMPUTING IN PARIS DATACENTRE

France offers very attractive energy prices and we’re ready to help you make the most
of them. We can cater to the most demanding high-density power needs without
compromising efficiency and sustainability, ensuring that you enjoy the highest levels of
performance

OPERATIONAL EXELLENCE

Like all of our data centre campuses, Paris operates in full accordance with the
ITILv3 framework and has ISO 27001 and ISO 22301 certifications. We combine
state-of the-art systems and processes to monitor and manage operations 24×7,
combining on-the-ground local teams with centralised oversight by our 24-hour
European Customer Service Centre (ECSC).

SUSTAINABILITY

We commit to 100% sustainable energy with the EDF Certificats Équilibre. Our PUE
measures, even where using mechanical cooling and in an always-on environment,
are exceptional by any standards. We use free cooling and a custom cold-aisle
containment solution to support higher power densities on low raised floors more
efficiently, reducing the overall cooling overhead by as much as 30%. All of our
data centres in France and our Paris headquarters are ISO 140001:2004 and
OHSAS 18001- certified. PAR7 is ISO 50001:2011- certified and Code of Conduct
accredited.

SECURITY

The whole campus is monitored 24×7 by CCTV and on-site security guards. There
are multiple access barriers, including mantraps, contactless key cards and biometric
readers. You can also add your own security systems to a cage or private room

RESILIENCE AND BUSINESS CONTINUITY

From 24×7 monitoring and alarms for every critical system to incident management
and business continuity processes, we build high levels of redundancy and service
assurance into our data centres:

CONNECTIVITY: dual-entry fibre from two separate carrier main routes; rapidly installed
Cross Connects, including campus-wide Cross Connects over a dark fibre network
between all campus buildings.

POWER: secured supply; two power feeds for all equipment, each independently
equipped with UPS and generator backup with full load capacity for indefinite running.

ENVIRONMENT: SLAs on temperature and humidity in line with ASHRAE
recommendations; N+1 cooling; sophisticated water and smoke detection systems;
advanced fire suppression in line with local regulations and designed for maximum
safety and minimum damage.

Mexico

This world-class datacenter in the city of Mexico, featuring diverse connections leveraging the Telefonica and Movistar network, advanced security and fire suppression systems, uninterrupted power supplies (UPS), and a high-capacity backup diesel generator.

▪ Regulated and uninterruptable power supplies (UPS) to address the possible failures or breaks in the external supply.

▪ Electrical connection with the electricity company (CFE). (Electrical sub-station).

In order to ensure service continuity, it is provided with 2 transformers of 220 Volts AC, which in a parallel way with the emergency plants, feed the transmission, data and switching equipment. The CFE Company supplies the data center with a 13.2 KVA AC voltage.

▪ Generators (Emergency Plants) and Transference.

On-site data center has 2 emergency plants, which one is the backup of one another. Each plant has a capacity of 750kW, sufficient to supply all the equipment installed. In case of interruption or variations by the electricity company, both plants are automatically turned on and start operating simultaneously distributing the electrical load as follows: one of the plants supplies power to the switching equipment and the other for transmission equipment and data platforms.

• The charge transfer is done automatically or manually by the transfer phase to one or another emergency plant in case of having trouble with the electricity company or with any of the plants. The manual process is done when it is performed preventive or corrective maintenance on a transformer, generator, battery bank or directly on the substation. The data center is provided also with 2 tanks for Diesel with 7500 liters capacity each, in order to ensure the supply of fuel there are several agreements with Diesel suppliers

▪ Rectifiers and DC plants

▪ AC conversion supplied by transformers and generators to DC is performed by direct current plants, which have 3 battery banks each with up to 8 hours of autonomy charge. There are 2 DC plants with a 4000 amp / hour capacity each. Although, this plants normally operate one for switching and one for data and transmission, in case of any problem, either one can withstand the total charge of all DC equipment. The transfer phase performs this (automatic or manual) charge switch.

▪ UPS Some other equipment necessarily require AC power (modems, PCs, measuring equipment etc), this power is provided by the UPS, which delivers a regulated voltage of 120 and 220 VAC. In order to ensure the provisioning of AC, the UPS battery bank supports up to 4 hours at full charge.

Detection systems and fire extinguishing to counteract the effects of possible short circuits that could threaten the rest of the equipment installed on the Data Center. Through FM200 gas based systems equipped with nozzles and smoke detectors located in both the upper area of equipment and also in the false floor.

▪ Access control and closed circuit system for regular surveillance of the whole facilities.

▪ Air Conditioning Equipment

▪ 24 hours a day monitoring in each of our platforms with the support of Centro Nacional de Monitoreo y Control (National Center for Monitoring and Control)

▪ The personnel working on-site are highly trained.

▪ Set of guards available to assist you 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

▪ At all times, there is support and experience provided by several areas of expertise such as technical support, transmission and among others.

▪ Live Support with equipment vendors such as: Cisco, Nortel, Ericsson, Tellabs and Alcatel; this allows to be at the forefront of knowledge and specialized equipment.

▪ Easiness to perform maintenance windows according to your request for any update of your services.

▪ Within the area of data center there are measures of disaster recovery plans in order to deal with major force failures inside critical areas of communication.

▪ The data center has a highly prepared group for contingency plan

SECURITY

Hosting Data Center has a perimeter security scheme that allows in and out Firewall rules according to the need of the end customer.

In the Firewall it is restricted unwanted ports and protocols. “Deny All” policies are applied and the ports are open per request.

In the beginning of the service it is configured a profile named WEB Security Profile.

Communications

Connectivity to the Data Center: there will be connectivity options available via the Internet or via VPN MPLS.

Network and Data Transfer: The hosting Data Center packages include a default schema of large bandwidth Network and Data Transfer, in which a pay per use is made. Each package includes a monthly transfer volume

Only in case of exceeding the transfer consumption, a fee per GB of data surplus is paid.

Alternatively it is offered a choice of connectivity with guaranteed bandwidth, in which a fixed amount is paid monthly.

There are different speeds of guaranteed bandwidth ranging from 512K up to 10 Mbps. Internet connectivity is Default, but you can choose IP Multiservice (MPLS VPN)
