Created for Denmark’s leading alternative provider of fibre network, data centres and cloud solutions, GlobalConnect, the solution is central to the company’s business case.
Because GlobalConnect’s customer portfolio includes server hosting for critical business institutions like banks and media organisations, the company guarantees its customers comprehensive redundancy and Tier classifications: “Security with extra security. And then an extra layer of security – just to be safe,” according to Senior Group Manager Tore Heide Villund.
When customers ask, if they can be sure GlobalConnect’s back-up power systems work, Tore Heide Villund’s confident reply owes a great deal to his faith in DEIF’s power management system: “We know it works, because we test it the hard way.”
“As well as monitoring operation rigorously and performing and documenting simulation tests, we put the entire system to the ultimate test twice a month by cutting our connection to the grid. As the UPSs kick in and the gensets start up, synchronising and identifying a reliable, quality power production level for our premises, you can’t get greater certainty, and that is the level we maintain.”
GlobalConnect covers Denmark, Northern Germany and parts of Sweden with a 13,000 km network of optical fibres and 13,000 m2 data centres.
