LCL invests € 1.9 million in new data center in Diegem

Given this, the lion's share of the investment, € 1.3 million, has been in the data center's technological infrastructure. The technology installed in the new data center includes a state-of-the-art fire extinguishing system that uses NOVEC 1230, the safest extinguishing agent on the market in terms of human safety and the environment. As a result, Diegem 4, the third building at LCL's Diegem site, is the site's most sophisticated building.

Video: How we test the back-up systems?

The mains supply enters our data centers through an uninterruptible power supply (UPS). As soon as the UPS detects a power outage, the batteries take over. At the same time, the diesel generators start working. These generators are able to keep the data centers supplied with power for weeks if necessary. All of these systems are duplicated at least once, which means that any problems that affect one component will not stop the power supply to the entire data center.

Comatose servers consume energy and require cooling, just like other servers, but they do not serve any purpose. Nothing would happen if they were switched off. Many companies are unaware of the amount of unnecessary spending on comatose servers. This illustrates how important it is that companies invest in a good IT infrastructure. Companies can achieve substantial energy savings by tracking down and switching off comatose servers. Professional data centers such as LCL can help them with this. We can reduce their energy consumption by applying our know-how and by bringing equipment together.

In September our CEO, Laurens van Reijen, wrote a blog post on comatose servers, which you can read here.

Storing data on an SSD or a classic hard drive?

For some time now we have no longer been storing data exclusively on hard drives (HDD).
