DATEV extends QSC colocation contract by ten years
- High-security data centre for software specialist
- 100% availability from the start
Cologne, 22 July 2019 – DATEV has prematurely extended its colocation service contract with QSC AG by ten years. At its site in Nuremberg, QSC has since 2011 provided the specialist in software solutions for accountants, auditors and lawyers with its own data centre. DATEV manages central applications from the 1,000 m² data centre. In 24/7 operations, QSC offers services which include safeguarding the physical safety of the building, seeing to the energy supply and providing IT system cooling. All critical systems are designed with multiple redundancy. QSC also provides the dark fibre links to DATEV’s own data centres.
Absolute reliability as key factor
“In QSC, we have a partner that is absolutely reliable in looking after critical parts of our IT infrastructure. Since the contract began, there has been 100 percent service availability. QSC also offers great innovativeness and service focus”, reports Edgar Eck, DATEV’s Data Centre Director. To secure this quality of service and stability for the years ahead as well, DATEV had now decided to extend the contract prematurely.
Comments Rüdiger Hofer, Head of Colocation-Services at QSC: “We offer state-of-the-art colocation services to our customer DATEV. Alongside traditional services, these also include special security features, such as protecting the building against external interception.” Not only that, in recent years QSC had further enhanced its services and updated them in line with the latest technology. The electricity and climate control services, for example, had been continually improved without any interruption to operations. “We are delighted that DATEV has now decided to extend its cooperation with us for the coming years as well.”
