Data Center Biel focuses on international customers

Data Center Biel AG, an affiliate of DataHub Networks AG, has appointed Mathias-Ulrich Koch as CEO on a mandate basis. Mathias-Ulrich Koch has many years’ experience in the successful development and operation of international wholesale and data centers. With the formal launch of one of the largest – 2,400-kilometre – fibre optic networks in Switzerland via its affiliate DataHub Networks AG, he will be responsible for the development of the business with international and large Swiss clients who require such state-of-the art data services.

Together with its affiliate DataHub Networks, Data Center Biel is the only Swiss data center with the right to use 2,400-kilometres of fibre optic cable. These cables run alongside railway tracks and are networked throughout Switzerland via 46 access points at centrally located railway stations. The unique fibre optic network offers georedundant point-to-point connections for optimal site networking throughout Switzerland. With one of the largest fibre optic networks in Switzerland, we focus on the stability, and locational advantage of Biel (Espace Mittelland), as well a client base increasingly comprised of international companies and large Swiss companies,” said Mathias-Ulrich Koch.

This future-proof fibre optic cable technology, ensuring high bandwidth reserves for data transmissions, provides a major point-of-sale (POS) advantage to the DataHub Networks. The high performance and secure IT infrastructure, as well as exclusive services on the Swiss Big Data Highway provide further advantages. With a PUE of 1.35, Data Center Biel has an extremely high energy efficiency and is equipped for high-performance computing with energy densities of up to 15-20 kW per rack. This enables performance approximately ten times higher than that of traditional data centers.
