The combination of being a Swiss company and a cloud service provider at the same time, is also regarded in our security architecture and infrastructure for n’cloud.swiss.
We live in times that shake up everything we thought we knew about Data and System security. Energy crises, changing political interests and surveillance scandals, DDoS or other cyber attacks are common threats nowadays. We protect from external influences. On the borders of the Greater Zurich Area, in canton Uri, the birthplace of Swiss independence, we built n’cloud.swiss in a safe haven for data and its systems – in probably one of the safest data centers in the world. A home for the most important assets of your business – Your data,. Your ideas. And our ideals. » Together, we create an environment.An environment born from hyper security for a changing world.
Deep inside a granite mountain and surrounded by nature, the data center is free from external influences. No vibrations from urban infrastructure, no outages from civil works and no overloaded power networks. Unlike in urban locations, there are no security lockdowns or riots. It’s a secure haven for your data, whether you go for the service model offered by n’cloud.swiss or for your technical environment in case you go for the n’cloud.swiss on-prem option. In both cases you’re embedded in environment born from hyper-security for a changing world.
Neutrality and Independence are two of the key features for the ideal location to store your data. These are also fundamental principles of Switzerland. In combination with its Political and Economic stability it is easy to understand why Switzerland is consistently ranked in the top five best countries to host your data in. Our data center operates in the context of the world‘s most robust privacy laws. Located in one of the founding cantons of Switzerland, close to the birthplace of Swiss independence. Free from political instabilities. Sheltered by the Swiss Federal Data Protection Act.
Hidden in a former Swiss military bunker in the Swiss Alps – our data center is free from the issues posed to a Datacenter by densely populated areas; vibrations, overloaded energy networks, civil works and construction to name but a few. We use the natural environment to provide peace of mind for critical data and systems.
Power must be available at all times in the digital economy. Efficient energy use has become a central issue in Datacenter design and management.Canton Uri, home to the data center is independent form the world’s energy market and produces its own hydro-electricity in the Swiss Alps, ensuring a stable energy supply in a safe environment. Energy is always there, always green.
The data center is located right on one of Europe’s major backbone routes giving us low latency access via domestic and international carriers. We are connected to Europe’s major peering points and internet exchanges. The facility is nestled in nature away from threats of the urban environment while still being connected to the entire world.
We know, that due to topology and political environment, building such a hyper-secure haven as in Switzerland can’t be achieved all over the world. However also other data center infrastructures for n’cloud.swiss around the world will be selected according to our own specific high security standards and therefore be selected or built-up after corresponding verification processes.
Being ISO certified is not only a key for the organization and it’s processes but also includes certification for the data center area. SECURITY is therefore not only a commercial and marketing instrument – it’s a process in the core of all our activities.
