datadock Strasbourg

Datadock in Strasbourg is one of the most secure data centres in Europe. Its sophisticated security and redundancy model was created in order to guarantee the highest availability of your data.

In the version 3.0 of the Datacentre Star Audit, our data centre datadock, achieved five stars, the highest score possible. The DCSA is conducted by the eco Association of the German Internet Industry and is an independent cachet for data centres. During the auditing DCSA 3.0 the data centres were judged after being assigned criteria by at least two independent auditors.

Same quality and security standards as in Germany

The European privacy policy states minimum standards for adequate privacy protection, which are to be ensured by national laws. This applies to Germany as well as France, meaning the use of our servers in France does not affect the quality and security standards and would be the same as it is for our customers in Germany.
