Platform DNSnetworks

DNSnetworks provides the global footprint of reliable data centres and established business ecosystems that accelerate growth. Our data centres provide global average uptime of >99.9999%. To ensure electricity is always available, our facilities provide a minimum of N+1 power redundancy. This ensures every mission-critical component has at least one backup power feed that kicks in when there’s an outage. We also store enough fuel on site to provide 24 to 48 hours of emergency power, and we have guaranteed fuel delivery contracts to replenish those supplies.


Some of the world’s foremost experts on power management engineering design and manage our data centre power systems. These power systems include built-in redundancy, full Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) systems with N+1 redundancy levels or greater, and backup generator systems in the event of a local utility failure. DNSnetworks teams also work with customers to configure data centre installations to accommodate specific high-power requirements.

Our precision HVAC systems cool the most demanding high-power deployments providing appropriate airflow, temperature, and humidity. This helps to maintain optimum conditions for equipment operation and to minimize downtime due to equipment failure. DNSnetworks sells AC and DC power in all regions (AC circuit voltage varies by region).


DNSnetworks provides effective colocation cooling measures and strives to be efficient and sustainable in its use of technology and design. Several of our data centres are LEED-certified. In Europe, DNSnetworks has received the Green Award from data centres Europe. Find out more about our green initiatives.

The physical security of DNSnetworks centres is one of our highest priorities. Each centre utilizes an array of security equipment, techniques and procedures to control, monitor and record access to the facility, including customer cage areas.

We use advanced security equipment, techniques and procedures to control and monitor access to our data centres. Reaching the colocation floor typically requires passing through five security checkpoints that include manned security stations, mantraps and biometric readers.
