Our servers and racks are located in Frankfurt am Main, but why are we so enthusiastic about the location and why do we often call Frankfurt the "Internet Capital of Europe"? We would like to answer these questions and hope that the Münster residents among us will forgive us.
Right in the heart of Europe, Frankfurt is an ideal location for our clients who need high connectivity to target groups and markets throughout Europe. With close proximity to major European cities such as London, Paris, Amsterdam and Brussels, you don't have to worry about accessibility.
Frankfurt has an excellent digital infrastructure, including a high-performance fibre optic network and a wide range of Internet Exchange Points (IXPs). The DE-CIX (German Commercial Internet Exchange) in Frankfurt is the largest internet exchange point in the world and provides a fast and reliable internet connection. Of course, we are also connected to it.
Absolutely indispensable for us: A reliable power supply! In 2020, the SAIDI value (average interruption duration) was 10.44 minutes across Germany, and just under 7 in Frankfurt. Thanks to our reliable emergency power backup, we keep our customers' backs up even in the incredibly rare event of a problem.
No matter how you want to travel, Frankfurt Main Airport (EDDF), Germany's largest commercial airport, and the main railway station with connections to the whole of Europe make it easy to reach us. So if you want to have technicians on site yourself for certain projects, or if you want to visit our data centre, nothing stands in your way.
Frankfurt is an economic centre of Europe and is home to a large number of multinational companies, financial institutions and technology companies. This concentration of economic activity creates a high demand for capacity and gives the region and our location corresponding security.
Germany has strict data protection laws and high security standards, which can be crucial not only for us but also for your own clients. Especially in the current information age, there should be no compromises when it comes to data integrity and infrastructure protection.
Frankfurt has increased its focus on environmental sustainability in recent years. We rely on environmentally friendly technologies and source renewable energy to reduce our carbon footprint and keep up with the latest standards.
Together, these reasons should demonstrate quite clearly why FFM has been a popular and proven location for data centres and other IT infrastructure for years. Especially the reliability of the supply is crucial for us and, of course, for our customers: nobody likes downtimes, nobody likes long waiting times. That's exactly why we are in Frankfurt.
