Serverhousing at the HRZ

Serverhousing at the HRZ

The accommodation and network connection of customer servers in the HRZ takes place in a machine room specially designed for this purpose only. Access to this room can be gained by institute staff at any time (24 hours, 365 days a year) via a mechatronic locking system. Thus, it is possible to assemble the computer hardware oneself and to look after it at any time. The individual air-conditioned 19" server cabinets are also secured against unauthorised access by a separate locking system. The customer's servers are installed after a one-time cost contribution.

For whom?

Institutes of the University of Bonn

This service is exclusively for institutes.
