Data center 2 data center with EN 50600 certification Data Center 2 has gained Class 4 EN 50600 certification, confirming compliance with the highest level of the European standard. This means the facility provides customers with the highest levels of physical security, service continuity, and energy efficiency. This is particularly important for organizations where uninterrupted availability to IT services and business continuity are priorities. Data Center 2 is currently the only data center in the EU with the highest level of security confirmed by two independent bodies: the ANSI/TIA-942 Rated 4 certification and the EN 50600 Class 4 standard.

EN 50600 is an official standard of the European community, which defines standards for key areas related to a data center’s architecture, operation, and maintenance. The standard places particular emphasis on ensuring adequate levels of security, infrastructure availability, and energy efficiency. The European Commission adopted the standard which was subsequently ratified by EU member states, including the Polish Committee for Standardization in 2014. EN 50600 certification is granted for two years, with recurring comprehensive audits required for its renewal.

First data center in Europe with two prestigious certifications

Certification in the highest, 4 Class was obtained by Data Center 2. This is the same facility, which in 2016 was the first data center in the European Union to meet the criteria for international Rated 4 ANSI/TIA-942 certification. At that time, the facility successfully completed the certification process in all audited areas, i.e. architecture, mechanics, power supply, and telecommunications. The Rated 4 level means that the potential yearly downtime of data center services is limited to a maximum of 26 minutes, when comparing to Rated 3 facilities who have an exposure to unavailability in the amount of 96 minutes per year. has now successfully completed an audit of all its data halls in Data Center 2, confirming their compliance with the EN 50600 standard at the highest Class 4 level, the most important certificate classifying data centers on the old continent. Since the launch of the facility in Poznan (strategically located halfway between Warsaw and Berlin) in 2016, it has delivered 100% uptime to its customers.

Thorough audit

The awarding of the Class 4 EN 50600 standard to Data Center 2 was preceded by a detailed audit conducted by an independent certification body. Among other things, the auditors conducted a thorough review of the redundancy of power, cooling, and communications systems r. The data center’s resistance to external factors such as fires and flooding was also analyzed. The building’s structural performance was also measured, as well as energy efficiency. Overall, each of these areas received the highest possible rating.

From the point of view of data center customers, an independent certification is the only way to independently assess and objectively confirm the quality of a facility, both in terms of its security and continuity of service delivery and energy efficiency. Data Center 2’s possession of two independent international certificates at the highest level indicates that we are ready to serve the most demanding enterprises, which, due to the profile of their business or industry, must have 100% confidence in the procedures applied by the provider and a guarantee of service continuity. This set of competencies places us at the forefront of European data centers, points out Wojciech Stramski, CEO.

Recommendations from regulators

EN 50600 certification is of particular importance for companies in regulated industries, including finance, insurance, and healthcare. The Office of the Financial Supervisory Commission of Poland recommends that data centers and cloud providers involved in maintaining the IT infrastructure of customers in regulated industries meet the requirements of the standard EN 50600 at minimum at a level of Class 3. As of February 2020, according to the Polish Ministry of Digitization’s regulation “National Cyber Security Standards,” Level 3 is also the lowest acceptable level for providers processing data for the public administration and the private sector.
