As well as having a very secure building, DARZ is committed to maintaining the highest levels of quality and security in terms of its data center infrastructure, and as it is situated in Germany, it is also subject to strict data protection regulations. The company’s motto says it all: “Data is more valuable than gold”. As a full service provider, DARZ offers a wide range of products within the fields of colocation, managed services and consulting to ensure that projects are tailored to meet customers’ needs and desires.
