Why Choose Saas in our Datacentres?

DNSnetworks expert staff has been designing, building, and maintaining IT infrastructures in our datacentre locations and on premise at client locations through our IT managed services across Canada for over 14 years.

We recognize that proximity counts, for both a redundancy and disaster aspect our datacentres are over 6000 km apart and covers a wide spread network IT footprint for all Canada businesses.

We know how important reliability and uptime are, so we designed our IT infrastructure so that its built in a multi-tenanted fashion, in order to provide business continuity. That being said our Tier III design are being met at our primary datacentres located in Ottawa, Canada.

Paris, France

Our Paris campus comprises seven interconnected datacentres that provide not only access to France and southern Europe, but also plenty of opportunity to expand

High Density Computing in Paris Datacentre

France offers very attractive energy prices and we’re ready to help you make the most
of them. We can cater to the most demanding high-density power needs without
compromising efficiency and sustainability, ensuring that you enjoy the highest levels of
performance

Operational Excellence

Like all of our data centre campuses, Paris operates in full accordance with the
ITILv3 framework and has ISO 27001 and ISO 22301 certifications. We combine
state-of the-art systems and processes to monitor and manage operations 24×7,
combining on-the-ground local teams with centralised oversight by our 24-hour
European Customer Service Centre (ECSC).

Sustainability

We commit to 100% sustainable energy with the EDF Certificats Équilibre. Our PUE
measures, even where using mechanical cooling and in an always-on environment,
are exceptional by any standards. We use free cooling and a custom cold-aisle
containment solution to support higher power densities on low raised floors more
efficiently, reducing the overall cooling overhead by as much as 30%. All of our
data centres in France and our Paris headquarters are ISO 140001:2004 and
OHSAS 18001- certified. PAR7 is ISO 50001:2011- certified and Code of Conduct
accredited.

Security

The whole campus is monitored 24×7 by CCTV and on-site security guards. There
are multiple access barriers, including mantraps, contactless key cards and biometric
readers. You can also add your own security systems to a cage or private room

Resilience and Business Continuity

From 24×7 monitoring and alarms for every critical system to incident management
and business continuity processes, we build high levels of redundancy and service
assurance into our data centres:

CONNECTIVITY: dual-entry fibre from two separate carrier main routes; rapidly installed
Cross Connects, including campus-wide Cross Connects over a dark fibre network
between all campus buildings.

POWER: secured supply; two power feeds for all equipment, each independently
equipped with UPS and generator backup with full load capacity for indefinite running.

ENVIRONMENT: SLAs on temperature and humidity in line with ASHRAE
recommendations; N+1 cooling; sophisticated water and smoke detection systems;
advanced fire suppression in line with local regulations and designed for maximum
safety and minimum damage.
