State-of-the-art Data Centre for Leipzig

New Data Centre of PYUR Business inaugurated

- 1,400 square metres for state-of-the-art IT security solutions

- Data storage under German data sovereignty

- Power supply sourced via fully renewable energy

Leipzig. 11 October 2019. Yesterday the Tele Columbus Group inaugurated its
new data centre in Leipzig where PYUR Business is headquartered. The
building was constructed according to the latest standards and offers on
1,400 square metres space for data storage in a high security environment
and under German data sovereignty.

PYUR Business continues to support its customers in mastering the
ever-rising demands towards data security by having inaugurated its new data
centre. HL komm Telekommunikations GmbH, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tele
Columbus AG, which offers B2B solutions under the PYUR Business brand is
certified according to ISO 27001 for the basic IT safety and according to
ISO 9001 for its quality management. In the new data centre in Leipzig, the
entire process chain starting from the data storage, processing and supply
thereof can be offered according to German privacy laws and under German
data sovereignty.

From standard racks starting at ten units via isolated security areas with
own power supply, a geo-redundant data centre concept, a central firewall
solution as well as a 24/7 service to the new PYUR Business portfolio.

Equipped with the latest transmission technology, the data centre is an
integral part of the PYUR Business backbone. This allows for redundant
connections with available bandwidth of up to 100 gigabit per second.

With a PUE score of 1,2 (which stands for power usage effectiveness at 100%
usage) the new PYUR Business data centre scores best in class for energy
efficiency. The power supply is sourced from fully renewable energy thereby
meeting the requirements of the German industrial norm DIN EN 50600-4-3.

As a high-security and high redundancy data centre the entire complex was
constructed according to DIN EN 50600 requirements and will meet the demands
of the second-highest security class 3. Given the duplication of critical
supply systems like the air conditioning, network connection or power supply
a high redundancy can be guaranteed.

"We are proud to have constructed such a state-of-the-art data centre at our
Leipzig-based headquarters which is constructed according to the highest
security standards and which will offer our customers comprehensive
solutions based on German data privacy laws", highlights Richard Fahringer,
managing director of PYUR Business. "As a partner for digitalisation we are
managing Germany-wide the challenges arising from the increased requirements
in terms of IT security for companies and are offering tailored solutions
from the Mittelstand for the Mittelstand".

Torsten Bonew, mayor for finances in the city of Leipzig, appreciated in his
opening speech the entrepreneurial spirit of the Tele Columbus Group and its
investments in Leipzig as a business location: "Thank you that you want to
grow with us".

By opening the new data centre in Leipzig, PYUR Business reacts to the
increasing demand for data storage and processing. Besides the 1,400 square
metres of data centre space, additional capacity is available for offices.
The modular concept of the building allows for a doubling of the data centre
of up to 2,800 square metres in the future.
