Innovation and sustainability
In line with the company's vision that has always been aimed at improving products and processes, numerous investments characterize the beginning of the new decade: a new modern and functional office, the migration of the infrastructure into a world-leading datacenter , the systems management entrusted to the Momit company (www.momit.eu) and the commitment to sustainable and plastic-free development.
The constant growth in double percentage figures, the constant growth of human resources and the trust gained on the market have acted as a driving force and led the company to adopt these initiatives.
The most significant investment, with a view to an ever higher level of customer service, the expansion of the offer and the consequent need for processing resources, efficiency and security, is the new technological infrastructure located at the new datacenter SUPERNAP Italia (www.supernap.it), today the most innovative and advanced in Southern Europe.
The brand new datacenter, located in Siziano (Pavia), which stands out for its futuristic design, covers an area of 42,000 m² within a 100,000 m² campus in a controlled air traffic zone and guarantees the best technologies available in cyber security and Anti-DDoS and the best physical anti-intrusion security measures.
The SUPERNAP datacenter was designed and built according to the advanced standards of the LAS VEGAS Switch datacenter, classified Tier IV Gold and based on over 500 patents developed by the Founder and CEO of Switch, Rob Roy, luminary and revolutionary in the data center sector. SUPERNAP therefore ensures top-level protection systems, operational continuity, high performance standards, customer support and 24X7 structure monitoring, as well as a reduced environmental impact.
Greenpeace has in fact awarded the top marks for sustainability in the "Clicking Clean" report to the technologies at the base of SUPERNAP data centers. Patented innovations in terms of design, power, cooling and density produce significant and exceptional annual PUE (Power Usage Effectiveness) efficiencies.
Customers include large global companies such as Amazon Web Services and companies rooted in Italy, Wind Tre, Libero Mail, Siav, Italiaonline and ITnet.
Volocom is pleased to have chosen a solid, cutting-edge and eco-friendly reality such as SUPERNAP for colocation and connectivity services.
