Rack cabinet and modules
A hosting company chose a colocation service in the rack due to: large amount of free space (47U), convenient 24/7 access to its devices, the possibility of electricity billing with a dedicated meter, remote reading of current power parameters and environmental conditions (temperature, humidity).
A brokerage office decided on this format of colocation service due to: security of the solution (monitoring, dedicated security features), access to power supply for infrastructure with a higher power density (10 kW), the possibility of creating architecture in georedundancy (one rack on the WAW-1 DC campus, the other in WAW-2 DC).
Box / Kiosk
Colocation of the racks separated from the other shared space by a steel cage or a compact kiosk. It is possible to use additional monitoring cameras and other dedicated security features.
|Dedicated 2N power circuits for each rack||Free 24/7 access|
|Client access control and CCTV surveillance systems||Online parameter monitoring|
|SmartPUE – energy cost optimization||Possibility of booking additional racks and warehouses|
Box / Kiosk
Global news agency
A global news agency requires that all its IT equipment be located in a separate, monitored space. Thanks to the cage, this requirement is met and additionally only the agency can manage the access to this area thanks to a dedicated access control system and a dedicated CCTV installation.
An insurance company uses the arrangement of a kiosk, and so it lowered the cost of the service, reduced the expenses for electricity (thanks to smartPUE) and maintains the required very high standard of physical security. The racks are in a dedicated space, access to which is managed by the IT manager of this company. Each entry is recorded, it is also possible to remotely view the video space in the kiosk.
Each server room chamber designed for a single client is adapted to the individual needs of the user in terms of security, energy, air conditioning and space arrangement.

A bank had been looking for the optimal path for the development of its IT services for a long time. It chose Atman and the Data Room solution, thus – without additional CAPEX investments – it cut the time of launching its new server room down to several months. From the beginning of using the service, it enjoyed full security, stable, professionally maintained and regularly tested infrastructure. Atman provided consultations, prepared and installed dedicated solutions. Every month, the client receives a transparent and detailed settlement of all costs along with technical reports. In addition, designated persons from the bank have access to access control systems and online parameter monitoring systems.
A financial agency struggled to find a solution that – in addition to high technical standards and physical and operational security – would offer a wide range of telecommunications options. Thanks to network neutrality and the presence of a large number of operators, these requirements have been fully met.
