Contabo operates three own locations for VPS and Dedicated Servers. The ultra-modern ""green data center" in Munich (EU 1) was constructed and built by Contabo in 2009 and has enough room for 4,000 servers. The second data center in Nuremberg (EU 2) has been launched in 2014, and it offers space for another 10,000 dedicated servers. On both locations the office rooms are in the same building, only one level above the data floor.
In 2020, Contabo opened a third location in St. Louis, Missouri, USA (USA 1). The current capacity of this facility is set at 1.500 servers with an option to expand as business grows.
All three data centers are state of the art, especially when it comes to operational safety and energy efficiency. Contabo invests large amounts in the maintenance and optimization of its entire data center infrastructure every year. This allows Contabo to offer their customers a stable and - thanks to low operational costs - economical hosting platform, while at the same time protecting the environment as much as possible.
The EU locations are located in different cities being several hundred kilometers apart from each other, and both are powered by different electricity suppliers (SWM and N-Ergie). Moreover, the US location offers further the opportunity to diversify while serving the American market with a low latency. Due to this geographical redundancy we can ensure that your services stay online even if it comes to the highly unlikely case that one data center suffers from an admittedly highly unlikely outage.
In 2017 the Contabo data center Nuremberg has been awarded by an expert jury of independent data center experts from Germany with the German Data Center Award 2017, the “Deutsche Rechenzentrumspreis”. In 2018 the Contabo Data center in Munich has also been awarded with the German Data Center Award. This means: Both EU-located Contabo data centers are award-winning.
