At the GERMAN DATACENTER ASSOCIATION, we promote the interests and special needs of data centre operators to policy makers, the media and society at large.

We represent our members – operators and owners of data centres of all sizes – on relevant committees on legislation, regulations, rules, standards and political issues. Our long-term aim is to improve the general conditions for data centre operation in Germany on a lasting basis.
