One of the focal points of the GERMAN DATACENTER ASSOCIATION e.V. is to cooperate with existing organizations and associations - a common approach, of course, simplifies the achievement of goals. Furthermore, it is our special concern to formulate and coordinate German interests in Europe and to reach joint solutions with European partners - we present and establish Germany as an interesting and attractive location.
The Dutch Data Center Association (DDA) unites leading data centers in the Netherlands in a common mission: the strengthening of economic growth and the profiling of the data center sector to government, media and society. The DDA closely collaborates with Digital Gateway to Europe, which promotes the Netherlands as international data hub.
The Arbeitskreis "Sicherheit für Rechenzentren" (workgroup für data center security) is a nationwide consortium of high-level business enterprises, government agencies and organizations that facilitate the exchange of experience, professional information and development of data center security issues. The working group deals equally with all aspects of physical security and IT security.
We are currently in cooperation talks with associations and organisations in Finland, Norway, Ireland, Denmark and Switzerland.
