Star of Bosphorus Data Center

NGN, with its Star of Bosphorus Data Center, offers new generation solutions beyond the standards to its customers.

Star of Bosphorus Data Center provides a unique facility structure for corporate customers who have prioritized reliability and uninterrupted working time; it is Turkey's most advanced data center with its experienced team and international certification.

Star of Bosphorus Data Center is the first Uptime Institute Tier III Design & resort in Turkey certified "operator-independent" commercial data center in Turkey, and it carries out the operation with 16 MW total power and about 5,000 m2 in the white space for over 2,000 standard cabinets.

We are pleased to offer our customers the highest degree of physical protected server / hardware hosting facility designed to reduce the risk of earthquakes. We provide the level of protection with the architecture of the building, the overall design of the data center infrastructure and the location of the facility.

The data center has a scalable design with four Data Center Modules (DCM). Each Data Center Module has its own infrastructure with power, cooling, fire prevention and physical security systems. Our facility has an office space for our customers who want to position their IT staff close to their systems. Telecommunication operators have the opportunity to use the MMR ”meet-me room“ areas for reliable data connection.

The physical security of our customers' IT equipment is one of our priorities. We know the value of customized controls as well as planned work to meet the needs of businesses with complex IT business processes. For this reason, the data center-connected facilities and data halls are physically positioned separately, and double-factor authentication and biometric controls are applied to manage access to facilities in the data center.

Designed to respond to the ever-increasing IT and network requirements of organizations with Digital Transformation, Star of Bosphorus brings a whole new approach to the understanding of data centers:

Uninterrupted service under all conditions, high security

Flexible service capacity thanks to scalable design
