Generali Insurance Company, a top 10 player in the business on the local market, has chosen AVITECH for data center fit out and implementation of the security system on the three floors of its new headquarters in Charles de Gaulle Plaza building.
The Data Center was turnkey fit out, AVITECH integrating all the necessary systems in order to ensure the safe, efficient and uninterrupted operation of the beneficiary‘s voice and data communications.
In what concerns the racks that host the IT equipment, there was chosen a high performance architecture of Hot Aisle Containment System (HACS) type. This allows optimization of energy consumption and better control of ambient temperature in the operating environment. Cooling is provided by several air conditioning units. A dedicated humidification system maintains a predetermined level of humidity in the room. The electrical installation was designed on the principle of redundancy so as to enable constant power supply of the data center, no matter the situation.
In addition, there was installed a fire extinguishing system using ecologic gas, which has been integrated with the Aspiration Detection System, and with optical smoke sensors. Detection, extinguishing, access control and video monitoring systems are integrated.
