Failure security

All servers and applications are observed by netfiles GmbH and its partners 24/7 using redundantly designed monitoring systems. If a problem should occur with a component, it will be repaired immediately by a service team that is also available round-the-clock. All systems and components are designed redundantly. If some unforeseeable event causes a complete failure of the data center, the entire functionality can be taken over in a short time by a hot stand-by system in another data center.
