Augsburg, January 24, 2018 – Rosenberger Optical Solutions & Infrastructure (Rosenberger OSI), manufacturer of innovative cabling infrastructures based on fiber optics, is announcing that it has successfully completed a project to build a new data center for Deutsche Vermögensberatung AG (DVAG) in Frankfurt. The Augsburg based company acted as general contractor during the entire project for cabling planning as well as the installation of copper and optical fiber cables. It was also responsible for the delivery and installation of the racks, cooling aisles and row coolers. “The support from the experts from Rosenberger OSI was a great help to us, even during the planning phase, because thanks to the intensive and partly also cross-functional advice, we were able to surmount numerous hurdles proactively during the individual construction phases”, said Ronald Appel who is responsible for data center operation at the DVAG.
Since the DVAG was founded in 1975, the company has been on a course of growth. Due to the ongoing development, the company has had to lease additional external office space over the years, in addition to its headquarters. Furthermore the decision was made to move away from decentralized locations and set up a new corporate headquarters. However, in order to fulfill the requirements of the finance company, significant restructuring measures were needed. One huge activity within the construction project was the new data center, in which the entire IT department of the DVAG was to be housed.
