DRACOON also focuses on sustainability with its partners: The software company from Regensburg therefore cooperates with noris network AG, which is specialized in the operation of highly secure and modern data centers. Among other things, it covers 100% of its power requirements with renewable energies.
DRACOON supplies all components required for a secure data exchange. The GDPR-compliant data exchange solution offers numerous features in consideration of maximum data security, which guarantees convenient processing and provision of data. Thanks to the client-side encryption DRACOON customers benefit from the highest encryption standard. This means that nobody except authorized users have access to stored company data, not even the provider himself. The award-winning solution "Made and Hosted in Germany" often serves via API as data storage for many other systems used in a company. As a secure storage location, DRACOON thus guarantees innovative and resource-saving data storage.
The company also attaches great importance to sustainability and environmental protection internally: all technical equipment is reused as often as possible, documents are processed, stored and passed on exclusively in digital form. Similarly, external communication takes place predominantly in digital form. This conserves the valuable resource "paper", and also eliminates a large proportion of the costs of shipping, postage and courier services. The Digital Workplace DRACOON also enables customers of the software company to work paperless. All information that would otherwise be stored in folders can be digitally stored in DRACOON in a highly secure manner, while the high security of the solution is also guaranteed during data transfer to the outside world.
But DRACOON also focuses on sustainability when choosing its technology partners. noris network AG operates innovative data centers with several locations in Nuremberg, Munich and Hof. Topics such as efficient energy and raw material consumption, waste reduction and selective risk avoidance also play a major role there. This is confirmed, for example, by the ISO14001 certificate, because all these points are also part of the excellent environmental management system. The office and data center locations have been certified accordingly since the end of 2017. Even then, noris network AG positioned itself as a sustainable company with the aim of continuously improving its environmental performance. At the same time, an independent environmental management system was established and the company's environmental policy was introduced.
"In our data centers, air conditioning is provided by KyotoCooling®. This process allows indirect free air cooling for more than 90% of the year without the use of mechanical compressors with their high energy consumption. In addition, we cover 100% of our power requirements in our data center from renewable energies," explains Michael Stapfer, Key Account Manager at noris network AG. "In this way we also support DRACOON GmbH in meeting the requirements and targets in the area of Green IT".
These arguments also convinced the IT service provider from Regensburg. "In our eyes it is also the task of companies to actively take precautions to protect the environment. This starts in-house and continues with the partners we work with," emphasizes Marc Schieder, one of DRACOON's managing directors, "With our solution, which gives back data sovereignty to companies and people, we want to make the world a little better. By cooperating with partners who rely on resource-saving energy, we can do this even more sustainably".
