Aqua Ray's data centre construction site: between certifications and development

In 2019, Aqua Ray acquired the neighbouring premises of its IVY1 data centre in Ivry-sur-Seine. For several years, Aqua Ray had been planning to increase its capacity and improve the design of its IVY1 data-center. This acquisition therefore marks an important step in Aqua Ray's development with a new ambition: to build the first data centre with a Tier IV certified design in the Ile-de-France region.

This acquisition therefore marks an important step in Aqua Ray's development with a new ambition: to build the first data centre with a Tier IV certified design in the Ile-de-France region.

The construction of this new data centre, Aurora - IVY1, is based on two main axes: firstly, the in-depth renovation of our current data centre built in 2011 and, secondly, its extension which will triple its current capacity with a total of 56 bays for 200 KVA. On this project, Aqua Ray is directly in charge of the design and project management

Operational at the end of the summer of 2020, our Aurora - IVY1 data centre will offer both a colocation room that can be accessed autonomously by customers in compliance with ISO27001-certified security procedures, and another room, with even stronger access control, to accommodate infrastructures certified for hosting healthcare data (HDS).

The Aurora - IVY1 data center is designed to be the data center of the future, designed to be the data center of the future, designed to never break down. It will therefore be dressed with a futuristic façade and will be piloted upstairs by a NOC worthy of the best anticipation films.

Aqua Ray Facade Intentions

The members of the technical team will therefore have their NOC (Network Operation Center), where the workstations will be arranged in a circle facing the control screens. Raised with a technical floor, this space will be as good as the Space X LCC control centre at Cape Canaveral. The technical elements will serve as decoration by being visible and suspended acoustic tiles will cover the ceiling.
