AEB’s data centers are an essential and reliable foundation for our cloud-based software offerings. A sophisticated supply, data backup, and protection concept ensures comprehensive security and availability. Learn more.
The AEB data centers are located in Germany.
AEB operates and manages the data centers itself.
The systems in the AEB Cloud offer high uptime rates.
The data centers are ISO 27001 certified.
All the systems in the AEB Cloud are designed with multiple redundancy and allow for an automatic failover that can cover even extended disruptions to individual components.
The two AEB data centers are supplied by two distinct, physically separated power lines. In addition, a diesel-based backup power system can maintain power for up to 24 hours without intervention in the event of an emergency. This emergency power supply can also be easily extended through refueling, guaranteeing an uninterrupted power supply.
The AEB systems can also withstand minor fluctuations thanks to double cross-connections of each rack and multiple UPS systems.
To secure customer data, AEB data centers provide (SAN-integrated disk-to-disk) backups on optimized disk systems with various restore options.
The data is regularly copied from the disk systems to tape libraries in encrypted form. The tapes are outsourced to a third location.
We protect ourselves against unauthorized access and malware with next-generation firewalls, various anti-malware solutions, and several penetration tests every year. In addition, AEB employees undergo regular training and are sensitized to data security issues.
Central logs record every access to and use of customer solutions and information assets, and these logs are stored in a central system to the extent allowed under the law.
Each application also has additional log data relevant to customer business processes. Customers can grant employees access to the logs – for troubleshooting, audits, etc.
Our data centers have two independent uninterruptible power supplies and a diesel generator as a backup power source. The diesel generator can provide power to both data centers for at least 24 hours without refueling. Regular tests check for any vulnerabilities in the energy supply.
AEB offers two cloud options:
“AEB Cloud” is a shared (multi-tenant) environment in which customer applications share common application servers and associated components. The separation by client ensures that each customer can see and access only their own environment and data. For more details, see the
