Overview

top

The LG CNS Incheon Data Center is Korea's first building dedicated exclusively to data processing services and was designed to leverage state of the art construction and facilities to provide services at international standards. The center is earthquake proof, and is equipped with a complete backup system for power, UPS, communications, air, and disaster preparedness facilities to provide uninterrupted data processing services, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
As a state of the art data center that meets international standards, the Incheon Center satisfies all criteria for security for financial information net works and computing center facilities.

Safety

top

Earthquake facilities
  • Exclusive power supply for both main and reserve power‚ redundant backup power system–Earthquake resistant design: Up to 6.0 on the Richter scale
Floods (tsunamis, floods)
  • Located in an area with no history of natural disasters (including earthquakes‚ floods‚ lightning storms etc.)
  • As the site is 30cm higher than the surrounding area, natural drainage occurs during torrential rains
  • The first floor is 60cm higher thanthe surrounding area‚ making it safe from torrential rains
  • No pipes or water bearing facilities are located in the upper area of the machine room‚ and there is no risk of leakage (waterless ‘dry’ sprinklers are installed in the offices during normal operation)
