  Fabasoft Cloud Guarantees Data Storage at the Most Secure Location in

The cloud set in stone: Cloud locations offer freedom of choice and the
assurance of knowing the physical location of where your data in the cloud is
stored. At the longstanding heart of the Swiss National Defense, for example.

LINZ, & ATTINGHAUSEN -- March 6, 2013

The modern cloud solution has a solid feel to it. With the worldwide unique
concept of cloud locations Fabasoft guarantees its customers the security of
knowing where the data storage takes place. The new cloud location Switzerland
guarantees that data can remain 100% within the country.

Fabasoft’s Folio Cloud offers customers efficiently structured business
applications for targeted collaboration with business partners via the
internet. This means high agility and speed in the implementation of business
processes across company and country borders.

Conversely, the more extensive the possibilities, the more important
familiarity becomes. Fabasoft is based in the “steel city” of Linz and is
already well known, with Fabasoft eGov-Suite installations in federal
departments and administrative bodies. This proximity to Switzerland has now
taken on a physical dimension with the concept of cloud locations.

Helmut Fallmann, Member of the Fabasoft AG Managing Board: “The concept of
cloud locations is unique. We offer our customers freedom of choice and the
assurance of knowing where their cloud data is stored. With the new cloud
location in the Swiss alps we have achieved a further milestone for more
security in the cloud.”

“Natural wonder meets Swiss engineering prowess.”

Michael Imfeld, Vice President of Sales/Marketing at Deltalis, who built and
operate the new main data center for the Fabasoft cloud location Switzerland,
emphasizes the unique combination of “natural good luck” and the most modern
computing: “Because of cooling needs many data centers are located in faraway
cold regions. However, the 1000 meters of granite above and cold groundwater
enable a highly energy- and CO2-efficient facility in the middle of
Switzerland. Just 1-2 data milliseconds from Zurich, Zug or Luzern – and less
than an hour away by car.”

It isn’t by chance that the command center of the Swiss National Defence was,
for a long time, hidden in this mountain near Attinghausen in Canton Uri. Only
recently, all theoretically possible disaster and terror scenarios were run
through for highly sensitive data storage. The conclusion, according to
Michael Imfeld: “It is the most secure data center in Switzerland. Full stop.”
The worst case down time per year is 5 minutes and 16 seconds, almost twice as
good as what the strictest legal regulations prescribe.

Alongside security, Michael Imfeld attaches great importance to ensuring that
the facility is “anything but a damp bunker”: “Dryness, light, real office
feeling… like a multi-story company head office, just inside a mountain rather
than in the countryside or in an exposed site in the city.”
