ABOUT US

At the SWISS DATA CENTER ASSOCIATION, we promote the interests and special needs of data center operators to policy makers, the media and society

We represent our members and partners on relevant committees on legislation, regulations, rules, standards and political issues. We seek to improve the way the sector is perceived by society and the political class through sector-specific events and active public relations.

We also provide a platform for high-level networking within the sector, allowing members to share professional information on market and technological trends. We wish to play an active role in developing standards and rules related to data centre design and initiate and carry out research projects on data centres.

The SDCA's declared goal is also to make Switzerland a more attracitve location for investment, improve the general conditions for operating data centres on a permanent basis, boost growth in the sector and enhance the way business, society and the political class perceive the sector.
