At LCL, we are proud of what we do and are happy to share our passion with you. Interested in visiting one of our data centers? No problem! We are happy to open our doors to schools, companies, hospitals and anyone who is curious about how a data center works.
What does a visit to the data center entail?
During a visit to one of our data centers, you will find out where and how the huge amount of data we create every day is securely stored and exchanged. We will give you a tour of our server rooms and show you how we make our data centers a safe and secure, well-monitored environment for the installation of infrastructure.
Brussels is the center of Europe and Belgium. With fast connections to world cities such as London, Paris and Amsterdam, it is not only a traffic hub; it is also an international data traffic/connectivity hub. You will find many important IT suppliers just a stone's throw from the data center.
Our five data centers are carrier-neutral: this means you choose yourself which telecom operator you connect to. You can choose to visit any of the following data centers:
1. LCL Brussels-North: our head office
2. LCL Brussels-West
3. LCL Wallonia One
Brussels is the center of Europe and Belgium. With fast connections to world cities such as London, Paris and Amsterdam, it is not only a traffic hub; it is also an international data traffic/connectivity hub.
Just like the other LCL data centers, the one in Aalst is also carrier-neutral. This means you choose yourself which telecom operator you connect to. If you come from West or East Flanders, this data center is ideally located to save you travelling time and distance. In addition, a Tier 3 data center is unique in this region.
There is also a data center available to you in Antwerp. The city is also an important Internet hub. The redundant data centre is equipped with renewed electrical installations, fire and leak detection, climate control and physical security.
The Atos data center in Huizingen is LCL's fourth location and the third around Brussels. Scale is important in the data center world because of the large investments involved and the continuous need to implement the latest technologies and techniques. LCL includes the data center in its portfolio under the name ‘LCL Brussels-South’.
Since June 2021, customers are able to use LCL's first Walloon data center. It is strategically located in Gembloux (province of Namur), the beating heart of the Walloon economy. LCL Wallonia One is state-of-the-art with a solar park on the site that supplies energy to the data center. The park comprises about 2,000 photovoltaic panels, with which about 1 MW of electricity can be generated.
