Introducing LG CNS Services & Solutions 3

1

Nowadays, IT plays a vital role for businesses to compete and succeed. To make IT work, saving and managing your data safely is one of the prior things to consider.

LG CNS can safely protect your IT assets from preventable risks like man-made disasters as well as natural disasters that no one can foresee. For the service, LG CNS provides stable power supplies through a complete backup system as well as perfect temperature and humidity conditions.

We also think green. We have designed green data centers that will achieve a low-carbon future with environment-friendly features, such as the use of the solar power produced on its own site, the cooling technology using the outdoor air, the aerodynamic control of air flow in the computer room. Moreover, these Green IT facilities are monitored and managed through LG CNS’ Smart Green Solution (SGS).

Currently, LG CNS is running four data centers within Korea: Sang-am IT Center and Gasan Center in Seoul, Incheon Center, and Busan Global Cloud Center (hereafter Busan center). Also, outside of Korea, there are three other data centers in the U.S., Europe, and China.
