KISTERS North America is aware of the excessive rainfall and flash flooding throughout western region of Europe: Belgium, The Netherlands, Luxembourg, Switzerland, and western areas of Germany in recent days. Our thoughts and prayers are with our colleagues, their families, and their communities as they await information about missing or lost loved ones.
Management from KISTERS AG have affirmed that the ISO 27001 - certified Data Centre operations in Aachen, Germany and technical support services provided to worldwide users of KISTERS software and IT innovations remain available and reliable.
KISTERS North America will contribute its assistance if necessary.
Earlier this week, the European Flood Awareness System (EFAS) in addition to the Deutscher Wetterdienst (DWD), Germany’s federal meteorological service, issued “extreme” flood warnings to local authorities. The “extreme category” accounts of “danger to life,” explained Professor Hannah Cloke, a hydrologist and advisor to EFAS who spoke with the news outlet, Politico.
Hosted solutions in North America are unaffected since dedicated environments in commercial and private cloud environments have been established for optimal availability and performance. Technical support services to North American users remains available and reliable.
Our thoughts and prayers are with our colleagues, their families, and their communities during this difficult time.
