Tier-1 Premium Bandwidth
Providing the highest quality Internet connectivity and performance is our top priority. We have selected premium Tier-1 bandwidth providers, ensuring minimal latency and fast connections to all points of the global Internet. We are proud to feature direct connectivity with Cogent, Level3, Verizon, and Comcast. Our aggregate connectivity reaches an astounding 8,500+ networks just a single network away from our uplinks.
Our power systems feature extensive fault tolerance and resilience at every layer. From multiple uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) with redundant battery cabinets, to Liebert Precision and Eaton Power distribution units that handle final power transformation and distribution to racks, we ensure clean and consistent power to our data center equipment. Additionally, each facility has multiple emergency generators waiting on standby.
Environmental processing systems include redundant Liebert Precision 22 ton up flow air conditioning units. Temperature and humidity are precisely regulated year round to ensure optimal equipment reliability. Each unit contains independent compressors and cooling loops to further enhance fault tolerance and reliability. Air filtration systems actively remove foreign particles from circulation and cycle the entire data center air supply in a matter of minutes.
Data center access is strictly limited to technical staff. Specialized electronic security systems control access to the data center and are accompanied by a full complement of motion detecting security cameras which monitor the entire facility. Our data centers’ external walls are reinforced poured concrete and the building and grounds are patrolled regularly by an on-site security officer. In addition to an on-site security officer, our fully managed facilities have highly trained technicians on-site 24 hours a day, providing incredibly.
Our network is designed to accommodate clients demanding the highest quality performance, our network was built with a central focus on redundancy. Our redundancy is multi-tiered with N+1 internal device elements and entirely redundant chassis. This design allows any routing device to rapidly self-heal failures without interruptions to customer connectivity. All routing and switching equipment is state-of-the-art Cisco gear.
