About Our Linux Data Center
Today's competitive e-business
marketplace requires that your business use the most
efficient and reliable hosting services. As one of
our clients, you will reap all the benefits of our
state-of-the-art data centre, while avoiding the expenses
and risks associated with trying to build and manage
this environment internally.
Through our data center, your company can have immediate
access to one of the most rigorously engineered IP
networks in the world, coupled with the reliability,
scalability, and security that your mission-critical
Web applications need for today and tomorrow.
- Our Server
- Dedicated Apache web server running on a
500Mhz intel, 512 RAM, 2 x 40 Gb Drives, optimised
to maximise performance.
- Red Hat Linux
- 2 independent OC-3 networks to independent ISPs
(This is fast!).
- Server located in Seattle USA.
Electrical and Power Systems
- All power in the IDC is passed through a fully redundant
Liebert 1000KVA Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS)
system with two 500KVA parallel UPS. The UPS system
feeds five Power Distribution Units (PDU), which feed
all network and systems, and critical office areas
in the facility. The Internet Data Center's Physical
Security consists of seven layers, to include 24/7/365
Security Staff at multiple internal posts, Access
Control Systems, Electronic Perimeter Intrusion System,
and Video Surveillance.
- All Data Centers use Liebert HVAC systems. The air
conditioning system is zoned into four self-contained
areas: (1) the Computer Room, (2) the UPS and Battery
Rooms, (3) the NOC and office/common spaces, and (4)
the Telecommunications Room. Each of these zones is
supported by 8 to 20-ton under-floor (e.g., the conditioned
air is forced and vented under the raised flooring)
Liebert Series 3000 Air Conditioners, and augmented
by a 40-ton Trane System located on the roof for supplemental
air forced through ducting above the ceiling. Current
total capacity is 268 tons.
Fire Suppression Systems
- A FIKE Fire Suppression System (Halon 1301) is the
primary system providing coverage for the UPS, Battery,
Telecommunications, and Computer Rooms.
A Pre-Action Sprinkler system is the secondary fire
suppression system for the Computer, Telco, and UPS/Battery
Rooms with a double interlocked, supervised, dry system
using a deluge valve controlled by an electric release
systems and pneumatic system pressure. The electric
detector system must actuate and a sprinkler must
fuse before water will enter the system. The office
areas are covered by a wet-pipe Sprinkler System.
All are tied into the building Fire Control Panel
for Central-Station monitoring.
Water Detection System
- A Raychem TraceTek Water Detect System is deployed
throughout the Computer, Telco, and UPS/Battery Rooms.
Raised Floors and Seismic Stabilization
- Located on the ground floor, the entire facility
employs an 18-inch DONN All-Steel and SolidFeel Raised
Floor Panel System with seismic stabilization throughout.
Floor panels are Severn Model 75, rated for a concentrated
load of 1250 lbs.
- The key to security is "security in depth".
The Physical Security Program consists of seven layers,
to include 24 x 7 x 365 Security Staff located at
multiple posts, Visitor/Escort Control procedures,
Access Control Systems, Electronic Perimeter Intrusion
System, and Video Surveillance.
