Infrastructure and Data Centers
Our state-of-the-art data centers are located in the United States in Iowa and Connecticut where the networks have been engineered for the high-availability demands of today’s active websites. The custom-built servers are connected to the internet through multiple redundant connections, ensuring fast data delivery and uninterrupted connectivity. You can always expect fast, reliable access to your website.
Network and Data Center Security
Our networks are engineered for speed and dependability. The data centers incorporate the latest technologies in IDS (Intrusion Detection System) to monitor and protect against malicious attacks. In addition, the servers are protected behind internal firewalls and monitoring software.
The data centers use key card access points to physically secure access to the server racks.
The data centers are monitored 24/7 by highly qualified network administrators. The HTTP port is monitored while Ping tests are conducted every 5 minutes to verify that the servers are active. In the event that a port is unreachable, an email is sent to every member of the technical staff. Additionally, the engineers are provided with real-time status, notification and forecasting of network events.
Electrical and UPS
In the event of a power outage, APC Power Systems automatically transfer power to one of our KOHLER diesel generators. With full weather enclosures and 900 gallon gas tanks (with additional diesel quickly available through contracted vendors) they are packed with enough power to take on a long outage. All data center systems are generator backed.
The data centers utilize HVAC systems from APC, Liebert, and Trane to keep its critical infrastructures at an optimal temperature between 65°F and 68°F, and an ambient relative humidity level between 45% and 55% at all times.
The data centers use the tested and trusted Kidde FM200 – Kidde Clean Agent systems discharge a dry agent in less than 10 seconds, leaving no harmful residue in the data centers. It’s the preferred fire suppression system for critical electronics and computer environments.
The whole system is monitored by the ARIEST Intelligent Control Unit – a compact, full-featured intelligent control unit that manages fire response events from detection and alarm to suppression system release. The ARIES provides pre-planned, sequential system response or immediate system actuation depending on the requirements of the application. The ARIES seamlessly expands up to a 32 node peer-to-peer network for large system installations.
