  • FM-200 and ECARO-25 gas-based agents saturate the room, coating oxygen molecules in the air to prevent/extinguish a fire

Network Security and Monitoring

  • Network Operations Center (NOC) is staffed 24x7x365 by operations personnel and network engineers who monitor all systems for alerts and provide immediate response

  • Infrastructure components such as power, temperature and humidity are monitored 24x7x365

  • Network infrastructure components such as routing, switching and bandwidth are monitored 24x7x365 with certified network engineers available to respond to problems anytime day or night

Data Center Building Infrastructure

  • Purpose built to be a data center with 36” raised floors

  • Interior wall plan is designed to provide additional barriers and a buffer zone to further protect premise equipment housed inside the facility

  • All electrical and data communications circuits are provisioned through dedicated and secured underground conduit from two separate entrances

  • Roof rating to withstand an F3 tornado and winds of 150 miles per hour

  • Facilities are not located within any identified flood plains, probably fault lines or risk for wildfires
