USA Data Center is located in Denver Colorado
and Core Infrastructure
We maintain a fully redundant, enterprise class network, end to end.
Our network is powered by a pair of redundant Juniper M5 routers and Cisco 6500
series switches. All of our edge and core equipment is interconnected in a full
network mesh to provide maximum redundancy and salability. Internally, our network
operates at 2Gb/sec.
Detection / Network Security
Our entire network is protected by a pair of redundant, inline TopLayer IPS
5500-1000 units. The TopLayer IPS 5500 series provide protection against malicious
content through advanced IPS technology, against undesired access through stateful
firewall filtering, and against rate-based attacks through DDoS mitigation.
Moreover, the TopLayer IPS 5500s are the only intrusion system protection to
ever receive a coveted double NSS approved award in a single test.
Transit / Connectivity
We have fully burstable 1Gb/sec connections to TimeWarner Telecom and Level3.
Additionally,Qwest and MCI/Verzion Business are both available.
All critical network infrastructure is monitored on 60 second intervals, both
internally and externally to our network. Any potential issues with our network
infrastructure are immediately escalated to company management.
data center is the most recent addition to our team and houses a portion of
our USA based dedicated services and also our virtual windows plans.
All of our servers are housed
at our own data center facility in downtown Denver. At our data center facility,
we have over 4,000 square feet of raised floor and another 2,500 square feet
of office space to support our day to day business operations and on-site staff.
Located in Denver's central business district, the building we occupy has power
feeds from multiple substations. Electrical service is connected to our Mitsubishi
375KVA UPS, which delivers conditioned power to the data center. In the event
of a utility power failure, our diesel generator will immediate start up and
being carrying the entire data center load. Building life safety systems are
backed up by a separate generator.
Cooling and humidity is controlled by 7 air handling units featuring N+1 redundancy.
The HVAC units keep the operating environment in the data center at 70 degrees
within 45% humidity with variation of no more than 4 degrees to temperature
and 4% humidity. To ensure that optimal cooling and air circulation is available
at all times, air flow studies are conducted and an analysis with infrared heat
sensing cameras is performed on a regular basis. We also have local and remote
environmental monitoring systems in place.
Our data center facility is located in a building that has 24x7 on site security.
After business hours, all individuals entering or exiting the building are required
to present building credentials and sign in with onsite security staff. Upon
doing so, they are only granted elevator access to the floor they need access
to. Additionally, we have our own security system which consists of access control
systems within our office suite and remotely monitored video surveillance.
Detection and Suppression
Fire detection within the data center is provided by an early detection alarm
system monitored both within our office suite and by the building's 24x7 security
staff.. The data center has detectors installed both above and below the raised
flooring. The fire suppression system is a pre-action, dry pipe which would
discharge water only from the appropriate locations when the heat in the data
center increases enough to trigger a fire sprinkler head. The discharge of a
sprinkler would signal the emergency power-off switch, which would simultaneously
turn off the commercial electrical power to the data center and switch to UPS
