Advanced Datacenter : :

Our servers are maintained in a state of the art datacenter facility, which offers complete
redundancy in power, HVAC, fire suppression, network connectivity, and security. With over 35,000 sq ft of raised floor and 15,000 sq ft of static free tile. The datacenter facility sits atop multiple power grids driven by TXU electric, with PowerWare UPS battery backup power and dual power generators onsite. The HVAC systems are a combination of glycol, chilled water, and condenser units by Data Aire to provide redundancy in cooling coupled with 8 managed backbone providers. Twelve more third party backbone providers are available in the
building via cross connect. Fire suppression includes a pre-action dry pipe system including VESDA (Very Early Smoke Detection Apparatus)
with over 600 smoke detectors.

The datacenter features keycard locks on all paths
to sensitive areas, as well as motion-sensitive closed-circuit cameras throughout the premises.
All visitors to the datacenter must check in and out of the facility at the front desk with a government
issued photo ID.

The datacenter network architecture utilizes the Enterprise routing and switching engines from Juniper and Cisco. Juniper M20 routers as border routers, Cisco 6500 series switches in the distribution layer, Cisco 6500 and 5500 switches in the aggregation layers, and Cisco 3500 and 2900 series switches at the customer layer.

The network is fully meshed and redundant with 8 backbone providers. The current network consists of UUNet (GigE), Sprint (GigE), Level 3 (GigE), Global Crossing (GigE), Verio (GigE), Time Warner (GigE), Allegiance Telecom (2 x GigE), and AboveNet (2 x GigE).
