Boston Massachusetts Datacenter
A multi-million dollar Class A Data Center located in Boston, MA. The Datacenter employs multiple security measures starting at the main entrance where a guard booth is manned 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
In addition to the checkpoint at the main entrance, additional security personnel patrol the Datacenter Campus on a scheduled basis. Police and Fire stations are located within 1 mile of the campus ensuring rapid response to security concerns and other emergency situations. We are also in a no fly zone for aircraft and overhead traffic.
Data Center Security
Datacenter access is physically isolated from everyone but level three technicians. Public access is strictly forbidden. The datacenter is completely locked down at all times.
The facility is under video surveillance and monitored 24x7x365 by the Network Operations Center. Furthermore, all equipment is housed in locked cabinets to provide the highest level of security for our servers, firewalls, network gear and most importantly, your websites.
The Datacenter has thirteen Liebert industrial-grade air-cooling units. Each with their own independent (glycol) feeds providing 300 tons of cooling and moisture control.
Elevated flooring allows cool air to be dynamically directed wherever needed rather than relying on fixed ductwork. 22 foot ceilings allows natural convention to carry heat up and away from equipment where it can partially dissipate before requiring cooling.
Power & Generators
The Datacenter facility sits at the intersection of two separate metropolitan power grids drawer from two distinct cities each supplying 13,800 volt service.
In the extremely rare event that both municipalities lose power concurrently, the facility is backed up locally by dual Katolite 1500 kilowatt generators. Both the primary and backup power supplies are buffered through a pair of United Power 18000 amp hour Uninterruptible Power Supplies.
Working with our data center partner, Hosted Solutions, we strive to achieve 100% Network Uptime. The network consists of multiple Tier-1 bandwidth providers connected in a fully redundant architecture running on state-of-the-art networking equipment.
With (2) OC-12’s, (2) OC-3’s, and (1) Gigabit Ethernet upstream connections, the datacenter has access to nearly 3Gb/s of Internet capacity.
