San Diego Datacenter

Facilities

We are a datacenter neutral provider enabling us to align ourselves easily with the best performing networks. Our equipment is located at American Internet Services - Fiber Alley Campus (FADC) in San Diego; the largest provider in the area.

This facility is SAS 70 Type II compliant and offers N+1 or better redundancy on all data center systems. The facilities are staffed 24x7x365 and have redundant AC power, cooling, and diesel generator systems; each is able to sustain major system or electrical outages without service interruption.

Network Connectivity

The data center offers direct carrier-neutral access to many of the world's leading carriers and networks. These providers include AT&T, Global Crossing, Level 3, Savvis, Sprint, Verizon, XO & peering via Any2 Exchange & Cenic. This includes multiple on-site fiber from AT&T, Cogent, Cox, Level 3, Telepacific, Time Warner, TW Telecom and XO.

Staffing

The datacenter is staffed 24x7x365 with on-site services including remote hands, equipment replacement and spare equipment.

Power

The data center is equipped with A/B AC power systems and an AC UPS power plant for maximum reliability. DC power is provided by multiple N+1 emergency diesel generators with a minimum of 24-hour runtime fuel capacity on-site and multiple fuel providers with 4 hour response time or better.

Cooling

The data center features multiple data-grade HVAC systems with N+1 redundancy in a raised floor configuration. The use of hot row / cold row cooling methodologies keeps air flow optimal. All cabinets are required to use blanking plates for maximum efficiency.

Fire Suppression

The data center utilizes a FM-200 dry-pipe, pre-action double interlock fire suppression system with zone specific discharge. In the event of a fire, air is removed from the room to quietly suppress the fire with minimal collateral damage to other cabinets.

Physical Security

The data center has a 24x7x365 on-site security staff that screens all visitors by CCTV; only authorized personnel are allowed to enter the building. All areas are monitored with a digital CCTV system and footage is stored for 6 months. A biometric hand scanner inside the man trap ensures the highest-level of security prior to entering the server room. Access within the building is restricted using key cards. All equipment is registered and tagged upon arrival and can only be removed by authorized personnel.
