  • Large on-site NOC with 24/7 Engineers.
  • Real-time monitoring and alerts for all critical systems.
  • Customer level service and application monitoring.

Data Center Building Construction

image

Our data centers are built upon a unique pod design concept, making them functionally independent with distinct and redundant resources, and fully integrated through our revolutionary network architecture. You can have direct control over your system in any data center and full access to all of our back-end services—all fully automated and on demand.

Each data center facility features one or more pods, each built to the same specifications with best-in-class methodologies to support up to 5,000 servers. Leveraging this standardization across all geographic locations, we optimize key data center performance variables including: space, power, network, personnel, and internal infrastructure.

Cooling Systems

image

We have tremendous cooling infrastructure, with dual redundant chilled water supply loops and multiple Liebert air conditioning units pumping cold air into the pressurized raised floor of our data center

  • n+1 Liebert VACs w/n+1 supply loops and chillers.
  • Up to 300 tons of cooling capacity that runs on MCI’s chilled water systems.
  • Raised floor system for efficient distribution of cooling.

Fire Suppression Systems

image

Our state-of-the-art fire suppression has three levels of protection. The facility is designed and constructed to sustain a seismic event while maintaining business functions and boasts low latency through superior connections to Washington, D.C.’s robust fiber optic loops, 55MW of existing electrical capacity, 45 on-site generators with .5-million gallons of on-site fuel storage, and a carrier vault system supported by more than 50 miles of embedded, secure conduits.

  • Halon Fire Extinguishers.
  • VESDA laser smoke detection with dry pipe suppression.
  • Tightly defined preaction zones for localized fire extinguishing.
  • Monitored and maintained by both ServePath and MCI 24X7 on & off-site.

Fiber and Bandwidth Providers
