Data CenterPhireFast leases an array of dedicated servers at Colo4 (Dallas, Texas.) From our gigabit uplinks to our daily backup system, our custom configuration is maintained with reliability and FAST performance in mind.
The facility boasts high levels of security, including:
- 24x7x365 on-site personnel
- Bio-metric access
- Physical ID check
- Full CCTV surveillance backed by digital recording on file for 90 days
- Multiple layers of security & authentication; including card key, PIN, & biometric required for facility entrance
Data Center facts:
- Carrier-neutral, SAS 70 Type II audited facility
- Fully redundant power & cooling
- Fully staffed 24x7x365
- 30 inch raised floors
- Redundant HVAC
- Wind roof rating: FM-90
- 11.1 MW of utility power
The data center's average temperature of 70-72 degrees Fahrenheit with 45 percent humidity is achieved through the use of 86 Airflow rooftop mounted compressed gas units with extra sensors to assure early detection of any failure.
The data center receives primary power feeds from two separate substations which feed into the facility through separate underground routes. Each redundant UPS room contains 6 UPS systems (N+1) which filter out aberrations to supply clean continuous power to the customer cabinets, and infrastructure equipment. This UPS is connected to two two-megawatt Cummins Diesel Generators that will activate within eight seconds of power failure. Twenty four thousand gallons of fuel reside on-site to provide enough fuel to run all six generators at 100 percent capacity for 48 hours. While no condition exists in which all generators would operate under such conditions, a reference of scale would be to consider that operation of all six generators simultaneously would produce enough excess power to feed the entire local electrical grid.
An advanced fire suppression system is also in place, containing a pre-action dry pipe sprinkler system, early warning smoke, particle and heat detectors above and below the floors. Once triggered, the thermal fuse in each sprinkler head must reach between 120 and 190 degrees to disperse water. In addition, FM-200 extinguishers are located throughout the data center to attack incipient fire outbreaks prior to sprinkler system activation.
