Our data center is considered a top tier facility in terms of network connectivity and infrastructure design and is SAS70 Type II certified. We are headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri, U.S.A. St. Louis is a strategic central point in the United States that makes it an ideal location in which to distribute Internet data throughout the United States and around the world. Brainbench has ranked St. Louis no. 6 for IT IQ among all United States cities.
Our primary Data Center is located inside of an 18-floor, all steel frame, secure building owned by New York Stock Exchange listed public company Digital Realty Trust. It is one of the largest telecommunications facilities in the central region of the United States.
Our 22,000 square foot Data Center can accommodate large server farms and data center cages. We maintain direct multi-Gigabit bandwidth connections into four of the tier 1 international Internet backbone providers. Our scalable Multi-Gigabit Internet network currently serves over 10-billion hits per month. We currently host thousands of Internet web, mail and application servers, network routers, switches, firewalls and storage systems.
The building receives electricity from three separate power feeds on a spot network that provides for automatic failover capabilities. Our Data Center maintains level current and short term power backup through a complex UPS system, and protects against possible long-term power failures with two 1.5 megawatt diesel generators. Ideal temperature and humidity is accurately controlled with redundant cooling systems. Equipment is protected by a pre-action, dry pipe fire suppression system. A high level of security is maintained through a five level system that includes access codes, a security guard station, biometric hand scanners, electronic proximity readers and security cameras.
