Data Center and Colocation Facilities

Power

  • Rack capacity up to 23 kilowatts—far beyond the 1 kilowatt limit that most data centers offer.
  • Standalone Liebert FDC enclosures that integrate power distribution into the rack, providing multiple voltage and monitoring options and reduce the risk of multiple unit failures.
  • Redundant power buses, N+1 redundancy for UPS, generators and power distribution.
  • Libert NX UPS modules with softscale technology provide quick configurability to make on-the-fly change and growth easy.
  • AC power 100% generator backup.
  • 200 watts per square foot, including HVAC
  • 208V 1-phase, 208V 3-phase and 480V DC power available
  • Voltage output: 480V transformed to 120/208V
  • 1,200 amps expandable to 10,000 amps
  • True A/B power feeds
  • Grounding in accordance with NFPA 70
  • 48V DC batteries for UPS power backup
  • Diesel and natural gas generators with auto start and auto transfer with isolation bypass
  • 2,000 fuel tanks with minimum 24-hour run time capacity
  • 2-hour response for fuel recovery
  • Roof space for equipment mounting
  • Conduit and inner-duct


Security

  • Controlled check-point access with biometric scanning technology
  • 24×7 manned security via the Security Operations Center (SOC)
  • Remote camera monitoring 24×7, backed by digital recordings on file for 30 days
  • Secure access to equipment area 24×7
  • Security escort services 24×7 at site to non-secured equipment areas
  • Locking cabinets and/or cages
  • Full close circuit TV surveillance
  • BMS equipment monitoring system supported by USI’s 24×7 operations center


Floor Space

  • Top-quality, electrostatic dissipative raised floor tiles designed for 300 lbs. per square foot floor load
  • Meets all code specifications for safety and electrical grounding, per NFPA 70
  • DC power and communication cabling tray and pathways
  • Optical fiber guide conveyance system
  • Comprehensive and flexible cabling infrastructure


Cooling

  • Precision high density Liebert XD refrigerant-based cooling modules provide focused rack cooling, and remove the risk of total system failure—which can happen with chilled water methods.
  • Liebert DS room based cooling systems complement the XD modules, providing precise, reliable control of room temperature, humidity and airflow.
  • Temperature is maintained by 72° F dry bulb at ASHRAE 1%.
  • 30% to 60% non-condensing humidity control delivered through Liebert ATSs via infra-red humidifier.
  • Under-floor cooling provided by computer-room grade equipment
  • Cooling not less than 200 BTU/h per square foot with N+1 redundancy
  • Backed up by diesel and natural gas generators


Fire Protection

  • The VESDA very early warning Aspirating Smoke Detection system samples the air continuously to provide the earliest possible warning of an impending fire hazard. Multi-level warnings and a wide range of sensitivity that does not degrade or change over time ensures that even minute levels of smoke are detected before a fire has time to escalate.
  • Key team members are notified immediately of any alarms.
  • FM-200 waterless fire suppression systems are distributed throughout the facility. Upon activation they reach extinguishing levels in 10 seconds or less, dousing fires of all types and minimizing damages.
  • Under floor leak detection system


Interconnection Options

  • Multi-diverse fiber paths
  • N+1 redundancy for all network facilities
  • Multi-layer bit carrier options
  • Border gateway protocol BGP4
