the South Atlantic Web Server
Apache web server running on a 500Mhz intel, 512 RAM, 2 x 40
Gb Drives, optimised to maximise performance.
Red Hat Linux
2 independent OC-3 networks to independent ISPs (This is fast!).
Server located in Seattle USA.
Electrical and Power Systems
All power in the IDC is passed through a fully redundant Liebert
1000KVA Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) system with two 500KVA
parallel UPS. The UPS system feeds five Power Distribution Units
(PDU), which feed all network and systems, and critical office
areas in the facility. The Internet Data Center's Physical Security
consists of seven layers, to include 24/7/365 Security Staff at
multiple internal posts, Access Control Systems, Electronic Perimeter
Intrusion System, and Video Surveillance.
All Data Centers use Liebert HVAC systems. The air conditioning
system is zoned into four self-contained areas: (1) the Computer
Room, (2) the UPS and Battery Rooms, (3) the NOC and office/common
spaces, and (4) the Telecommunications Room. Each of these zones
is supported by 8 to 20-ton under-floor (e.g., the conditioned
air is forced and vented under the raised flooring) Liebert Series
3000 Air Conditioners, and augmented by a 40-ton Trane System
located on the roof for supplemental air forced through ducting
above the ceiling. Current total capacity is 268 tons.
Fire Suppression Systems
A FIKE Fire Suppression System (Halon 1301) is the primary system
providing coverage for the UPS, Battery, Telecommunications, and
A Pre-Action Sprinkler system is the secondary fire suppression
system for the Computer, Telco, and UPS/Battery Rooms with a double
interlocked, supervised, dry system using a deluge valve controlled
by an electric release systems and pneumatic system pressure.
The electric detector system must actuate and a sprinkler must
fuse before water will enter the system. The office areas are
covered by a wet-pipe Sprinkler System. All are tied into the
building Fire Control Panel for Central-Station monitoring.
Water Detection System
A Raychem TraceTek Water Detect System is deployed throughout
the Computer, Telco, and UPS/Battery Rooms.
Raised Floors and Seismic Stabilization
Located on the ground floor, the entire facility employs an
18-inch DONN All-Steel and SolidFeel Raised Floor Panel System
with seismic stabilization throughout. Floor panels are Severn
Model 75, rated for a concentrated load of 1250 lbs.
The key to security is "security in depth". The Physical
Security Program consists of seven layers, to include 24 x 7 x
365 Security Staff located at multiple posts, Visitor/Escort Control
procedures, Access Control Systems, Electronic Perimeter Intrusion
System, and Video Surveillance.
