Quadra Hosting's US Network Connectivity
Our US servers are housed inside a data center located in Dallas, Texas. The internal network architecture utilizes the Enterprise routing and switching engines. The network is fully meshed and redundant. Our current network consists of Internap, Level3, Time Warner, and AboveNet
The state of the art datacenter facility is located in Dallas. It offers complete redundancy in power, HVAC, fire suppression, network connectivity, and security.
With highly reliable automatic backup systems, we ensure constant, uninterrupted power to our servers:
- Diverse A & B power plants.
- UPS systems operate independently to provide true redundancy.
- Multiple diesel generators covering the entire facility remain on standby.
- Generators are tested bi-weekly and full load testing is conducted once per quarter.
- If commercial power fails, automatic transfer switches (ATS) immediately activate generators, monitor electric feeds and transfer stabilized loads to generators.
- The UPS systems keep equipment seamlessly powered, preventing resets while generators kick in.
- Plus, staff members regularly walk the facility for visual examination of equipment.
Our equipment and data are protected in an ideal environment:
- Cabinets are laid out for optimum airflow - hot and cold aisles separate exhaust and intake
- Solid cabling routed neatly overhead - easier for moving equipment
- Facility maintains an ambiant temperature of 70 degrees
- Industry-leading Liebert air units for under-floor cooling and humidity control
- Pre-action dry pipe fire suppression rated for telecommunication equipment/computer rooms
- Integrated smoke/heat detector system
- Roof wind rating of FMI-90
Beyond 24x7 on-site staff coverage, we use sophisticated security to protect your data. This includes biometrics technology to secure entrances and access:
- Biometric scanners
- Multiple layers of 24x7 security cameras, card readers and keypads
- Equipment area accessible only with cardkey and keypads
- Noncustomers enter equipment area by escort only
- All cabinets, cages and suites are locking, with security upgrades available
- Facilities monitored with 24-hour recording and 30-day video storage
The goal is to provide maximum redundancy in every facet of the datacenter environment to facilitate 100% uptime for the entire hosting infrastructure.
