Data Center


Our hardware is located on the West Coast in the Portland Network Access Point aka Pittock Internet Exchange, the largest fiber-optic exchange point in Oregon. This is the only fully carrier-neutral data center in Oregon with the largest network footprint of any provider in Oregon. The Pittock is a Class A building with generator backup, through-floor air conditioning, keycard locks and biometric scanning, video monitoring, redundant UPS battery backup and generator backup.


Connectivity


OC-192 redundant fiber optic connections link our data center to the Internet backbone and provide gobs of bandwidth and network capacity for maximum reliability and scalability.


Power


Electricity in the data center is conditioned and filtered by multiple redundant UPS (uninterruptible power supply) systems with dual Grid Feeds and six Primaries to city of Portland utility power substations and on-site generation, which provides power during electrical outages. If needed, the generator can supply electrical power to the entire data center.


Cooling


Multiple 15-20 ton, fully redundant HVAC environmental cooling systems with humidity control ensure that the data center is always operating at a temperature for optimum server performance. Raised floors allow for efficient cooling distribution via the Central N+1 Plant.
