Data Center

Located in southern Denver the Centennial Airport, our premiere Tier III high-density data center sits awaiting your servers. This 87,000 sq. ft. carrier-neutral facility offers fully redundant power, cooling, and network connectivity which are all monitored by on-site NOC technicians 24x7x365. Preventative maintenance is completed regularly to assure most reliable operation.

Cooling

Unlike many of the facilities in the Denver area, our data center space is built for high-density deployments. This means that extra steps are required to maintain proper temperatures; the largest difference is that hot-aisle containment solutions are utilized to guarantee that air from the hot aisle is circulated back to CRAC units rather than into the cold-aisle.

- Cooling available at N+1 redundancy
- Redundant and energy-efficient ultrasonic humidification systems maintain precise humidity distribution
- Raised floor plenum provides cooling to server racks
- Hot aisle and cold aisle configuration
- Hot aisle containment used to increase efficiency and density
- Use of blanking panels, air dams and venting solutions used to prevent circulation of hot air to cold aisle

Network Connectivity

Designed for redundancy and performance, our Cisco network can handle your connectivity requirements.

- Native Dual Stack IPv4 / IPv6 connectivity
- Fully redundant A/B network drops available within each colocation rack
- Each colocation customer is segregated to it's own VLAN
- Upstream connections monitored by NOC 24x7x365 for latency and optimum performance
- Meshed BGP network with upstream connections to Level3, Abovenet/Zayo, and TW Telecom

Electrical Infrastructure

Clean, conditioned, reliable power is probably the single-most important aspect of a data center. DenverColo.net will accept nothing less! In addition, we utilize 208 volt power to supply all server colocation cabinets for maximum efficiency -- click HERE to read a white paper published by APC on the benefits of 208 volt power.

Data center electrical infrastructure features:
- Three seperate utility feeds with diverse paths back to the substation
- 3600KW of on-site generator capacity at N+1 redundancy; expandable to 6000KW
- Four separate UPS systems, each at N+1 redundancy
- UPS systems fed from diverse sources to prevent loss of critical power
- True A/B power connectivity available to every server cabinet

Physical Security

DenverColo.net data center's do not take physical security lightly. The facilities have completed SOC 2 Type II and SOC 3 audit reports to provide our customers with complete peace of mind in knowing that their mission-critical IT environment is secure. DenverColo.net also expands the data center security by employing our own data center access policies.

Physical access to all data center space and network "meet me" rooms are secured utilizing a combination of digital camera, proximity card, and biometric scanners. All visitors must be granted access to the facility by NOC personnel. After providing valid government-issued identification, access beyond the "man trap" is granted. To access the data center floor, both a proximity card and biometric hand scan is required.

Data center security also features:
- 24x7 on-site security and NOC staff (minimum of two staff members at all times)
- Alarm system with cameras on all perimeter points of the building
- Video surveillance monitor data center entrances, data center space, and all areas of critical infrastructure
- Multi-level access authorization utilizing man trap, biometric verification, and keycard access
- Regular, thorough walkthroughs of the entire facility to verify that there are no operational abnormalities present

Fire Protection

While we hope that fire suppression systems will never have to be used, all data center space is equipped with a state-of-the-art detection and suppression system that is monitored 24 hours per day.

All data center space includes multi-zoned above and below-floor detectors that are monitored both internally on-site and off-site with fire department dispatch.

A pre-action dry pipe fire suppression systems are used throughout the facility and designed to only fill with water in the event that two or more sensors are triggered in the same zone

After the suppression system is charged, the system only discharges in the area where the temperature would rise to trigger a sprinkler head

Testing and any preventative maintenance is completed annually to ensure reliable operation of the system.
