Getting Inside Our Data Centers

Getting inside our data centers is not as easy as simply opening the door. There are many security and hygienic precautions in place to ensure that all precautions are taken. Firstly, in order to access our ca-ymc-1 and Sjc1 data centers, there is biometric and physical security for all access points. This means that in order to enter our data centers you need to pass a duel-factor authentication process. This ensures that only the right people have access to the physical infrastructure of your cloud.


A Security-First Approach

The highest standards of security do not end at the front door. Both our ca-ymc and Sjc1 data centers undergo yearly SOC Type 2 audits. They both feature in-depth network security, as they are SSAE-16 facilities and there is security staff on-site at all times. Moreover, HD surveillance video cameras watch the facilities 24/7/365 so that our users know that their cloud solutions are secure. For those looking for added security measures, it is possible to opt for caged spaces for your servers.

High-Density Power That's Also Environmentally Friendly

Is your business looking for high-density power and lightning-fast connectivity? MAN/WAN options range from speeds of 100 Mbps to 100 Gpbs. We also offer the best power circuits of 415v/60amp/3 phase power delivery with 35 usable kW. Sjc1 is outfitted with nested virtualizations, 40Gbit networking, and low latency, which works wonders for processing big data. Moreover, sustainability is a strong focus with 9MW high-density liquid-cooled facilities to ensure minimal data center water and a better IT footprint to fuel your cloud infrastructure.
