The facility is equipped
with a Raytheon fire suppression system, designed to
immediately extinguish fire and protect equipment and
personnel. The command center is controlled via automatic
doors to further secure and protect the equipment.
Finally, the NOC is located
in a secure, monitored, Class A building with a minimum
number of approved personnel allowed access to highly
sensitive areas and equipment. A detailed record of
employee and visitor entry is maintained at all times.
We keep spare servers
on-line of all CPU configurations. If a server were to
experience a hardware failure, we would turn a key, grab
the handle on the drive, pull it out, and insert it into
an identical standby CPU. We would then reboot the second
machine and the server would be up and running again in a
matter of minutes.
Swap Seagate Drives
The drives and drive bays
of all our servers are constructed from high-grade
aluminum, and rest in shock mounted drive cages, which
adds to the durability of the hardware. Our drives proudly
feature the lowest failure rate in the industry.
Web Serving Monitor
Our tools monitor the
Apache web server to ensure that it is up and serving
pages. Every two minutes, we send a test page to the http
daemon. If it does not respond, our script will reload the
daemon. After two attempts, a technician is
contacted to take the remedial steps needed to make sure
that servers are fully operational.
actively monitors all
commonly used ports to make sure that they are open, and
to verify that they are actually passing data. The script
does this by requesting data. If the port does not
respond, it is restarted by the monitoring tool.
To ensure the integrity of
our customers' web sites, we proactively monitor system
processes on each server. These monitoring programs are
designed to halt and report all intrusions to the system
and provide our customers with the peace of mind they need
to conduct secure business transactions from our servers.
All of our servers and our
network are monitored externally. In addition to the
internal scripts described above, we use off-network
servers to provide corrective action, notification and
coverage for maximum protection of service delivery. Using
these off-site machines gives us the ultimate guarantee
that we can provide the uptime and reliability promised to
daily backups of all servers- a daily incremental back up
and a weekly full backup. The full backups are placed onto
tapes and are stored for two weeks while the incremental
backups are stored onto disk and kept until the next full
backup is performed.

industrial-grade UPS systems. These act as back-up
batteries, maintaining uninterrupted power in case of
surges or power outages. With these backup systems in
place, we can keep our network up and running indefinitely
without relying on external power.
Hot Swap Power Supplies
Each server employs
dual-redundant hot swap power supplies. If a power supply
were to fail, the server would continue running with power
from the alternate supply. Meanwhile, alarms would alert a
technician, who would quickly restore redundancy. In the
meantime, servers and client sites would experience no

web servers are
equipped with a positive pressure filtered-air system.
Four large fans pull filtered air into each server's
protective case and the components within are cooled by
fans which circulate this purified air. This constant
introduction of clean air into the case creates a positive
pressure environment ensuring dust and particles remain
outside of the server.
