Ensuring the Internet extension of your business is up and running 24 hours a day, 7 days a week (24x7) is our top priority.
Our server network is located in a 68,000 sq ft of top–tier, SSAE 16 and SAS 70 Type II audited Internet Data Center facility in Dallas, TX. Housed in the prestigious Irving Building, this multi-million dollar facility is seismically designed to withstand most natural disasters - including an earthquake of 8.3 in magnitude. The spacious facility features raised floors, state-of-the-art fiber optics and a redundant self contained cooling system.
Chakaroff Inc.'s network architecture provides fast, clean, redundant connectivity to the global Internet. Our bandwidth is comprised of multiple OC12, "one hop" connections to Level 3, UUNET, and Global Crossing. We have two additional standby feeds from Qwest and Cogent. Utilizing the IDC's core network architecture and advanced routing technologies, (mt) Media Temple is able to route data to and from businesses in a manner that minimizes the use of congested public exchanges and private peering points. We provide high transmission speeds, lower instances of data packet loss, and greater quality of service to multiple carriers. We uniquely route data traffic using the shortest paths possible - providing absolute network availability at all times to Internet users worldwide.
The IDC's building is equipped with three 1,000-ton & two 500-ton centrifugal chillers with four 1,500-ton cooling towers cells, and two 250-ton heat pumps - one 1,000-ton chiller can cool the entire building on a 90-degree day. The building is equipped with a “Honeywell” W940 fire monitoring and reporting system located on the Plaza level. Of the 238,000 gallons of water in the cooling towers, 168,000 gallons can be used for the fire pumps.
Access to the IDC is controlled around-the-clock by armed security personnel. Entry to the underground floors can only occur through secure gates for which security personnel require authorized escorted visitations only. After initial security clearance, a series of other strict security checks are given before final key-card entry to the actual IDC. The facility is monitored 24x7 by humans and sensors using numerous security cameras and playback monitors located throughout the center.
The fire suppression system is a multi-zoned, dry pipe, pre-action fire suppression system. It is activated via under-floor and overhead smoke detectors. When two or more zones have been activated, the pipes fill with water. Two or more of the sprinkler head caps must then be melted prior to water discursion. Once caps have been melted, water will only be sprayed in the impacted areas. The system is monitored 24x7 by onsite personnel.
