Platform - Infrastructure

All of your applications and data are hosted in a state-of-the-art SOC 2 certified data center. Securing your data is our priority!

Infrastructure

Decision Ready hosts its applications in state-of-the-art SSAE-16 SOC 2 Type II compliant data centers – one is located in Irvine, CA the other is in Denver, CO. This primary facility in Irvine boasts fully redundant power with diesel generators for backup, diverse paths and providers for Internet access, and multi-tiered reliable security services. The Irvine Facility provides clients with industry leading physical environment control features and increased capacity and scalability to meet their growth needs.

 

Physical Security

The site is designed with comprehensive access and security policies for protection of infrastructure and systems. These policies and procedures, optimized and certified with SAS 70 Type II Compliance, provide our customers with complete peace of mind in knowing their mission critical IT environment is secured. Key features of the security system include:
     -   Onsite Security Personnel 24x7x365
     -   Onsite 24x7x365 Network Operations Center, which monitors all external and internal security
     -   Closed circuit television security system throughout the data center
     -   Combination proximity card and photo identification system required to gain access to facility
    

 

Cooling Infrastructure

The data center has deployed a flexible and redundant HVAC design that supports the cooling requirements necessary for a truly high density IT platform. The data center uses DataAire HVAC (High Volume Air Conditioning) equipment to support the cooling load requirements. The air is circulated under 18" raised flooring and perforated tiles, using a hot aisle / cold aisle containment method for optimum efficiency. The HVAC system maintains optimum temperature (68/F +/-2/F) and humidity levels. The air is filtered continuously for contaminants, providing additional protection to equipment, and reducing the amount of resources needed for maintenance of overheated equipment, hardware replacement, and equipment cleaning.

 

Power Infrastructure

The data centers offers a premier power system designed to provide continuous, redundant, and protected power to our clients. Built to N+1 redundancy, proven solid and reliable power architecture is deployed in our data centers. The components of this implementation protect against such power anomalies and events as brownouts, blockouts and surges or spikes in power

Features and functions of our power infrastructure include:

Dual Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS): Through our dual UPS System, clean, consistent power is delivered. The UPS system is comprised of rectifiers, inverters, and batteries and is designed to maintain constant power to all equipment in the data center, regardless of power source

Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS): The automatic transfer switch (ATS) senses any significant interruption of power from the Utility Source. When an interruption is detected, the ATS immediately activates the onsite generator, feeding power to the UPS. A surplus supply of diesel fuel is stored onsite to fuel the generator for an extended period if necessary, additionally fueling contracts with local fuel companies ensure that the power needs of the entire data center will be served without interruption.

Load Testing: The data centers perform routine testing of the system every month to ensure full functionality.

 

Fire Protection

Ensuring that the facility is protected from fire is vital to the security of your business. Fire protection is a three-pronged approach: fire prevention, fire detection, and fire suppression

Fire Prevention: Part of the design of the data centers, specific limitations on amp usage and BTU output in each cabinet, cage and rack reduces the risk of electrical fires in the data center. We also control the flow of cooled air with the use of ventilated floor tiles to ensure consistent temperatures throughout the data center. Prohibitions on cardboard and other flammable materials are strictly enforced

Fire Detection: The data center utilizes the industry leading Very Early Smoke Detection Alarm (VESDA) system for the detection of smoke and fire. VESDA Aspirating smoke detection technology offers the earliest possible warning of a potential fire VESDA works by continually drawing air into the system's pipe network via a highly efficient aspirator. A sample of the air is then passed through a dual stage filtering system. From the filter, the sample goes to a calibration detection chamber laser light source. When smoke is detected, it communicates this information to a fire alarm control panel via a software management system of the Network Operations Center (NOC).

Load Testing: The data centers perform routine testing of the system every month to ensure full functionality.
