Our primary data center in California is the premier data center available. Located on the largest Sonet rings, our fiber-rich, carrier-neutral data center has an unmatched infrastructure of power and network redundancy. If you’re outgrowing your current computing setup and considering Alpha Actual’s Concierge Cloud Service our data center is where your entire computing infrastructure can reside in safety and security.
Our data center is one of the largest and most capable facilities ever built in California. It maintains the highest industry standards for security and compliance. And unlike many data centers, it’s done — that is, everything is built and in place to support the center at maximum capacity and load. Many data centers add generators, switches, etc. only when the need arises, not us. The problem with that system is that capital limitations and cost-cutting can get in the way of the original facility plans. You don’t have to worry about any of that. If the facility were filled tomorrow, we’d be ready to handle it.
The 100,000 square foot facility is located within a central hub for nine independent OC192 fiber loops including AT&T, Level 3, and Cox. There are also 14 carriers with fiber running into the building. This allows us to connect Clients directly to the heart of the Internet, consistently delivering the quality of service required by the most performance-sensitive applications. We give you the flexibility to access multiple carriers or route all your traffic through a single preferred provider. With so much capacity at our disposal, you never have to worry about us bumping your traffic to make room for other clients.
Another added benefit of our facility is that most of the equipment and infrastructure is new. From transfer switches to routers, you can rest assured that your network and power are running through the best equipment available. All of our key equipment is actively maintained and supported by ongoing maintenance contracts. Our data center not only powers industry-acclaimed content delivery networks, but also hosts major points of presence for two of the most robust Tier 1 network backbones available: Level 3 and Global Crossing.
The pace of today’s business world requires your infrastructure to be constantly available and absolutely reliable. The first step is building a strong foundation.
DATA CENTER OVERVIEW
Our data center is one of the most remarkable and reliable facilities of its kind in the world. The facility’s redundancy capabilities and security reflect an overwhelming thoroughness of design. Some of our most unique features (such as onsite storage water tanks to provide backup to the cooling system) are rarely seen in other data centers.
One benefit of our location is that the data center is purposefully built on the only solid granite foundation in the region. The immediate vicinity around our data center is part of the section of Anaheim that is entirely granite and not located near any of the major faults. In addition, the entire facility was refitted with seismic bracing inside and out. Even the racks and cages are braced. Specifically, they are braced in a six-way configuration that is tied to the slab. This allows the racks to move with the building without falling over. The net result: a building built to Zone 4 specifications that just may be the safest place in Orange County.
The data center is located on top of the largest Sonet ring in Orange County, providing direct OC 192 access to the Internet. Couple this with a facility that has power zoning allowing for 160 watts per square foot and wholesale level pricing and you have an unbeatable combination for your mission-critical applications.
Another somewhat unique aspect of this data center is the fire suppression capabilities. Many data centers use water for fire suppression. But of course, water damages equipment. Our facility is completely equipped with FM-200 clean agent fire suppression. We even have FM-200 canisters strategically placed throughout the facility for hand use. If you are not familiar with FM-200, it is completely safe to use on equipment.
Our facility also is equipped with VESDA (Very Early Smoke Detection Alarm). This state-of-the-art system samples particles in the air, looking for smoke. It will easily detect any smoke or fire event long before a person would. This helps isolate and stop any issue before it has the chance to escalate to an emergency.
