Choosing A Data Center
There are many reasons to choose one data center over another when it comes to housing and protecting your most valuable computing assets. Your business should enjoy the highest levels of security, redundancy, reliability and expert technical service. Your data center should be like a fortress, built of the toughest construction materials and serviced as needed 24/7/365 by experienced network engineers. It should be compliant with SAS-70 and PCI certifications and feature emergency lighting and back-up climate control. Luckily, our OnRamp Access data center excels at delivering on these accounts and more.
Our data center was built in 1991 under strict requirements, originally serving as an NEBS-compliant telephone central office. Two years later it was converted into the 15,000 square-foot, concrete tilt-walled data center our customers trust today. Our engineers have expertise all the way through the application layer. The Network Operations Center is standing by 24/7/365 to provide immediate hands-on support for every customer, under any circumstances. An on-duty engineer is there to help for day-to-day colocation needs, or during emergencies and disaster recovery.
The reliability of our data center services is another compelling reason for your business to choose us. We’re connected to the Internet through a telephone network with two unique fiber entrance facilities. Each is provided and maintained by a different facilities-based telephone company. We use GigE bandwidth connections and Tier-1 Internet backbones provided by TW Telecom and Qwest. They are carried across both fiber entrance facilities to ensure that service won’t be affected in the event of backbone failure or fiber/conduit cut.
If the power fails, a generator will come online in 10 seconds. To accommodate for that time lapse, battery-operated emergency lights activate. The OnRamp data center is also equipped with reliable air conditioning from N+2 HVAC units, and can continue to operate seamlessly if one unit goes down. These are just a handful of the many reasons to choose OnRamp for your data center needs.
