YottaServers’ datacenter is located in the Midwest and boasts some of the most innovative and technologically advanced implements anywhere! The datacenter itself is located in a secure area with low cost and reliable municipal utilities with an excellent service record. The building was engineered to withstand all extreme weather conditions including tornadoes, electrical storms, water-related issues and even intentional attacks.
The building is two stories with the servers located on the lower sub terrain floor. The power systems throughout the building are N+1 with redundant standby generations, UPS/power conditioning, switchgear and distribution buses all the way to the racks.
In addition to the hardware implements of the datacenter, security is optimized in every facet. Security in the data center and NOC areas are monitored and tested extensively 24/7. Access control is layered with access available only to pre-authorized personnel. Security systems include video surveillance, card and biometric access control systems and proximity/motion sensors. Fire protection is provided through dual FM-200 gas and VESDA early smoke detections systems (primary/secondary).
