PageDesk facilities are equipped to support your system's Internet protocol (IP) connectivity and are directly connected
to Qwest's 10 Gigabit-per-second (OC192) and for redundancy, also connected to Equinix (OC48 and OC192) coast-to-coast backbone network.
With Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) systems and emergency backup
diesel generators, our electrical distribution system is designed
to power your systems, even during a blackout.
UPS systems prevent power spikes, surges
and brownouts while redundant backup diesel generators provide
additional fuel to keep the data center powered up in the
event that public utility fails. The entire electrical system
has built-in redundancy to guarantee continuous operation.
The overall system is N+1 redundant, including each component
within the parallel electrical systems.
IBX center is completely fitted with redundancy for precision
HVAC, power and fire detection/suppression systems, etc.
To provide optimum conditions for equipment
operation and minimize downtime due to equipment failure,
the HVAC system provides appropriate airflow, temperature
and humidity. Redundancy features provide additional protection
for customer operations. Air-cooled package chillers arranged
in N+1 redundancy configuration and backed up by generator
supply is adopted to provide round-the-clock chilled water
supply to the precision air conditioner units throughout the
Fire Detection and Suppressions:
Multi-zoned, dry pipe, water-based fire
suppression system with sensory mechanisms (sniffers) to sample
air and provide alarms prior to pressurization. Dual alarm
(heat and/or smoke) activation necessary for water pressurization
of system. Water only enters the fire suppression system in
the event of two cross-zone alarms, and will only disperse
in the event of a broken or melted sprinkler-head. Any water
discharge will be sprinkler-head specific, which will limit
the potential for damage caused by over-spray.
Built above sea-level with no basements,
tightly sealed conduits, moisture barriers on exterior walls,
and dedicated pump rooms; drainage/evacuation systems; moisture
Location-specific seismic compliance.
Structural systems meet or exceed seismic design requirements
of local building codes for lateral seismic design forces.
In addition, equipment and nonstructural components, including
cabinets, are anchored and braced in accordance with the requirements
of the 1997 Uniform Building Code.
meet our customer’s strategic growth plans and their need
to respond to fast-changing traffic demands, the patented IBX
cabling infrastructure allows almost infinitely scalable and
flexibly configured interconnections. The data distribution
system also effectively minimizes interference problems and
maintains an orderly cable distribution structure. It permits
rapid provisioning of bandwidth from a large choice of participating
providers. Equinix IBX cross connects allow IBX customers to
directly connect to any other IBX customer within the center.
This cabling infrastructure forms a high-performance backbone
for customers, with multiple redundant core switches and powerful
routers – a scalable architecture that can rapidly meet
increasing customer demands.
Internet operations require the highest-level security features,
and Equinix IBX centers deliver multi-level physical security.
All areas of the center are monitored and recorded using CCTV,
and all access points are controlled. Every IBX center is
staffed with 24-hour security officers to augment physical
security features, providing financial grade protection of
your mission-critical Internet operations. Visitors are screened
upon entry to verify their identity, and in shared situations,
are escorted to their appropriate locations. Access history
is recorded for audit by customers, as needed.
