When it comes to data center security, RACK59 goes to extreme lengths to make sure our customer’s data and equipment are secure at all times.
To ensure this happens, we have a fence around the entire perimeter of the facility with internal gate control, proximity card access points, biometric access and security cameras throughout. Access to the data center floor is restricted to approved personnel only and RACK59 staff escorts all customers to their rack.
As part of our SSAE SOC 2, Type 2 certification, we keep security camera recordings and facility access information of every person that comes to the facility.
RACK59’s power is the most robust power of any data center in Oklahoma and rivals enterprise data centers like Google, Facebook and Microsoft.
Our power is a true 2N configuration that starts with our dedicated, on-site 40MW substation that is fed from diverse power generating sources. From the substation, two underground feeds supply our central mechanical building, where the generators are located.
Each generator has a dedicated Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS) and can facilitate the entire load of RACK59. RACK59 provides our customers with A&B power from separate UPS’s that are connected to both utility and generator power. Our generators are each equipped with a 1,000 gallon belly tank and can pull from an additional reserve tank holding 10,000 gallons of diesel.
We monitor absolutely everything in our data center.
Our ES2 monitoring system is constantly pinging our equipment and sends notifications of issues and potential issues 24/7/365.
Environmental monitoring includes maintaining the temperature of the data center between 70℉ and 74℉ and the humidity between 40% and 45% relative humidity.
In addition, we have over 100 monitoring points including the UPSes, network switches, generators, chillers, CRAC units, and anything else we can put a sensor on.
