Data Center - Michigan

EntirelyDigital's Michigan Data Centre is located in a secure, unmarked facility. The Michigan facility is a "class A" data centre with multiple connections to telco fibre rings, an advanced security system, a 24 hour Network Operation Centre, fire suppression system, uninterrupted power supply (UPS) and a high capacity generator.

Building Specs — Michigan Data Centre

  • SAS 70 Certified
  • All servers are in locked Cabinets
  • For additional passive cooling redundancy, The Michigan Data Center's ceiling is a full 20 feet high. This allows equipment to radiate heat upwards instead of outwards towards neighboring servers. Total heat rejection efficiency is higher.

Features — Michigan Data Centre

Network

  • Connections are assured through redundant fiber paths leading to multiple upstream carriers.
  • We peer locally with our carriers, here in Southeast Michigan, and use combined layer-1 ring redundancy and layer-3 BGP4 IP protection to provide the Michigan Data Center with unparalleled uptime.
  • EntirelyDigital uses only Cisco routers and switches throughout our facility and network.

 

State-of-the-Art Security

  • Biometric security enforced through an iris scanner offers one of the most accurate, non-invasive security measures to ensure only authorized people enter the facility
  • Guarded entrances have security cameras to scan and digitally record the interior and exterior of the facility 24 hours a day
  • Security cameras incorporate low-light technology to allow clear visibility at night

Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) systems and a high capacity generator

  • In the event of a power outage, three Liebert online double conversion uninterruptible power supplies (zero transfer time) power the Michigan Data Center while a diesel generator starts.
  • This setup provides disruption and distortion free electricity to our critical load.
  • An indoor fuel tank can supply independent run time for a minimum of two days and priority refueling contracts through multiple vendors guarantee a constant supply. We test the generator weekly.

Redundant Cooling System

  • We use redundant (n+1) Liebert Precision System/3 air conditioning units for cooling. These high capacity units are specificity constructed to cool a high density data center.
  • A complete duct infrastructure covers the entire facility and ensures equal distribution of cool air. Servers produce a dry (or sensible) heat requiring each unit to also monitor and maintain a suitable humidity level, necessary to minimize static electricity.
  • Each unit has redundant compressors and AC units that are computer controlled to maintain temperature and humidity in the facility.
  • For additional passive cooling redundancy, The Michigan Data Center's ceiling is a full 20 feet high. This allows equipment to radiate heat upwards instead of outwards towards neighboring servers. Total heat rejection efficiency is higher.

Fire Suppression System

  • Fire suppression capabilities are executed through FM-200 gas that extinguishes fire without water, to ensure no water damage to the IDC's equipment
  • The back-up sprinkler system is installed and operates as a pre-action system, keeping pressurized air in the pipes
  • The air is only replaced with water when the pipes reach a high temperature and the smoke detection system determines there is an active fire due to smoke.
