Our Data Center is a world-class facility, and the first of its kind in San Diego. Completed in March of 1998, our 2000 square-foot, 150 rack Data Center meets the high security and protection demands of any Internet presence. The SimpleNet Data Center has redundant systems for connectivity, electrical power, air conditioning and fire suppression to ensure that your Internet presence is always available.
The SimpleNet Data Center is monitored 24 hours per day, 7 days per week and 365 days per year. Our staff is committed and trained to provide you with continual, high-level network monitoring and load management of your connection. In addition, we offer engineering support for outage response, network performance analysis and network planning.
SimpleNet maintains connections to multiple upstream providers to provide redundancy and reliability for your connection to the Internet. These connections are multiple DS-3s (45Mb/s) with providers such as Sprint, Level3, MCI and XO Communications. SimpleNet optimizes the path your data takes so your customers don't have to wait. Network Operations Center (NOC)
SimpleNet's NOC is manned 24 hours, 7 days a week 365 days a year. This provides continual, high-level SNMP monitoring and management of customer connections. In addition, the SimpleNet NOC offers engineering support for outage response, network performance analysis and planning. Environmental Systems
The SimpleNet Data Center features a positive pressure, computer clean room with double filtration of fresh air before entering the center. In addition each air conditioner continuously filters the air within the room.
The Data Center offers up to 60 tons of redundant air conditioning. Each of the 6 air conditioning units handles 10 tons of cooling capacity and is fully independent from other units. This allows maintenance to be performed or a failure of a unit without affecting your Internet presence.
In order to provide optimum performance, the condensing units are located on the same floor as the Data Center and are vented outside through custom louvers designed specifically for SimpleNet. InergenT Fire Supression
InergenT is an environmentally green, three-dimensional fire suppression agent. InergenT provides Data Centers with a non-water based agent that:
* Is electrically nonconductive * Is safe for use in human occupied facilities * Does not damage sensitive electronic equipment * Has zero ozone depletion, zero global warming, and zero atmospheric lifetime
InergenT is a blend of three naturally occurring gases - Nitrogen, Argon, and Carbon Dioxide. stored in cylinders within the Data Center.
The InergenT system is like no other modern suppression system in use today. This system lowers the oxygen content of the room to a point sufficient to sustain human life, but insufficient to support combustion.
Because its not a chemical agent, the InergenT gas will not produce a heavy fog the way other extinguishing agents do, so escape routes remain visible. The InergenT gas discharges through specially designed nozzles fitted with discharge deflectors so that turbulence is minimized. SimpleNet Power Grid
The SimpleNet Data Center offers a robust, redundant power source. This redundancy starts with an APC Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) system that is made up of four 40 KVA units running in parallel for a total capacity of 160 KVA.
Like the air conditioning systems any one of these units can be taken off line for maintenance without effecting the protection of the room.
The UPS will carry the electrical load of the Data Center in the event of a power failure. Even under normal conditions each 20 amp circuit in the Data Center is UPS "conditioned" from the power sags and spikes that can occur with utility power. If any power failure last longer that a minute or so the SimpleNet 450 KW diesel generator will start up and supply the electrical load for as long as is necessary. This generator has a 240 gallon fuel tank that can be refueled from the street, indefinitely if the need arises.
