What We Do to Ensure Our Data Center Physical Security
All of our facilities are guarded by professional security guards around the clock. When you choose Colocation America, it means you have 24/7/365 on-site security guards at every entrance.
Each location is equipped with video surveillance cameras at every vital area, inside and outside the data center. There is no way that anyone can enter without being recorded on camera.
At Colocation America, our facilities are always open to our customers. If you have rack space with us, feel free to come visit your servers. Any visitors who come to one of our data centers will be required to show their identification, which will be logged in the system with a time stamp.
When a visitor is granted access to the data center, they will pass through the data center entrance, which will be locked with electronic access control systems. All of the cabinets and cages in all of our data centers are also secured and locked, so your data is always kept private.
Each access point requires a code-based electronic card to enter, which means that every visitor requires an employee to escort them into the data center. All visitors will be supervised by an employee for the entire time they are in the data center.
All employees at Colocation America are subject to extensive background checks, so you can rest assured that we only have the most qualified personnel at our data centers.
Here at Colocation America, we guarantee our customers a 100 percent uptime. We make sure that all our data centers meet the N+1 redundancy of a tier three data center. That means we have backup generators, backup batteries, and backup cooling towers to ensure our 100 percent uptime guarantee. Our uninterruptible power supply (UPS) system means that all of our security systems will remain operational, despite any issues with the power supply.
