Colocation Services Summary
Secure facilities comprise the foundation for Enterprise Hosting’s colocation services and help ensure the continuous operation of your IT applications.

State-of-the-Art Colocation Features
Redundant Power Supply System
Redundant power protects your mission-critical environment against service interruptions. Enterprise Hosting’s unique hot sync parallel/redundant systems provide redundant power supply through Uninterruptible Power Systems (UPS) and backup generators. In the event of power failure, our on-site diesel generator system automatically generates power to both AC and DC systems, powering your network without interruption to service.
High Security Facility
Enterprise Hosting stores an authorized access list within a proprietary, secure database. When you or someone on the authorized list comes to the facility, Enterprise Hosting requests to see photo identification. If the name and photo I.D. matches the name and photo in our secure database, entrance is granted. Once inside the facility, Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras mounted above each cabinet row monitor all activity. There are card readers on every door within the facility, and unique card readers on the doors to the suites. Only Enterprise Hosting is allowed to open and lock equipment cabinets. Additionally, there are no customer names on the cabinets and no cabinet floorplans to associate cabinets with customers. Industry-wide, physical security is very rarely an issue. However, if it were to become an issue, Enterprise Hosting is prepared for it.
Customized Cabinet Sizes
Enterprise Hosting offers a selection of fractional cabinet sizes for your application housing. Enterprise Hosting’s standard cabinets are 84 inches high, 19 inches wide and 36 inches deep. The cabinets contain front and rear-locking perforated doors, and one 20-port, surge-protected power strip. In conjunction with your representatives, Enterprise Hosting will install and connect your customer equipment to electrical power circuits and telephony cabling. The cabinets can be connected to multiple communications carriers for optimal performance and redundancy.
High Capacity Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning (HVAC) System
Your equipment is monitored in a temperature-controlled environment. Enterprise Hosting’s Internet Data Center operates at an average temperature between 65 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit and an average relative humidity between 30 and 45 percent.
Fire Suppression System
When you choose Enterprise Hosting, your equipment is protected by a fire suppression system with a built-in early warning detection system. The Very Early Smoke Detection Apparatus (VESDA) system detects abnormal particulate matter in the air. A pre-activation fire detection system verifies a fire before activating the suppression system. Heat detectors above and below both the floor and ceiling are controlled in the NOC (Network Operations Center) and monitored offsite.
Raised Floors for Organized Cabling
Raised floors enable Enterprise Hosting to place power and cabling below the floor of the facility for optimal security. All power and CAT 5 data cabling is placed sub-floor in a horseshoe fashion (to eliminate interference between power and data cables). The raised floors and zoned cabling are designed to support 1250 lbs. point load.
“If everything is going right, your vendor should get you into operational mode and talk to you as little as possible. I shouldn’t be using a lot of the vendor’s engineering resources – if they do their jobs right, problems don’t occur. This is exactly what we experienced at Enterprise Hosting.”
