We have pioneered the concept of a Globally distributed Datacenter. Our Datacenter is a globally distributed collection of redundant server infrastructure which hosts all our Products and Services.
Salient features of our Datacenter
Our Datacenter consists of servers distributed across various Datacenters worldwide. Most of these datacenters have certain common qualifications described below -
The datacenters are connected to the internet through Gigabit ethernet connections from separate backbone providers, who each run fiber optic cables into the data center through separate entry points.
To guard against line failure or intrusion, the data center is staffed 24 hours a day. Movement throughout the facility is escorted at ALL times. There is 24x7 closed circuit monitoring of all areas and entrances. Between the cameras, access control, and the security team, the datacenter facilities are pretty secure.
The total incoming power is a multiple of what is required to run the datacenter. There is an ATS (Automatic Transfer switch) in place to automatically kick in a generator in case of a power failure. The datacenters are also equipped with redundant UPS systems to ensure clean power.
Redundant A/C systems, each running at a fraction of their capacity, keep the server rooms cool. The units are alternated so that each one is kept in optimal condition.
Advanced Smoke Detection & Fire Protection Systems
The datacenters are equipped with specialized fire detection and protection systems meant specifically for protecting servers as using ordinary water based systems would cause just as much damage as fire.
Scalability & Reliability
Our Datacenter consists of a complex mesh of global servers that interact with each other. The entire architecture is built upon common principles of High-Availability, Clustering and n+1 Architecture. This allows us to scale our solutions to match your exponential growth by simply adding infrastructure and linking it to this architecture. You are abstracted from worrying about variables such as scalability, uptime, network response etc
