Power Facilities

Power System Metro Data Center
Here are some of our key POWER attributes:
  • Fully Redundant (N+2) Active / Active Power Sources
    • American Electric Power is our electric power provider
    • Engineered and supported from two Sub-Stations, for redundancy
    • Electrical wiring is supplied by two unique and diverse routes
    • We surpass most Data Centers in providing this service capability
  • Dual Transformers, Dual Switch Gear and Dual 625 KVA-UPS Systems are all autonomous in supplying (N+1) power into the Data Center
  • Dual Transient Voltage Surge Suppressors or (TVSS). The purpose of a TVSS is to eliminate damage to data processing equipment and other critical equipment by limiting transient (surge) voltages and currents (surges) on electrical circuits, including lighting strikes, elevators, heating, air conditioning, refrigeration or other inductive loads.
  • Two Megawatt Diesel power generation with fuel live capabilities, supplies full backup power to one or both legs of power using autonomous and redundant transfer switch gear.
  • Fire suppression systems, include FM200 clean agent and dry pipe pre-action

Cooling Facilities

Cooling System Metro Data Center
Here are some of our key COOLING attributes:
  • Glycol pumping stations, and dry coolers are all (N+1)
  • Liebert Control Systems – Environmentally monitored and managed 24x7x365 with automated controls throughout the power and cooling infrastructure.
  • State of the Art “Cold Row” containment systems by Rittal; providing maximized cooling per cabinet. This also raises overall site efficiency.

Security

State of the art Security System Metro Data Center
Here are some of our key SECURITY attributes:
  • High Tech Honeywell – “Security Systems”, including integrated video surveillance, full hand scan biometrics, interior and exterior Infra-red cameras. Our security system components provide (N+1) security system features for full redundancy
  • Physical security access into facilities and Data Center using mufti-factor authentication methods
  • Cabinet doors are secured using “Medeco” highly secured gaming locking systems uniquely keyed per customer.

    Quality Infrastructure

    Our goal is to provide the highest quality Infrastructure Services available in Central Ohio. If you are concerned about redundancy and site stability, we have a story to tell you.
    We recently completed an extensive site review with the expertise of Technology Site Planners. This comprehensive review ensures that our Data Center is in pristine operating condition and conforms to all “High Tier” standards. We have established an infrastructure that will support your organization’s needs with up to 100% uptime capabilities.

Physical Security

Metro Data Center, LLC has identified physical security at the forefront of our site considerations. During the process of reviewing the facility for usage as a colocation facility and the Technology DEC, several considerations were identified. These considerations include but are not limited to safety for our clients, safety of our infrastructure, and in the case of an event; we must have court acceptable logging substantial enough to prove access within the site.

Design of the new security system was performed by an industry leading security group working in conjunction with our infrastructure experts at Metro Data Center. For implementation of the security system, we again used the same industry leading security firm for the entire system as described below. Below are a few highlights of the newly built security system.

  • Access System

    The physical security access system implemented at the Metro Data Center site includes the following components.

    • 24/7/365 access to the Data Center and TechDEC spaces
    • System is maintained and supported 24/7 by Metro Data Center staff and includes vendor support for all components.
    • System is manufactured by industry leading security firm Honeywell, implemented and supported by local security specialist firm.
    • Physical Access System is secured within non-customer accessible area within the Metro Data Center facility.
    • Dedicated hard wired security access system protected by multiple entry point requirements for access.
    • Log files are kept on and offsite in an encrypted manner for a defined length of time.
    • Biometric (State of the art full palm readers) access to high security areas within the facility.
    • Two factor authenticated access for all areas within the facility.
    • Photo ID system for visual badge confirmation while in the Space.
    • Data Center Racks are equipped with customer specific physical keys directly provided from manufacturer.
    • Some data center tenants will choose and have the opportunity for biometric access to their server cabinets.
  • Closed Circuit TV System

    Closed Circuit Television is the designation generally accepted for all closed camera surveillance systems. The CCTV system implemented at MDC includes the following components.
