Power Availability

UPSs

Power is provided to us by DTE at 13,200 volts and is then stepped-down to 480 volts by our dual transformers. This gives our facility a total of nearly 3 megawatts of power.

Power Distribution

PDUs

The distribution of power inside our data rooms is handled by Liebert power distribution units. A mix of A, B and tertiary power options are available. These PDUs are fed by our dual Liebert UPS systems and can be dynamically allocated to provide N+0, N+1, or N+2 redundancy levels based on the customer's requirement.

Power Backup

Generator

We currently employ two primary and one redundant 750 kilowatt generators to provide continuous critical power in a N+1 configuration. Our generator system is fully wired to expand and when fully scaled up our facility will support a full 3 megawatts of N+1 critical power.

Cooling Availability

Glycol

Our cooling infrastructure is configured in an N+X format delivering a continuous 450 tons of availability via our Liebert dry coolers.

Cooling Distribution

HVACs

Data room cooling is setup for N+1 redundancy on a per-room basis. We use Liebert cooling exclusively in each data room with single unit tonnages from 22 to 30 tons.
