Power

Power is a major component of Data Center Colocation. Windstream has gone to great lengths to ensure that the power supplied is clean, consistent, and reliable. Our power distribution systems ensure that every power circuit delivered to a customer's cabinet is clean and isolated from other customer circuits (i.e. no shared power circuits). PDU (Power Distribution Units) act as "smart" circuit breaker panels, monitoring both input and output voltages and currents.

Commercial Power:
  • 2000 Amps at 480 Volts of incoming power from the utility company
Generator:
  • One (1) Caterpillar 1400kW backup generator
  • One (1) 1,000 gallon double wall steel fuel storage tank
  • Contracts with multiple fuel vendors
  • Generator tested weekly at no load and bi-weekly at full load
UPS (Uninterruptable Power Supply):
  • One (1) Liebert 200kVA UPS inverters and battery packs

HVAC

With 120 tons of cooling capacity currently installed and the ability to expand to 240 tons in the Phoenix Data Center, Windstream monitors the facility's environment to keep temperatures averaging 70 degrees F (+/- 2deg) and humidity levels at 44% (+/- 5%).

Fire Suppression / Smoke Detection

The facility is protected by a waterless "clean agent" FM200 fire suppression system located in 9 total tanks throughout the facility. FM200 is people safe and environmentally friendly. It is non-conductive, non-corrosive, and one of the most versatile clean agents available, leaving no residue behind to damage electronic equipment or to have to clean up. The system utilizes a grid work of photo / ion sensors.

Monitoring

Windstream utilizes a suite of monitoring tools and methods to provide proactive notification of server or service affecting outages. Options for monitoring include SNMP based metrics for server health (cpu utilization, drive space, memory usage), service or daemon status (service up / down), or standard TCP / IP protocol response (ping, http, https, smtp, ftp), as well as nonstandard application-dependant port response.
