Allentown, Pennsylvania – (The Hosting News) – September 26, 2006 – Managed web hosting company, INetU, has completed construction of its fourth and largest data center. Built adjacent to its Allentown headquarters, DC4, as with its three existing data centers, was designed and constructed with state-of-the-art technology, to make it one of the nation’s safest business hosting facilities.
The company recently topped the list of Most Reliable Hosters for May 2006, according to a monthly review of 50 of the world’s top Internet hosting companies conducted by Netcraft, an Internet services company based in Bath, England.
Dev Chanchani, President of Managed Hosting at INetU commented, ”This new data center, like our other three, is built to provide 100% uptime and the most reliable service available in the managed hosting market. It enables us to expand services to existing clients as well as address our growing client base.” Mr. Chanchani cites several factors critical to the new data center’s design:
Â· Geographically neutral location: Built in a strategically neutral location adjacent to its Allentown headquarters, the center is immediately accessible to INetU’s top-level support staff while remaining a comfortable driving distance from New York and Philadelphia. The data center maintains fully diversified multiple fiber optic Internet connections to geographically diverse tier-1 providers, ensuring reliable network performance and integrity.
Â· Top Level Security: DC4 is a restricted-access facility available only to authorized personnel through means of biometric access controls, 24/7 cctv monitoring, and motion sensors.
Â· Industry Leading Technology and Construction: The Data Center is equipped with FM-200 gas fire suppression, which allows for maximum fire protection in the unlikely event of smoke and/or fire, while safeguarding the server equipment from damage associated with other traditional fire suppression methods.
Â· Optimal hosting climate: INetU employs redundant CRAC (computer room air conditioner) units. Ceiling return units placed at key hot spots draw heat out of the room and recycle it through the air conditioners. Optimal room temperature is maintained between 68 and 72 degrees, and server rack temperatures are monitored to ensure uniform cooling. Vapor barrier walls and raised floor panels keep excess moisture out, and humidity is maintained at the ideal level.
Â· Uninterrupted Power: A professionally maintained 230kw diesel generator with load bank (for power load testing), and UPS systems are on standby to assure the data center is self-sufficient in case of an extended power outage. Power distribution units provide clean filtered power to all equipment. Generators and all power equipment are tested regularly to ensure proper functionality.
