Fully redundant power allows Houston and Bryan data centers to remain 100% operational during February 2021 winter storm

During any disaster, companies must be prepared with operational redundancy. The amount of backup power available is paramount to keeping systems online during the crisis.

When a utility failure occurs due to severe weather (like the sustained freezing weather of February 2021), equipment failure and power line damage can be devastating.

Data centers (like FIBERTOWN) who offer redundant power and fault-tolerant systems will be better equipped to avoid costly periods of downtime.

Cloud and blended internet keeps FIBERTOWN online

With Megaport connectivity, FIBERTOWN customers are closer to the cloud resources that are essential to business. Megaport provides protected, private access to cloud connectivity services such as Office 365, AWS and Google through a single port.

This optimizes cost and safety and reduces latency delays.

Megaport is a large-scale Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) utilizing 100 Gbps technology to deliver dedicated access to cloud services.

Using a dedicated, secure connection to the cloud, Megaport brings the cloud to the colocation so that your cloud services and colocation services can operate as one.

FIBERTOWN also uses a blended internet system with multiple carriers to keep customers online at all times. Blended internet is more cost-effective, flexible, and reliable than traditional or dedicated internet services.

Thoughtful infrastructure secures FIBERTOWN’s redundancy

The Houston data center is located along the main fiber route from Dallas to Houston, which provides close proximity and easy access to the fastest telecommunications networks.

FIBERTOWN HOUSTON also features diverse fiber entrance points in and around the building, designed to support a fully redundant and secure multi-homed network.

The Houston data center utilizes primary and secondary Point of Presence (PoP) rooms, delivering diverse pipelines of redundant connectivity to customer equipment.

This ensures every customer is always protected and business connectivity never goes down.

FIBERTOWN also provides point-to-point services via a dedicated pathway between its Houston data center and the Bryan/College Station data center.

Both facilities are concurrently maintainable and offer 100% uptime.

Another important factor is FIBERTOWN’s dedication to power with its HVAC cooling systems. The environment inside the data center can never change, so redundancy and concurrent maintainability must be in place for the critical systems delivering cooling.

If a component of the system goes down, the infrastructure ensures functionality even in the event of a component failure.

Utilizing FIBERTOWN data centers for critical business systems

FIBERTOWN offers fully redundant, secure and reliable data centers to keep your mission-critical business systems available 100% of the time.

As a colocation provider, the range of disaster recovery solutions is nearly unlimited. You can use FIBERTOWN as your primary & secondary sites, only secondary sites, hot or tape back-up, and for Highly Available (HA) fail-over.
