Geographically centered in the United States, we are located away from the coasts and the threat of hurricanes. We are positioned outside of high risk earthquake zones, and based on National Weather Service, data Kansas City is not on the list of the top twenty tornado-prone cities.
Separate power grids, dedicated wiring, a+b UPS protection, and on-demand diesel generators with automatic transfer between power sources ensures superior redundancy across facilities.
We employ security patrols, keycard access, biometric hand and fingerprint identification, and 3rd-party alarm monitoring to ensure the safety of our facilities. All data center activity is recorded and video footage is archived for 90 days.
