We monitor all power, HVAC, and fire-detection / suppression systems 24/7 using an automated application under the supervision of our local operations staff.
Component level failures are detected and trigger alarms in the local NOC, allowing our trained personnel to quickly respond and ensure systems are operational.

Customer Cabinets

Customer Cabinets
  • Available in two standard dimensions: 19″ and 23″.
  • Screened front and back allow for increased air circulation.
  • Side panel can be removed to allow for expansion.
  • Locks on both front and back.
  • Only two keys operate the cabinet locks. You keep one; the other is kept in a secure location.
  • Includes four shelves: three fixed and one sliding so we can configure to your specifications.

When you colocate with Localweb.com, you can rest assured that your application is housed not only in a secured data center, but also in a high-tech, locked cabinet, based exclusively with your requirements in mind. In addition, the cabinets are only accessible by your authorized team members and Localweb.com staff.

Data Center Floor

Data Center IDC
  • Raised floors provide easy, controlled access to power and network connections.
  • Cold air from our HVAC units flows through our sub-floor up through vents in the raised floor to maintain an internal temperature.
  • Fiber enters the facility in multiple locations. Redundant entry points for network connectivity and power.
  • Power and network cabling is installed to eliminate interference and other related problems.
  • Pre-laid CAT 5 cabling in the floor facilitates faster installs and easy accessibility by operations staff.

The Localweb.com data center floor contains many features that make services within our data center facility easily accessible. Our raised floors provide quick and easy access to the power and network cabling that lies below the raised floor. All cabling is organized and labeled for easy identification and use. This results in faster installations and increased service.

 High Capacity HVAC System

Data Center Cooling
  • Maintains average temperature between 65 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Keeps average relative humidity between 30 and 50 percent.
  • Uniformly cools the data center.
  • Works independently from the data center air conditioning unit.
  • Controlled by five Data Aire units.
  • Performance is constantly monitored by the NOC.
  • Delivers air conditioning through the floor, forcing it up through perforated tiles located in every other row.
  • In case of malfunction, one additional HVAC unit is readily available.

Ideal operating and environmental conditions make our data center facilities the place to colocate. Our high-capacity heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system maintains temperature and relative humidity levels to ensure your equipment stays up and running.

Power Generators

Data Center Power
  • Ready to supply power within seven seconds of public service outage.
  • Generates power to both AC and DC systems, powering your network without interrupting service.
  • 1500 KVA Cummins Synergy Diesel generators.
  • Operates for 24 hours on a single tank of diesel fuel.
  • Contract with local fuel company to refill tanks within two hours of request.
  • Power checked daily.

Our onsite diesel-powered generators are ready and waiting to protect your applications at the first sign of a power interruption. Our 750 kW-2000 kW diesel generators can run for 24 hours on a single tank of fuel. In the event of power disruption, the ATS immediately powers the generator and within seven seconds transfers power to the UPS for continuous charging.

Always Available Power Supplies

Data Center Power - Uninteruptable Power Supply
  • Feeds two 600 amp panels that in turn feed 100 amp panels located at the head of every row of cabinets.
  • Twin 500 KVA Powerware UPS systems (both of which are hot-synced).
  • Filters the power feed, compensating for surges, high-voltage spikes, switching transients, sags, electrical line noise, frequency variations and other conditions that prevents the proper operation of your equipment.

Uninterrupted Power Supplies (UPS), the first line of defense during a power interruption, help protect all your mission-critical applications. The UPS provides 110V/208V AC power to every customer cabinet. The UPSs receive power from multiple power grids to ensure fail-over. The UPS powers the data center facility in the transition to generated power.

Automatic Transfer Switch

Switch
  • After prolonged power outage, the Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS) automatically switches the Data Network Facility back to city power.
  • 120V AC or 48V DC.
  • When a power interruption occurs, and chances are it will, the ATS automatically switches the power from the primary source to an alternate supply. In the event of an emergency, the ATS immediately powers the generator and within seven seconds transfers power to the UPS for continuous charging.

Data Center/Power

Data Center Power - Battery Backup DC Power:

  • Two rectifiers convert AC power to DC power, offering you the most usable power possible based on your requirements.

600 amp Panel:

  • Receives power directly from the UPS.
  • Feeds 100 amp panels.
  • Offers the ultimate in effective power management.

100 amp Panel:

Currently, Localweb.com provides uninterrupted AC and DC circuits to your equipment cabinets. Future data center facilities will offer A/B circuits in both AC and DC power.

Fire Detection/Prevention System

Data Center - Fire Detection
  • Two rectifiers convert ACpower to DC power, offering you the most usable power possible based on your requirements.
  • Utilizes a pre-action fire suppression system that holds water outside of the equipment area until an actual fire is verified.
  • “Dry-pipe” systems ensure that if a sprinkler head is accidentally damaged, water will not drain into the equipment area, thus damaging equipment.
  • Heat and smoke sensors (controlled by the NOC) are located in the floor and ceiling.
  • Fire conditions are detected in all equipment room spaces.
  • Fire suppression system can be activated only when multiple inputs confirm the existence of a fire on the premises.

Localweb.com’s redundant, state-of-the-art fire detection and suppression systems help recognize and minimize the ever-present threat of fire, guaranteeing the protection of your equipment.

VESDA (very early smoke detection apparatus) detects abnormal air particulates potentially caused by equipment overheating, giving our staff time to investigate the situation before it becomes a problem.
