Power & UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply)

AC Power circuits are pulled to customer’s space typically priced and offered in 20 and 30 amp increments. Power is delivered to the customer in a “blipless” manner; backed up by UPS and generator. Facility is designed for 175 watts per sq. ft.

Bethlehem facility maintains seven (8) LIEBERT Power Distribution Units with three (3) circuit panels each. Panels have 40 breaker positions. All power circuits are individual runs back to the PDU (Power Distribution Units). No shared power circuits.

The three separate UPS systems include:

  • System A has 3 – 150KVA inverters and battery packs which run in a N+1 configuration
  • System B has 3 – 150KVA inverters and battery packs which run in a N+1 configuration
  • System C has 1 – 625KVA inverter and battery packs, which is a wet-cell system that is network monitored

Generators

  • Data Center Room A is supported by a 1,000KVA (1 Megawatt) Onan Cummins Turbo-Diesel, 1,700-gallon doubled steel walled base tank providing 40 hours continuous run under current load.
  • Data Center Room B is supported by a bi-fuel Genset system in a modular design that allows for paralleling five (5) – 600kw generators in a N+1 fashion for a total available load of 2.4 megawatts and has a 1,500-gallon tank and a direct natural gas feed.
  • Each generator has capacity to run while being refueled and is refilled as needed. Generators are run-tested weekly for an hour at no load and quarterly at full load.
  • Automatic Transfer Systems monitor incoming power and will cut over to generator if there is a plus or minus 8% change in voltage for incoming commercial power.

HVAC

HVAC is critical in the design of the colocation facility; safe conditions are regulated with respect to temperature and humidity. Facility is monitored to keep temperatures averaging 74 degrees F (+/- 2deg) and humidity levels at 44% (+/- 5%).

  • Raised panel flooring system and drop ceiling for efficient air handling
    • Data Center Room A: 18″ raised floor with 24″ panels
    • Data Center Room B: 24″ raised floor with 24″ panels
  • Bethlehem facilities are cooled via eight (8) LIEBERT HVAC units (two fully segregated areas)
  • All HVAC units run in an N+1 configuration; N= the need of cooling, +1 = one more to cover a failed unit
  • All units are double compressor units and can run at half capacity, regardless of N+1
  • Water detection system (Liebert Leak Detection) below the floor in data center

Fire Suppression

The Bethlehem Data Center uses FM-200, a non-toxic, environmentally friendly “clean-agent” (heptaflouropropane) waterless fire suppressant. Tanks are fitted with fast release valves designed to allow the complete distribution of the FM-200 gas within 10 seconds. The FM-200 utilizes a grid work of smoke / heat sensors both in the ceiling and below the raised floor. A comprehensive control system monitors the sensors and controls a multi-stage backup dry-pipe, pre-action sprinkler system. Fire extinguishers are in place next to each door within the data center.

Network

Multiple fiber providers available with diverse entrances into the Bethlehem Data Center with connections to major switching centers in Philadelphia, PA, New York, NY, and Newark, NJ. Utilizes geographically diverse carriers and connections for the SONET architecture that provides network connectivity throughout the national data backbone.

Data Center Colocation Security Access

24-hour unescorted access to its colocation facilities for authorized individuals only.

Security measures include:

  • 24 x 7 onsite personnel
  • Card-reader access system
  • Biometric identity access system
  • Video surveillance and capture to DVR
  • Electronic verification by personnel
  • Individual cabinet combination locks

Monitoring

  • Utilizes a suite of monitoring tools and methods to provide proactive notification of server or service affecting events. These methods include automated messaging sent from management/monitoring systems that notify personnel directly without any intervention that a service is down or impaired.
  • Proactive monitoring for changes in the environment outside of normal operating conditions prevents incidents from occurring that may lead to a service outage or impairment for a user organization.
  • Data center facility environmental conditions are continuously monitored by Data Technical Assurance Center personnel including cooling systems and power environmental alerts directly on TAC consoles, through the enunciators, through inspecting measurements on critical equipment inside the data center, and by audible alarms.
  • Options for monitoring systems include SNMP based metrics for system 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.
  • Data TAC (Data Technical Assistance Center) is staffed 24 x 7 x 365 to monitor, respond to, and escalate alarms, as well as to provide client notification per established requirements.
