Security basics of hosting solutions

Data centers have experience dealing with a wide scope of security policies and practices and have specific operating procedures for the management of the facility.  Some of the security basics include:

1.  Climate Control – a data center’s performance depends on the right environmental climate.  The premium data centers have a continuous circulation of cool, perfectly conditioned air to provide the ideal environment for servers, routers and other equipment.

2.  Fire Detection and Suppression – confirm that preventative measures are the first line of defense against fires.  Air quality should be monitored by devices installed above and below the floor.

3.  Power Backup – electrical power is fed to a data center’s Uninterrupted Power System.  This provides clean power to all equipment in the rare event of a power failure.  For extended power outages, data centers can run on power generators for additional backup.

4.  Network Bandwidth – look for high speed Internet connectivity over a world-class TCP/IP network.
