OUR FACILITIES

Power
ProgressiveHost.com's server power is backed by two parallel-redundant 300KVA Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS system) and a 1.5 Megawatt turbocharged diesel generator with 12 hours of diesel fuel on-site. All of the racks and cages are serviced by one or more 20 amp, 120 volt AC circuits. This UPS has been installed to constantly monitor and regulate the quality of power from the wall so it constantly receives the clean power it was designed for. The UPS system provides immunity to energy spikes and surges experienced by the public sector. This ensures that there will be no interruptions in mission critical services. It has redundant capacity and allows maintenance to be performed on the system with no risk of power outage. Backup and redundant generators guarantee an alternate power source, providing indefinite hours of additional uptime in the event of a utility or system failure. The generator is tested on a weekly basis. In an event of a power outage, the power generator will start within 45 seconds at full operating capacity. Fuel can be added to the generator to keep the network up and running indefinitely. All in all, the powerful diesel generator has enough power to supply an entire building electricity at full capacity.

Server Facilities
Our data center is housed in a poured concrete sealed underground room, making it resistant to natural disasters and FM radio waves. We operate a Liebert Heating Ventilation Cooling system to produce the ideal environmental conditions for the servers. The servers are maintained at 65 degrees and relative humidity is maintained at 45% WE constantly monitor locally and remotely our electrical, mechanical, security and automation system to ensure that potential problems will be discovered quickly and addressed before there is any service interruptions. But even if there are, the pre-action dry-pipe fire suppression system protects the entire data center from fire while still eliminating the possibility of a false alarm. In addition, we created a strong fire suppression system. Our system use a dry chemical gas which is emitted by jets on the ceiling and beneath the floor. It operates by lowering the level of oxygen to extinguish the threat of fires.
