Our data center on the West Coast – in its third iteration.
This data center has a complete set of alarms covering the usual aspects, such as climate control and the monitoring of systems. These alarms are supervised by GleSYS personnel as well as Securitas and Coromatics security services.
All areas have smoke detectors, and the most sensitive areas, such as our server halls, have very early warning aspirating smoke detectors (VESDA) to identify a potential fire in the shortest time possible. Automatic fire extinguishing systems using gas are installed to protect electronic equipment.
Cooling: Every zone has redundant cooling systems with at least N+2 redundancy. All parts of the systems are checked and serviced two times per calendar year.
UPS: Each zone has its own Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) ensuring at least 10 minutes of power without any disruptions to all racks in the server halls. The system is checked and serviced twice per calendar year. All batteries are recycled. GleSYS support center is powered by its own UPS to ensure operation and upkeep even during power outages.
GleSYS Backbone is made up of several redundant core and distribution routers ensuring resilient connections for all equipment. From Falkenberg we are connected to Gothenburg and Stockholm via several WDM links.Find out more about GleSYS Backbone
Two emergency power generators provide electricity in the event of power outages. Each generator is tested by GleSYS personnel at least once a month. Generators are equipped to ensure seamless transitions between power supplies without disruptions. They are serviced at least once a year. Diesel is available to run the generators for 24 hours. They are tested in conjunction with our UPSs.
GleSYS support center is also connected to emergency power to maintain normal operations during a power outage.
Physical access & CCTV: All access to GleSYS data centers are managed centrally. All comings and goings to our facilities are logged. All areas are monitored by at least one security camera.
Locks & alarms: All areas are fitted with alarms connected to security services and premises are guarded outside office hours. Colocation racks are locked and accessible only by owners. Routers and dedicated servers are housed in a special area only accessible by trusted personnel.
