Sonic's colocation center in the Bay Area offers state-of-the-art facilities, design and connectivity to the Internet. The datacenter is served by multiple fiber carriers for diverse connectivity and has been engineered with redundant systems for maximum availability and security.
The datacenter is connected to utility power, and backed by a diesel generator with an indefinite fueling contract. Liebert UPS systems provide power conditioning during normal operations and power transfer situations.
Designed for zero points of failure, the facility is fed by multiple dual-entrance SONET OC-12 fiber rings, and gigabit fiber. Upstream traffic is served on separate fiber carriers out of San Francisco and San Jose.
Unique cooling management systems allow 3-dimensional view and control of temperature distribution within each cabinet space. Perforated cabinets draw front-injected air for even flow.
Datacenter access is regulated by a mantrap requiring a keycard and biometric scan. Cabinet keys, video surveillance, and access alerts ensure a secure, monitored environment.
Adding to advanced monitoring and cooling to prevent fires, the datacenter's fire protection measures include an FM-200 system, considered the best waterless fire suppressant.
Multiple rolling KVMs are available for use within the datacenter. A colocation office with ethernet jacks and a PC is available 24/7. A conference room is available by reservation.
Available is a large kitchen with fresh food, snack and beverage vending, showers, and an outdoor eating area.
