Stable and Redundant

Uninterruptible Power

Digital Fortress understands that the power is an important consideration when choosing a colocation facility and, therefore, ensures that power to their facility is stable, redundant, and abundant. Electricity is delivered to the building via dedicated underground Seattle City Light feeds. Digital Fortress provides clients with conditioned, Uninterruptible power via UPS units that feature dual independent circuits for full redundancy, Digital Fortress’s infrastructure is designed to support over 250 watts per square foot and can deliver power in both single and three phase AC configurations.

Long term backup and power is provided by 6 dedicated diesel generators that have a combined continuous run time of three days before refueling is required. All Digital Fortress facility services (racks, network, telephone, HVAC) are fed by the backup power system. The generators are load tested quarterly to maintain system readiness and functionality. All of this ensures that clients systems get constant, clean power regardless of what is happening externally.

Carrier-Neutral

Reliable Network

Digital Fortress understands that a data center is only as strong as its network, which is why Digital Fortress maintains a diverse and reliable network infrastructure. The building is served by multiple fiber providers, using separate physical pathways. Digital Fortress is licensed as a fully Autonomous System (AS3361) and the network is comprised of fully meshed architecture, guaranteeing multiple-configuration failover with client handoff capacities of up to 100 Gbps.

Digital Fortress is carrier neutral ensuring their clients inexpensive connections to numerous providers including the Seattle Internet Exchange (SIX).
