Digital Fortress understands that 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 very high loads and can deliver power in both single and three phase AC configurations.
Long term backup and power is provided by multiple 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 frequently to maintain system readiness and functionality. All of this ensures that clients systems get constant, clean power regardless of what is happening externally.
