Datacenter and Security Infrastructure
data center is constructed to offer high availability for
the hosted solutions offered by Omnistar Interactive. Omnistar
has partnered Rackspace which is the leader in managed hosting.
We are confident that the data center physical plant and network
infrastructure and security will allow our customers and partners
to know their data is secure and protected.
Best practices for high availability bandwidth are in place
such as the use of physically distant entry points for several
tier-one network carriers, including WilTel, SBC, Sprint, AT&T,
Qwest, Time Warner Telecom and MCI. Multiple edge routers and
an internally redundant network co-designed with Cisco provide
assurance that data will be routed to and from the Internet
with low latency and high availability. Rackspace data centers
offer a 100% network uptime guarantee (SLA). All important aspects
of network availability and performance are monitored by staff
on a 24x7 basis.
We know that a powerful HVAC system is essential for rooms packed
with rows of heat-producing servers. The HVAC system is equipped
with redundancy in the event that primary coolers experience
issues. To prevent accumulation of dust and keep everything
cool, the air in the data center is run through filters and
cycled every 90 seconds.
Each member of our staff is certified and experienced in maintaining
and monitoring critical systems and hardware. Rackspace employs
more RedHat Certified Engineers than any other hosting provider,
and employs than 60 staff members with Microsoft Certified Professional
certificates. Our employees’ combined experience is extremely
valuable in swiftly fixing common and not-so-common data center
State of the art fire suppression technology is also deployed
to immediately halt the progression of any detected fire and
to ensure key services to continue without any interruption.
Constant surveillance, biometric identification, keycards, and
a strict policy of limiting access only to employees who have
undergone thorough background checks, making sure that only
individuals with authorization have physical access to servers
and networked equipment.
