High-end servers, stellar support and management all housed inside an enterprise grade data center. Beautiful.
BigScoots operates out of a state of the art Steadfast data center located centrally in downtown Chicago, IL. The data center was constructed offering fully redundant N +1 power, HVAC, network connectivity and security. The facility sits atop multiple power grids with full UPS battery backup power, diesel generators on site and a network that is supplied by several separate premium network providers - Level(3), NTT, gtt and Cogent allowing for optimal speeds and reliability. Further, dozens more third party backbone providers are available in the facility such as Verizon, Global Crossing, Abovenet, Qwest, XO Communication and Sprint.
The fiber handed off to our Chicago data center is delivered over fully redundant paths, with diverse entry points and building risers. These facilities have been built to meet the high demands and reliability requirements of telecommunications providers and Fortune 500 companies, and have achieved the rigorous SAS70 and SSAE16 compliance audits.
As a nearly brand new data center opening during the mid-2010 year in downtown Chicago, it was constructed with some of
the most advanced technologies and high quality systems available. The datacenter has N+1 redundancy (optimized for single corded equipment)
and Starline busway which allow us to offer services at an extremely high value and with the highest levels of flexibility, specifically designed to facilitate redundancy and performance. While still being cognizant of price, the construction took great care to be as energy efficient as possible with air and water side economizers, variable speed fans, and variable valves to keep overall operating costs down. The result? 0 packet loss, 100% network up time and a steady load across the charts - The proof is in the pudding!
Being housed in one of the first SSAE16 compliant data centers in the country, our commitment to security is second to none.
APC has been the leader in data center power and infrastructure solutions since the early 80s. We use them exclusively for all UPS, PDU and rack equipment.
Since 2009, our data center has been a leader in IPv6 connectivity allowing all of our customers to take advantage of the new features and advantages of IPv6.
