Layered Tech Government Solutions manages production and disaster recovery IT infrastructure
for many of the world's largest government and commercial entities. The data center
facilities utilized by Layered Tech Government Solutions are some of the world's
finest Tier One telecommunications data center facilities. Each data center represents
a $100 million investment or more, and each data center provides some of the best
Internet connectivity available from within the largest TCP/IP network in the world.
Datacenter facilities utilized by Layered Tech Government Solutions deliver a high
performance, high reliability managed Internet infrastructure platform for our customers'
Internet-delivered solution. Our facilities include:
High Speed Redundant Connectivity to the Internet
Bandwidth Burstable Bandwidth Capacity of up to 1Gbps, or higher
Dual Power Grids
Massively Redundant UPS and Diesel Power Generators
24x7 Security and Network Monitoring
Advanced Fire Detection & Suppression
Robust Physical and Electronic Security
Network Monitoring Data center and network monitoring leverages the finest monitoring
technology available and is manned on a 24x7x365 basis with a team of up to 150 personnel
on-premises around the clock.
Physical Security Layered Tech Government Solutions Solutions are delivered from within
facilities in the mainland U.S.A. that have been government assessed and government
approved against U.S. government security standards. Layered Tech Government Solutions
engineering staff has experience with a wide scope of U.S. government security policies
and practices. Access to a customer's servers is restricted with multiple levels
of access control. Data center facilities are protected by uniformed guards on a
24x7 basis. Extensive use of video surveillance is deployed, monitored and stored
at all times.
Access to the data center is managed by several layers of authentication, including
biometric scanning, electronic key readers, man-traps, electronic key management
systems, and other authentication systems.
Climate Control A data center's performance depends on the right environmental climate.
Our data centers have a continuous circulation of conditioned air to provide the
ideal environment for servers, routers, and other equipment. Each data center uses
a sophisticated heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) system, and multiple
air handlers with redundant power feeds are located on the data center floor.
Fire Detection and Suppression Data center staff proactively monitors air quality,
via detection devices, which constantly test the air for combustible particles that
could lead to fire or damage equipment. In the unlikely event of a fire, smoke sensors
and heat detectors trigger a dry pipe, leak-resistant sprinkler system, which is
installed above the data center floor. If triggered, water will fill the pipes instantly
and direct the water only to the limited area affected by the fire.
Redundant Power Backup Our data center facilities are equiped with massively redundant
power generation. Each data center is served primary electrical power from atleast
two local power companies. Power is fed to redundant Uninterruptible Power Systems
(UPS's). Redundant Power Distribution Units (PDU's), distribute power to redundant
power strips. In addition to providing smooth, continuous power, the UPS battery
system serves as instant backup in the rare event of a power failure. For extended
power outages, our data centers are each equiped with multiple redundant diesel power
generators (some facilities have as many as seven separate diesel generators).
