Features — Toronto Data Centre

State-of-the-Art Security

  • Biometric security enforced through an iris scanner offers one of the most accurate, non-invasive security measures to ensure only authorized people enter the facility
  • Guarded entrances have security cameras to scan and digitally record the interior and exterior of the facility 24 hours a day
  • Security cameras incorporate low-light technology to allow clear visibility at night

Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) systems and a high capacity generator

  • Caterpillar 500 Kilowatt diesel generator with a twin turbo diesel motor that holds 3600 litres of fuel
  • In the event of a power failure, the generator requires only five seconds to start and reach maximum generating capacity
  • All equipment in the Internet Data Centre server room is powered from UPS systems designed with redundant NuWave modular UPS to ensure the equipment continues to operate in the event of a power failure

Redundant Cooling System

  • The server room has tonnes of redundant cooling delivered by Liebert systems
  • Each unit has redundant compressors and AC units that are computer controlled to maintain temperature and humidity in the facility

Fire Suppression System

  • Fire suppression capabilities are executed through FM-200 gas that extinguishes fire without water, to ensure no water damage to the IDC's equipment
  • The back-up sprinkler system is installed and operates as a pre-action system, keeping pressurized air in the pipes
  • The air is only replaced with water when the pipes reach a high temperature and the smoke detection system determines there is an active fire due to smoke.
