Monticello Data Center

Our Monticello datacenter provisions its services from its secure and high efficiency data center located in Monticello, IA, USA.

Our Monticello data center building is heavily reinforced, purposely built to withstand the ravages of a close range nuclear weapon strike. No other natural disaster compares to the amount of damage inflicted by a multi-megaton nuclear bomb detonated at close range. Very few data centers can claim to be tornado proof. We can, with 100% confidence, claim to be able to operate during and after a direct encounter with an EF5 tornado. Our Monticello is the tornado proof data center!

Facility

  • 2N UPS true dual power paths to each rack, by default
  • 2N on site generation – underground inside the data center
  • 3N fuel stores – above ground, and underground fuel stores
  • 3N cooling – underground, inside the data center
  • 2N IP connectivity served by two completely geographically diverse tier 1 internet providers, with fiber from opposite directions. Single (BGP4 combined) or dual data drops to each rack (2N) are available.
  • Sub micron air filtration designed in to data center to filter air against chemical, biological, or radiological threats.

Security

  • The facility is over 200 feet in elevation higher than the nearest flood plain.
  • Nearest flood plain is over two miles away.
  • No municipal water supplies within two miles of the property. Flooding from broken water mains is not a possibility!
  • Redundant water wells, provide water on site, large water storage allows operation for two weeks upon simultaneous failure of both wells.
  • Rural location. Away from any population centers or other structures that could be considered a target for terrorism.
  • More than three miles of buried geothermal tubing on the data center campus provide a heat sink for the geothermal heat pump cooling system.
  • Zero common points of failure.
  • Entire facility, including all critical infrastructure, such as generators, fuel, and air-conditioning condensers that are typically exposed in even the most “hardened” of data centers, are located entirely below ground.
  • Zero shared real estate tenants on site.
  • Ability to survive multiple contingency situations.
