Protecting Your Data from a Disaster
The building where ColoCSX services are provided was specifically constructed for data center operations. The building is built on the second highest knoll in Jacksonville –27 feet above sea level–and comfortably outside the 100-year floodplain.
The walls of the data center are made of precast concrete attached to structural concrete columns and welded steel beams. The roof deck is made of inverted concrete double tees supported by structural precast concrete columns purposely built to sustain category four hurricane winds.
The roofing system is built up aggregate with asphalt bitumen, 2 plies of glass-fiber and a “stress-ply” garland top sheet. The data centers roof drains and scuppers can easily shed Category 4 hurricane rains.
The data center has a state-of-the-art lightning protections system that can dissipate a direct strike.
No ordinary office building indeed; but we take nothing for granted.
