Our data center (code named DLLSTX2) is located in the heart of downtown Dallas, TX. It is in a Tier 3+ facility on the same protected power grid as Dallas 911 and the local hospitals. This means we are exempt from rolling blackouts that historically have been an occurrence due to the Texas summer heat. Power is sent to the data center from four different substations, requiring all four substations to go offline before power to the building is interrupted. Additionally, the data center is serviced by water feeds from the north and south of the building.
Our network is fully resiliant with built-in redundancy for maximum speed and reliability. All Rapid Servers' servers have access to two networks within our infrastructure. The public network connects your servers to the Internet through multiple Tier 1 carriers. Our private network allows you to set up a private tunnel between your own servers for secure, encrypted traffic invisible from the outside.
Our network consists of redundant Cisco border routers and core routers with redundant links to each switch. Furthermore each fiber pair supports automatic failover for fast, reliable connectivity.
