Data Centre Facilities

Data Centre Facilities

In order to provide services with enterprise-level availability and resilience, we have invested heavily in our data centre facilities over a number of years. Through extensive partnerships with Equinix, Internet Solutions, Teraco and Everest, Redstor can provide geographically local services, guaranteeing data sovereignty, regardless of the location of your organisation. Our data centres and secure online backup service facilities offer impressive levels of security, redundancy and availability and are connected by diverse fibre links.

Availability

Our data centres provide global average uptime of >99.999%. To ensure electricity is always available, our facilities provide a minimum of N+1 power redundancy, meaning every mission-critical component has at least one backup power feed that kicks in when there’s an outage. Data centres also have enough fuel on site to provide 24 to 48 hours of emergency power using backup generators, and we have guaranteed fuel delivery contracts to replenish those supplies. Routine daily, weekly and monthly maintenance ensures optimal performance without interruption to data centre services.
