Editor’s note: This is the second in a series of blog posts about Online Tech’s cloud locations and the teams that work behind the scenes.
Welcome back on our data center world tour! In our last post, we were in Michigan learning about Online Tech’s four data centers and headquarters. Today, we travel to Austin, Texas!
Aside from being known as the place for the SXSW music festival, Austin is also home to a burgeoning tech scene. Its central location within the US (four hour or less direct flight from nearly anywhere in the country) makes it ideal for data storage. Here are some other fun facts about our Austin location:
- The data center is located in the Met Center business park, which is ideally near both the city center and highway access. It boasts 45,000 square feet and is perfect for production and disaster recovery solutions.
- The facility is part of CyrusOne’s ultra-low latency National IX Internet fiber exchange, and offers the operational and uptime requirements needed to meet or exceed many of today’s compliance requirements including HIPAA, PCI, ISO 27001, FISMA, and TIA 942 Class 4.
- There is fully redundant 2N power and cooling onsite to ensure that any data stored there is always on and always available.
