located across the United States, and the world.

Physical Infrastructure
The datacenter sits atop three redundant electrical grids from TXU delivering diverse power to each quadrant of the building. HVAC needs are supplied via five one hundred ton onsite water chillers to deliver N+1 cooling requirements. Home to over twelve switch sites and thirty-five different carriers, INFOMART houses technology and telecom related businesses in a fully redundant complex communications ecosystem.

Redundant GigE Network Backbone
The datacenter employs multi-router gigabit connections to the Internap, SAVVIS, VERIO/NTT, and Abovenet core backbone exchanges. We use Cisco series 6500, 3750, 2900 routers and switches which enable gigabit speeds from AVLUX servers to the Internet.

Network IDS, IPS & DDOS protection
Industry best solutions from Tipping Point are utilized to guard against denial of service, malicious traffic, viruses, malware, phishing, spyware and other types of Internet threats via wire speed detection and remediation coupled with automatic zero day response.
