Our hosting center is fire protected with smoke detectors and a fire extinguishing system. We handle power outages by units, supplemented by a generator in case of power outages for longer periods of time. We have refrigeration and 100Mb Internet access.
Access to our hosting center meets the requirements of some of the strictest safety standards with personalized key code and iris scanning. The center is staffed and under video surveillance 24 hours a day, so that no unauthorized person can enter.
IBM Service Agreement
Our hardware and software are secured via a service agreement with IBM. This gives us among other things access to the system update, update to the newest operating system as well as help from IBM in Rochester, USA
IBM also monitors our servers and will instantly become aware of operational anomalies that could indicate future hardware failure. IBM addresses these problems by immediately replacing the affected components.
Additionally, we hold quarterly review meetings with IBM, where we carefully review reports of spikes and deviations. From these meetings we make a decision on further steps in our hosting center.
"No single point of failure"
All equipment and supplies are redundant – that is to say, an error in one unit or in an outcome in one delivery of e.g. power, cooling and Internet will not alone shut down the server. This helps to bring the up time closer to 100 percent.
We can offer to extend surveillance to 24/7 for both servers in and outside our hosting center. We have developed a monitoring system that monitors all processes on the server - and via a built-in roster ensures that the various events are forwarded to the right person - either as text message or e-mail. Today over 100 installations are monitored via this system.
Experience & Green profile
Our hosting center opened in 2009 and we have over the years improved our operating procedures and overall great experience, which now benefits our customers.
The Hosting Center has over the years used CO2-free power that comes from Danish wind turbines and Norwegian waterworks. The cooling system runs on free cooling when the outdoor temperature is below 16 degrees, which reduces power consumption significantly in a large part of the year.
We have a weekly backup cycle – that is, we make a complete backup on weekends and supplement with modified objects during the week. As a customer, it is possible to access the files via a web interface.
We can offer to set up your hosted solution for mirroring all transactions to a server in our second hosting center. This way, the solution is protected against the worst possible disaster.
We can offer an agreement to have a backup machine standing ready in case of an emergency, which prevents the operation from the customer's own machine – e.g. as a result of a fire in the engine room.
All our software solutions are especially developed for the IBM hardware platforms; AS/400, iSeries, i5, System i and Power Systems.
The supported operating systems are; OS/400, i5/OS and IBM i.
