Our Data Center
Jcobi is proud to be partners with RackSpace - the world's leader in hosting. RackSpace shares our dedication to providing the expertise, support, services and solutions that our clients need now and ten years down the road. Through this partnership, we are able to offer our clients a level of security, stability, and network accessibility that simply is not feasible for individual schools.
Keycard protocols, biometric scanning protocols and round-the-clock interior and exterior surveillance monitor access to every one of the data centers.
Only authorized data center personnel are granted access credentials to the data centers. No one else can enter the production area of the datacenter without prior clearance and an appropriate escort.
Every data center employee undergoes multiple and thorough background security checks before they're hired.
Every data center's HVAC (Heating Ventilation Air Conditioning) system is N+1 redundant. This ensures that a duplicate system immediately comes online should there be an HVAC system failure.
Every 90 seconds, all the air in the data centers is circulated and filtered to remove dust and contaminants.
The advanced fire suppression systems are designed to stop fires from spreading in the unlikely event one should occur.
Should a total utility power outage ever occur, all of the data centers' power systems are designed to run uninterrupted, with every server receiving conditioned UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) power.
The UPS power subsystem is N+1 redundant, with instantaneous failover if the primary UPS fails.
If an extended utility power outage occurs, the routinely tested, on-site diesel generators can run indefinitely.
Core Routing Equipment
Only fully redundant, enterprise-class routing equipment is used in Rackspace data centers.
Fiber carriers enter the data centers at disparate points to guard against service failure.
All networking and security teams working in the data centers are certified. It is a requirement that they be thoroughly experienced in managing and monitoring enterprise level networks.
Certified Network Technicians are trained to the highest industry standards.
RackSpace offers a 100% Network Uptime Guarantee. How is that possible?
They use the network only for their customers' hosting needs, never sharing it with telecom services or cable TV services that would negatively affect service.
The only bandwidth used is high performance bandwidth, which usually isn't the case with cheaper hosting providers.
They provide multiple redundancies in the flow of information to and from the data centers, and they partner with nine network providers.
Every fiber carrier must enter the data centers at separate points. This is to protect clients from complete service failures caused by an unlikely network cut.
Clients get fast and reliable network connections because Proactive Network Management methodology monitors route efficiency and end-user performance, automatically improving the network's topology and configuration in real-time.
They purposely underutilize the network, making it resilient to even the largest Internet routing issues.
To sum it up:
Jcobi completely removes the significant burden of securing, storing, and backing up your school's important data. And we remove the stress and expense of maintaining and securing your own servers.
We give our clients the freedom to focus on what they do best:
