Your website is only as good as the network and datacenter that powers it.

While we've maintained our office - since 1999 - in San Diego, Regional Internet partners with multiple Tier 1 (and above) datacenter facilities throughout the USA and Canada. These facilities currently include:

  • San Diego, CA (CAS) - This Facility is staffed 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. HVAC advanced airflow monitoring systems ensure proper temperature and humidity levels are maintained around the clock. Redundant Liebert conditioning units are found throughout the facility. Dual power generators are maintained for maximum uptime. These generators feed multiple UPS systems that provide uninterrupted power to the floor. Power distribution is handled by redundant Power Distribution nodes throughout the floor. This power system can sustain operation for up to 2 full weeks at maximum load without power from the primary San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) grid. On the main floor, CO2 Gas Powered Fire Suppression systems are used, while in high voltage areas FM200 systems provide protection from fire. The Network Core is a high security area housing 10 Tier 1 Fiber connections, and 6 core Cisco routers. From this room Internet connectivity is fed redundantly to the different segments of the provider network. This facility is the single most fiber connected building in San Diego.

  • Dallas, TX (TXD) - Network connectivity in Dallas includes 20 gigs of connectivity to providers, including Level3 - terminating on diverse fiber paths to the Infomart on Stemmons and also to 2323 Bryan at TELX. This diverse connectivity puts the facility ahead of much of the competition that still relies on single building locations for network termination.

  • Kansas City, MO (MOK) - Primary power comes from utility power supplied by Kansas City Power & Light. Designated a critical infrastructure building, Kansas City Power & Light provides three power feeds to the facility. These feeds are connected in parallel and each draws from a different independent power grid. Secondary and temporary power to the data center is supplied by UPS battery systems. In addition, a separate UPS system maintains all critical networking infrastructure. Third and final backup power comes from a 400 kilowatt diesel generator. Fuel access points on the ground level of the building allow refueling of the generator tanks at any time. The generator can be run indefinitely to supply power to the facility. Due to the multiple power grids coming into the building, the facility has never lost utility power. However, in the event of loss of utility power, the automatic transfer switch moves the power source from utility to diesel generator. The UPS systems supply temporary power during the time required for the generator to fire up. Network feeds in this facility are from Hurricane Electric, Cogent Communications, and the Kansas City Internet Exchange (KCIX). Facility security includes biometric hand scanner access, monitored 24/7/365 by security cameras.

  • Atlanta, GA (GAA) - The Atlanta facility is dual fed from the power grid and protected though multiple redundant N+1 paralleled generator and UPS power systems. Each UPS is configured with an additional full wrap-around bypass for extra redundancy. All power systems are monitored by a state of the art computerized building management system. Power generators have day tanks fed from redundant pumps from a 12,000 gallon reserve tank. The system is powered by state of the art by Cummins turbocharged generators and digital fuel management system by Simplex and Veeder-Root. The facility has enough onsite fuel to run for several days without refueling. Sitting on one of AGL's main fiber backbones, the Atlanta facility operates with multiple 10 G Ethernet connections back to key communications centers in Atlanta.

  • Beauharnois, Quebec (Canada) (QCM) - This facility, in a Montreal suburb, is a massive energy-efficient mega-datacenter built in a fomer Rio Tinto Alcan alumnium plant. The facility has unique airflow, designed to allow waste heat to rise and exit through a central ceiling vent. There are 3 separate power supplies - including a hydro-electric dam located 300 yards away from the building. The facility has modern backup generators that maintain 48-hour autonomy.
