OVER 20,000 SQUARE FEET OF CONDITIONED DATA CENTRE SPACE
Our HVAC (Heating Centilation Air Conditioning) systems have full filtering and humidity control. The environment within the data center is maintained at a cool 68 degrees to ensure that your servers are functioning at their best, in an optimal environment.
Backup Power Systems
We do not rely upon the local power grid to guarantee uptime. Our data centers’ on-site, diesel-powered generators and centralized Uninterruptible Power Systems (UPS) provide power conditioning and ensure 100% uninterrupted data center operation. The generators are regularly tested to make certain that they will function as needed in the event of an emergency.
Rebel Networks utilized the Peer1 Network, as well as Cogentco, is fully redundant and uses redundant fiber entry points connecting with only Tier 1 upstream providers such as AT&T, Savvis, Sprint and MCI. We guarantee 100% uptime and will provide you with credit for any downtime experienced, as detailed in our Service Level Agreement (SLA)
In Toronto, we house our systems at 151 Front Street
151 Front Street acts as a primary North American communications hub for telecommunications carriers and data centre firms from around the globe. As a connection point for corporate data networks, local and long distance telephony, internet peering and critical storage facilities, the 151 Front Street building has been designed to accomodate the highest standards of security reliability and connectivity.
Points of Entry
151 Front Street has more than 25 Points of Entry (POE) penetrating the building, offering an extensively diverse pathway and “Fiber Connectivity” solution for any subscriber or service provider wishing to enter. 151 Front Street can be entered from all sides, increasing the number of right-of-ways that can be used to gain access. Further, the proximity to the rail lines, a major right-of-way for national fiber optic loops, enhances access to national networks.
Located in the heart of the building, 151 Front Street manages a highly secure fiber optic Meet-Me room, offering easy access from building entry points; it is adjoined by a diverse riser system. Built in 2000, this room now houses access points for networks literally spanning the globe. Phase 2 or a secondary Meet-Me Room will be coming to the building soon.
The Riser System consists of two diverse pathways linked directly to the Meet-Me Room and connecting vertical pathways to the penthouse level. The system offers diversity for your networking requirements as well as lease of installation for speed and cost savings.
Uniformed security patrol the premises and surrounding area 24/7/365 as part of a customized security system and protocol while optical turnstiles and door entry card access provide a second level of security. Tenants also deploy their own proprietary security systems. Access to all high-security areas, such as the Meet-Me Room and Rise Systems, require a supervisor to monitor all personnel.
A reliable source of primary power is of paramount importance to 151 Front’s 7/24/365 operation – an expensive but necessary venture to secure a reliable power supply from the local substation. In 2001, two new 4000/5000KVA transformers were added to ensure the reliability of 151 Front’s power supply. These transformers are fed by dual underground 13.8 Kv feeder lines from the local substation.
New district cooling provides chilled water to the building according to pre-determined temperature capacity, and consumption. With our tenants’ higher than normal cooling requirements, this ensures a reliable chilled water supply that can easily grow with the building’s needs. Many 151 Front tenants have installed secondary cooling units “Condensers” on the roof area.
Diesel Fuel Farm
To support the generator power plant, 151 Front Street’s environmentally compliant diesel fuel storage facilities can house up to 44,000 gallons in tenant-owned tanks providing fuel to the generators. 151 Front Street owns the street at the back of the property, thus refueling tucks and roll-up generators enjoy unrestricted access to ensure their facilities 24/7/365 operation during an emergency.
151 Front Street pre-engineered the placement of structural steel to support the added weight and vibration (now housing 18 generators) in full operation. To facilitate tenant requirements for secondary cooling, a similar structural steel grid was installed on the uppermost roof to accomodate the array of condensers, fluid coolers, glycol pumps and chillers.
