Data Center Infrastructure: Physical Security & Disaster Protection

The definition of hybrid cloud means different things to different people, and the emergence of the Hybrid Solution Center involves a variety of moving parts. What separates LightEdge from other providers is our ability to architect, orchestrate, and manage those moving parts within the customer’s unique hybrid cloud environment.

We invite you to follow along as LightEdge breaks down the intricate components that make up our Hybrid Solution Centers, and how they could empower your business operations and success. This week, we will start at the base of what makes our offering so strong and secure, our facilities and infrastructure.

LightEdge’s data centers, located in Des Moines, Omaha and Kansas City, provide physical security, natural disaster protection, and state-of-the-art power, cooling and management systems. The private, high-speed connectivity between all LightEdge data centers is what naturally enables:

  • Peak application performance
  • Low latency, redundancy
  • No single points of failure
  • Customer-specific disaster recovery options.

Data Center Infrastructure and Connectivity

Our proven data center design includes 200+MPH wind-tested joints, dry pipe fire suppression, a hardened pre-cast structure, and VESDA. Our underground redundant feeds allow for uninterrupted power. Among many other security features, our data centers include mantraps for 1-in-1-out movement, and multi-factor authentication techniques that include BioScans and pin codes.

LightEdge’s Hybrid Solutions Centers are enabled by ease of networking and connectivity and offers customers multiple ways to connect from premise based environments, as well as Public Cloud access. Nothing requires customers to understand the intricacies of networking.
