Open since 2008, and one of two data centers located in the San Diego Metropolitan area, redIT’s carrier neutral data center on 12270 World Trade Drive also serves as redIT’s corporate headquarters and was built to accommodate surging demand for redITs cloud and data center services.
redIT’s World Trade drive location is 88,000 square feet and offers clients access to custom suites, secured cages and locking cabinets. Multi-factor security requirements are present throughout the facility and include 24/7 video surveillance, biometric scanners, and an on-site network operations center that is staffed continuously.
Its power infrastructure is run on two separate electrical systems (2N) which provides over 25 Megawatts of power to the facility. Backup power is provided by two 2MW Caterpillar generators. There are also three diverse fiber paths to the building, allowing clients access to multiple ISPs and network carriers.
Aside from providing clients with customizable IT solutions, redIT’s data centers stand out because of their proprietary power, cooling and network connectivity systems. For power, redIT deploys at each of its data center a 2N redundant system, whereby power from each redundant source never come in contact. For cooling, redIT deploys an advanced DuctSox architecture which blows cold air down, allowing hot air to naturally rise and be pushed off the data center floor. Finally, network connectivity is also critical, and to support clients needs, redIT owns a private 10Gbps layer 2 network that forms a ring around their San Diego, Los Angeles, Phoenix and Mexico data centers. This allows for expanded network connectivity options (including those needed internationally) and more robust disaster recovery solutions.
In business since 2001, redIT specializes in data center and cloud infrastructure services. redIT operates 8 data centers, including 4 located in the United States. Its clients come from a wide range of sectors and backgrounds including information technology, banking and finance, professional services, and fortune 500 companies.
