Terremark’s Culpeper data center is located at 18155 technology drive, Culpeper, VA 22701. Strategically located 60 miles from Washington DC, the NAP of capital region opened in June 2008 is the most secure and technologically sophisticated data center in the eastern United States.
Culpeper data center is a Tier III infrastructure. The colocation services are provided through open racks, cabinets, and customized caged floor spaces. The data center currently provides five 50,000 square feet of space with six 100,000 square feet planned. At present, it provides a total of 150,000 square feet of raised floor with an expansion to 850,000 square feet planned. The 72,000 square feet main office building includes a 150 seats auditorium, and approximately 50,000 square feet of class A office space. The data center is a SAS 70 Type II certified facility. The data center provides excellent security that includes DoD trained anti-terrorism personal staff, 10 feet earth berm surrounding the entire campus with 150 building setback, roving perimeter security guards and operating building security guards, and video surveillance of interior/exterior of building. The data center resource access is granted through electronic card reader and biometric scan authentication. The state of art fire detection and suppression system using the latest advances in pre action water is installed in the data center.
The data center provides N+ 2 configured power with 100 % SLA on power. The data center presently is fed with 30 MW of power, and expansion to 100 MW. Initial engineering provides for 160 watts per square feet of power density with the ability to configure 500 watts per square feet and beyond. The entire critical load is protected through UPS system, and immediate shift of all load to diesel generators with run time in excess of nine days uninterrupted. Each building’s substation/power generation plant is cross-connected with the others, creating a highly robust and protected medium voltage infrastructure. The N+2 configured HVAC effectively control cooling and humidity levels in the data center. Tiered Infrastructure Maintenance Standards (TIMS) is used for performance trending, capacity analysis, alerts, automated response and reporting.
The data center is a carrier neutral facility, and is connected to all Terremark facility optical peering switches. Fiber optic cable distribution scheme provides three physically diverse entry points for carriers to the two meet-point rooms and out to the operating buildings. An additional dark fiber link is designed to terminate in the Herndon Technology Center (HTC) and provides access to additional nine local carriers. The NOC provides colocation related services including remote hands/smart hands, installation services, staging and engineering services.
