MCPS maintains a world-class facility with organic equipment under its own exclusive control. Our data center includes multiple and dedicated fiber paths, redundant cooling, two-stage UPS and generator power protection, FM-200 clean agent fire suppression, and 24-hour armed guard and electronic security.
MCPS servers are connected to collision-free, low-latency, fully switched
local network, with multiple outgoing lines for redundant connectivity
to the Internet. We are currently operating three fiber optic DS-3s connected
to three world-class network service providers or backbones. Our current
routing configuration gives us direct OC-192 connections to Qwest, UUnet,
We employ a two-stage power protection system to ensure the best response to power problems. The first stage is our industrial UPS system which provides redundant, scalable, online power protection for high-end equipment. Our UPS system has enough capacity to sustain operations for 45 minutes for the entire network. Should a power outage occur, our automatic transfer switch, (ATS), fails over to dedicated facility diesel generators. The ATS monitors utility power, and in the event of any significant interruption of power, automatically starts the generator and transfers all load once the generated power is clean. The entire switch over process takes less than .06 seconds.
