Host NewsDALLAS, Texas – Limestone Networks, Inc., the Dallas-based dedicated hosting company has opened a new data center in the DataBank building in downtown Dallas.

The new Limestone Networks facility features all-fiber connectivity to the Internet and the latest in power, cooling and security systems.

“This is probably the most secure data center in commercial use,” says Gary Kendall, CEO of Limestone Networks. “The DataBank building used to house the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas. In 2000, it was thoroughly renovated to take advantage of its inherent security features, creating one of the most desirable facilities in the US for the server hosting industry.”

Limestone Networks has applied the most rigorous standards of design, testing and maintenance to their new facility to ensure maximum security and uptime for the critical data and applications of their clients. The facility enjoys:
• Six utility feeds from the Dallas Central Business District power grid, featuring reliable N+3 transformers with ATS switches, plus secure, concrete encased building feeds.
• UPS and Generator Backup Power using true A+B power configurations
• All UPS and Generator deployments provide N+1 redundancy provided by
– four 800 KVA MGE UPS systems
– two 1200 KVA CAT UPS Systems
– four 2.0 megawatt generators
– three 1.5 megawatt generators

Security for the new facility is maintained through:
• on site security, 24/7/365
• card access required to enter parking and building lobby
• biometric hand scanner required for data center entry
• annual SAS 70 Audits

A consistent data center environment is maintained by an HVAC Cooling System designed with N+1 redundancy and featuring
• 3500 Ton cooling tower capacity
• a multiplicity of 30 Ton Liebert CRAC Units.
• 80,000 gallon reserve make-up water tank
• Liebert Leak Detect System

Says Kendall: “We believe that our customers should never have any concerns whatsoever about the security, reliability and integrity of their hosted data and applications. That’s the reason we built this new facility.”
