VDC Data Center


Location & Security

We are located in the Concourse Building and development park. Our research park is home to the $300 million dollar Synchrotron which is just 2 blocks from our office. Saskatoon is a geographically central city in North America and is a natural disaster free zone.

Our research park is also home to RADARSAT which is a key part of the Canadian Space Agency satellite program. Our facilities feature state-of-the-art electronic security, automatic sensing systems, and high standards for energy efficiency.

The premises are patrolled by security personnel 24/7/365 and our premises are monitored using advanced security alarm system and digital video security equipment.

All building access is monitored and recorded. Each staff member is required to have criminal record checks and the data center access is limited to key staff only.

Technology Providers

Our data center uses genuine IBM X-Series rack mount servers utilizing the latest Multi-Core Xeon processors running Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Data Center Edition with Hyper-V R2 technology. All servers have dual redundant power supplies. Our network is protected using multiple layers of security starting with a pair of redundant Cisco ASA 5500 series Firewalls. All equipment is protected using APC Smart-UPS battery backups which are connected to emergency backup natural gas generators that can provide an endless supply of emergency power.

All servers are connected to IBM fiber channel SANs which are comprised of SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) hard drives running in RAID-10. This configuration provides the ultimate in speed and redundancy. All SANs have redundant fiber channel controllers and power supplies which are connected using redundant UPS systems.

All Virtual Machines are backed up to a separate IBM SAN storing multiple recovery points for quick restorations. These backups are also collocated to our IBM library for off-site backup.

Network Access

We are connected using redundant fiber connections through Shaw/BigPipe and Bell/GT that utilize BGP routing which ensures you get fastest connection possible.

Shaw Business Solutions has over 625,000 kilometers of fiber across North America and has capacity in excess of 1Tbps while Bell is comprised of two completely diverse fiber routes with redundant SONET OC-192 rings.

Our connection partners provide peering with all major networks and provide our clients with a 99.99% uptime guarantee.

Cooling & Environment

Our data center is temperature controlled and monitored using an electronic sensing system. We utilize redundant APC InRow chilled water cooling towers which are provided a constant flow of chilled water from the research park.
