Uninterruptable Power Systems

Our power systems feature extensive fault tolerance and resilience at every layer. From multiple uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) with redundant battery cabinets, to Liebert Precision and Eaton Power distribution units that handle final power transformation and distribution to racks, we ensure clean consistent power to our data center equipment. In addition, each facility has multiple emergency generators waiting on standby.

Cooling

Environmental processing systems include upflow and downflow CRAC units that include pumped refrigerant systems to help ensure maximum efficiency while maintaining precision server inlet temperature. Temperature and humidity are precisely regulated year round to ensure optimal equipment reliability. Each unit contains independent compressors and cooling loops to further enhance fault tolerance and reliability. Air filtration systems actively remove foreign particles from circulation and cycle the entire data center air supply in a matter of minutes.

On-site Security

Specialized electronic security systems control access to the data center and are accompanied by a full complement of motion detecting security cameras which monitor the entire facility at all times.  Our data centers’ external walls are reinforced poured concrete and the building and grounds are patrolled regularly by an on-site security officer, our fully managed facilities have highly trained technicians on-site 24 hours a day, providing a incredibly fast incident response times.

SSAE-16 (FORMERLY SAS 70) COMPLIANT

Through our diligent efforts and an ongoing commitment to excellent business practices, Liquid Web recently completed a SOC 2 attestation performed under the newly released AICPA SSAE 16 attestation standard that replaces the SAS 70 standard. In undertaking this examination, Liquid Web utilized the SOC 2 Trust Services Principles and Criteria for security and availability as a benchmark in developing our system description. We’ve painstakingly addressed each of the more than 100 individual controls criteria listed in the SOC 2 Principles and Criteria. This attestation ensures that anyone choosing to business with Liquid Web can do so with complete confidence.

SOC 3 REPORT

In addition to issuing a SOC 2 SSAE 16 report for our clients concerned about our controls relevant to their financial statement reporting, Liquid Web also engaged our independent CPA firm to perform a review in order to produce a SOC 3 report. The SOC 3 report offers a slightly more streamlined level of reporting. Our SOC 3 report was produced to address risks related to IT in critical areas including:

  • Security: The system is protected, both logically and physically, against unauthorized access

  • Availability: The system is available for operation and use as committed or agreed to.
