Energy efficient, reliable, secure and well connected Data Centre
The Candos Data Centre provides for a wide range of customer co-location and hosting needs with energy-efficient, reliable, secure and well connected co-location facilities. The latter is designed for customers wishing to house racks of servers, storage and networking equipment in either dedicated or syndicated mode.
Power and cooling facilities are setup with redundancy ensuring high levels of service availability. On-site generator provides failover for the grid power, and is rated to match the power used by the site. Fuel storage tanks provide for 24 hours of operation at full load. Battery-powered UPS systems protect against power failure and provide continuous supply to IT loads until the generator takes over.
The Data Centre network infrastructure is directly connected to the core IP network of Mauritius Telecom offering a wide range of network connectivity, such as E1, MPLS, Internet and Point-to-Point, for data replication and bandwidth requirements from external sites provisioned through fiber optics or copper link. Bandwidth services for DR usage can be provided according to customer needs.
The Candos Recovery Site is secure. It is permanently monitored with round-the-clock guard patrol. The Recovery Centre is under constant video surveillance with instant alerts to key personnels and recording capability. Service and delivery vehicles may be parked within the secured compound. Access security is maintained throughout the building by use of zoned access system and two-factor authentication to Data Centre and key areas. Visitors are escorted at all times. Access to the facility is on an appointment basis only.
