We feature multiple connections to the power grid, all-fiber connectivity, redundant power and cooling systems, and multiple security layers. Our National and Data Center networks are characterized by their highly redundant, fault-tolerant architecture and best-of-breed carrier class components. Upon this strongly rooted foundation, a powerful framework was constructed to enable our customers to run their web sites and applications with maximum peace of mind.
- All-fiber connectivity
- Multiple power grid connections
- redundant power and cooling systems
- multiple security layers.
This Cleveland colocation datacenter is conveniently located downtown, just minutes from all major regional highways: I-90, I-77, I-71, OH SR2, and I-480. The perimeter is constructed with two physical layers of concrete reinforced material. There are two physical layers of doors to the data center consisting of heavy gauge steel security grade construction.
This facility provides 20,000 square feet of anti-static, 19″ raised floor. The raised floor area is supplied by Industrial class Uninterruptible Power Systems [UPS] boasting 940 Kilovolt amperes (kVA) of power capacity, with expansion capabilities up to 2.1 Megawatts.
The UPS systems are redundantly supplied by diversely distributed utility power and backed up by two generators.
- 8,800 gallons at 1.7 megawatt
- 6,800 gallons at 2.1 megawatts
The Cleveland colocation datacenter is protected by a state-of-the-art laser air sampling fire detection technology, backed by a pre-action, double interlocked dry pipe fire protection system. The laser air sampling system is capable of detecting particles of combustion as low as 0.0015%/ft (0.005%/m), which is 2000 times more sensitive than conventional smoke detectors. The higher sensitivity of the detector allows it to detect low energy fires even in high airflow environments, which tend to dilute smoke concentrations.
The state-of-the-art DSX security system maintains access control to authorized personnel via proximity card and key pad at all data center entrances. A violation of the systems protocol automatically triggers an alarm that is monitored by two redundant and geographically diverse monitoring centers. Video surveillance is applied at every entrance and throughout the data center facility. Recorded archives are maintained for a minimum of 90 days.
Fiber and telecommunications connectivity is diversely routed via separate physical building entrances, and diverse conduit paths into the Cleveland data center itself. All of the major global carriers with large regional network footprints are fiber terminated directly inside of the Bluemile Data Center. All network services are distributed via an overhead multi-tier ladder rack system, and Bluemile is continuously engaging new carriers to enhance connectivity options.

Constant temperature and humidity control is maintained by 240 tons of HVAC cooling, distributed via a pressurized downdraft system under 19” of raised floor.
This facility maintains 24x7x365 on-site Network Operations Center (NOC). The NOC provides access control for physical security and monitors the always-on security and video systems. Physical patrols of the data center occur on a regular basis around the clock.
Uniformed lobby security guards control access to the building entrances and elevators after hours, on weekends, and holidays. There is no access to the 5th floor data center off hours that is unescorted. An hourly patrol of the entire building occurs from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. Monday through Friday and 24 hours a day on weekends and holidays.
