For the better part of a decade, Atmosera has owned, operated, and offered TYPE-II SSAE 16 compliant data centers to clients who need secure space, power, and cooling to deploy their mission critical applications. We also leverage 21 additional data centers in the U.S. and abroad through strategic alliances. We offer a range of options from racks and full cabinets to secure cages. We also have network connectivity from several service providers.
Clients benefit from multiple hardened layers of security, reliability, and protection, combined with rigorous operational and maintenance procedures. We provide professional services that include remote hands, monitoring, and backup. We operate three data centers in the Portland Metropolitan area: Data Center 1 (DC1) and Data Center 2 (DC2) located in Beaverton, and Data Center 3 (DC3) located downtown Portland.
DC2 provides clients an ideal space to deploy their infrastructure and mission critical applications. We offer a safe and secure environment complete with space, power, and cooling with the following features:
Atmosera’s colocation facilities are Type-II SSAE 16 audited, providing external validation that controls are in place to ensure the highest levels of security and availability. Our Command Center is staffed 24x7x24 to monitor all systems as well as the campus-wide internal and perimeter video surveillance cameras.
DC2 incorporates innovative technologies and methodologies designed to reduce energy consumption and achieve a Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) of 1.3 or better. Because of the energy efficiencies gained compared to conventional data center designs, this is the first data center project to qualify for funding through the Oregon Department of Energy’s State Energy Loan Program (SELP). With the help of Energy Trust of Oregon, EasyStreet played a pioneering role in developing the Oregon Department of Energy’s expertise in the area of efficient data center design.
Atmosera procures 100% Portland General Electric Clean Wind℠ power offsets for DC1 and DC2 as well as our headquarters. Although it cost more to build than a conventional facility — and although renewable power will cost us a premium — the efficiencies gained by design means we can provide our services with no “green surcharge” to our clients.
Our facilities are designed to help you access your equipment when you need to. We also provide convenient space for you to work including a lobby area for equipment preparation with Internet access. Our loading dock is directly adjacent to the data center and we provide escort services while you load and unload your equipment. We offer a range of professional services from “remote hands” and active monitoring to architecture, design, procurement, and installation all tailored to enable faster deployments and flawless ongoing operations. Clients can also select proactive monitoring services for their applications and/or infrastructure using SolarWinds® Orion and our 24x7x365 Command Center.
An innovative Indirect Evaporative Cooling (IEC) system from AMAX® is key to efficiency and outstanding PUE. Direct Expansion (DX) packages provide supplemental cooling when required.
A 25,000-gallon underground tank collects rainwater from the roof. It is filtered and used by the IEC units to cool the hot air exhausted through the return duct. Reclaimed water is supplemented by city water when necessary. 100% of our city water usage is offset by BEF Water Restoration Certificates.
A highly-sensitive VESDA aspirating smoke detection (ASD) system. Alerts are enunciated in the Command Center and alarms are sent to a third-party alarm company. A gas-free, pre-action sprinkler system provides fire suppression.
DC2 is monitored by Atmosera’s Command Center 7x24x365 including infrastructure power, client branch circuits, temperature and humidity, generators, switchgear, UPSs, cooling plant, and life safety. We follows strict protocols to control and surveil all access:
Atmosera leverages multiple upstream connections, a fully redundant infrastructure, abundant capacity and years of connectivity experience to deliver unsurpassed network reliability. Atmosera is a carrier-neutral facility with multiple providers, including AboveNet, CenturyLink, Level 3, Comcast, Freewire Broadband, Frontier, Integra, LS Networks and Time Warner. We provide high capacity service with lower-cost choices for backup, Disaster Recovery (DR), synchronization, and more. DC2 has a direct fiber path to DC1 and multiple options including:
Atmosera is a founding member of the Northwest Access Exchange (NWAX), a regional Internet exchange with a Point of Presence (PoP) at Atmosera. NWAX provides peering and transit services over a gigabit Ethernet fabric, and interconnects nearly 20 major ISP, business and public/education networks, providing the highest possible performance with local peers.
