AUSTIN, TX – We were all put to the test last month in Texas by the storm that’s now being billed as the worst storm in decades. Whether the power was out at your home or office, you got stuck at a blinking light or your flight was delayed, chances are you were one of the thousands affected by the emergency rolling blackouts. One of our employees was visiting a customer when the power went out in their office building forcing their employees to go home. This storm got us thinking: what would you do if the power was out for hours or even days? Can you afford to be one of those companies?
OnRamp’s Austin Data Center was prepared to handle this power emergency, operated seamlessly throughout the rolling blackouts our Austin Data Center operates at a minimum of (n +1) redundancy or greater on every component within each of its critical systems (Power, HVAC, Fire Suppression, Lightening Protection, Security, etc). Our generators automatically handle the facility load if city power were to fail in a rolling blackout, and our fuel providers are standing ready to re-fuel, if need be. Additionally, every component of each of the critical subsystems is monitored 24/7/365 by OnRamp expert engineers in our Network Operations Center (NOC) through a combination of best-in-class industry software, internally developed systems, and remote enunciators. So in this power emergency, our customers could rest assured that the Austin Data Center would be unaffected by the rolling outages.
