Redundant Power

FastVirtual's data center is capable of withstanding multi-day power outages.

Our electrical power redundancy starts with a 40KW Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) system. At current load levels, this system is capable of providing at least 30 minutes of backup power.

In addition to the UPS system, the data center is connected to a 250KW diesel generator with a 500 gallon reserve. This is sufficient to power all our systems for at least seven days at current load levels. In the event of an extended power outage, our fuel supplier can be on site within 3 hours. The generator can be refueled while running, so power is not interrupted.

For further information, please see the Data Center Overview.
