Data Center Power
Stafford Associates delivers complete data center power redundancy to servers as well as ventilation and air conditioning.
If our data center were to experience a power disruption for any reason, you're covered. That's because we have a complete power management system, including backup generators in the unlikely event that normal power supplies fail.
We give you one of the fastest and brightest Network Operation Centers (NOCs) in the business. All our collocation services include up to one hour of remote hands support per month. No need to bombard support with helpdesk tickets, we take care of you on your first call. In most cases, your issue will be resolved within minutes, allowing you to get back to more important things.
For Colocation customers with a Full Cabinet or larger you have exclusive 24x7x365 unescorted access to our Colocation facilities. Whether it's 2pm or 2am, you're free to check on your equipment any time of the day. For customer with smaller collocation space you still have 24x7x365 access via one of our escorts. Rest assured, you won't find anyone other than authorized personnel in our facilities. We're serious about security. Around-the-clock monitored closed circuit televisions, on-site security, and dual factor pass cards are just some of things we do to protect your equipment.
Your Colocation solution runs off our legendary Fast Fiber Network backbone. It's fast. It's rock-solid. And it's reliable. Get ready to experience greater uptime performance and a faster response to network issues. That's because we run it ourselves.
All collocation customers receive redundant power feeds for their equipment. We don't just rely on the local power grid to guarantee around-the-clock power. Our on-site diesel-powered generators and uninterruptible power systems (UPS) deliver redundant power if a critical incident occurs. This ensures all operations are uninterrupted and your dedicated servers remain running. We regularly test our infrastructure to perform as designed in the event of an emergency. And we back it all up with our 100% Power SLA.
Stafford Associates PCI & SSAE 16 AICPA / SOC Compliant Data Center
The first PCI & SSAE 16 AICPA / SOC data center in the Tri-State/Metropolitan area!
Major credit card companies have made it mandatory for merchants and credit card processors to meet the strict network security rules that went into effect in 2005. Compliance with these rules has not been wide spread and, because of the recent breaches in security, credit card companies are cracking down and imposing large fines an preventing some large volume companies from processing credit cards at all until these new security rules have been met. Stafford Associates is PCI Compliant (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard). We have become the first PCI Compliant Company in the Tri-State/Metropolitan area. PCI Compliance has enabled us to host credit card data from companies that are not themselves currently PCI Compliant. With our PCI Compliant Data Center, we can provide PCI compliant protection for your business!
