Our 208,000 square foot Fremont 2 Colocation Facility is located in the heart of Silicon Valley with easy access from two major freeways (880, 680). Three international airports (SJC, OAK, SFO) are a short distance away. Our Fremont 1 Colocation Facility is located 1.5 miles north. Ample free parking is always available at our Fremont colocation facilities, convenient to the building entrance.
Both front and back doors of every cabinet have a secure lock, preventing unauthorized access. When customers check in, our staff opens the specific cabinets requested; the cabinet doors self-lock when the customer has completed a visit to the data center.
Each cabinet allows for equipment up to 19 inches wide, and 74 inches high (42U). Some cabinets are extra-deep, allowing for longer servers now sold by some vendors. Every cabinet is seismically braced to meet and exceed the Universal Building Code (UBC). The cabinet pictured here is equipped with optional square-hole rails.
Each cabinet includes a 12-outlet vertical power strip, to preserve the full 42U rack space available in each cabinet. Some customers install optional horizontal power strips, or power management devices that can be remotely accessed over IP.
Our Telecommunications Room includes access and equipment from many different carriers, as well as some of our core routers, connecting to other facilities and transit options. We can also offer roof access for customers needing antennas.
Redundant industrial HVAC units (air conditioners) environmentally control the air temperature and relative humidity in the Colocation Facility. Cabinets are arranged in alternating hot and cold aisles, with cold air flowing from overhead ducts into the cold aisles, flowing through customer cabinets, and exhausting into the warm aisles.
Clean, conditioned power is delivered through Power Distribution Units (at least one for each row of cabinets). Each cabinet is individually breakered, so even if one customer has a power issue, other cabinets should not be affected.
Our PDUs are connected to Uninterruptible Power Supplies, which have enough battery power to keep systems running until our generator starts delivering power. Our systems undergo regular preventative maintenance.
Multiple generators automatically start when outside power is lost, and begin delivering full electric power to our facility within seconds. We have enough fuel on hand for several days of generator operation at full load, and contracts with local fuel suppliers to promptly replenish when necessary.
While visiting our data center, customers can use computer stations in a semi-private office, where we also provide cables to connect your own notebook computer to the internet. Free WiFi access is also provided in some locations in each facility.
Hurricane Electric provides free basic “Remote Hands” service, so customers aren't charged for asking our staff to check a server's status, attach a monitor and keyboard, restart a server, replace hot-swappable hard disk drives, or perform other routine tasks. Our trained technical staff can help you identify, diagnose, and resolve issues. For more complex issues, we offer professional services under contract.
“Colo Carts” provide convenient access to a keyboard, mouse, and monitor anywhere in the facility. Some customers call them “Crash Carts” , when asking our staff to connect to a non-responsive server, as part of our free basic Remote Hands service. Customers also use the Colo Carts when installing and maintaining equipment.
Our Fremont colocation facilities are staffed 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, 365 days per year. Our skilled staff is always available to assist you, whether in-person during your visit to our facility, or by phone or email.
There's plenty of open space remaining in our Fremont 2 Data Center, which we're building out in phases to meet customer demand. In this photo, you can see the last row of blue cabinets in our most recent build-out, Suite 1300.
