About our facilities Posted on Sep 22, 2015
At the core of Gotham Web Services is our network and facilities. Located in Chelsea, Manhattan in a neighborhood known as New York’s Silicon Alley, our Tier III datacenter is located in a building that has become one of the mort important network hubs in North America. Any important global carrier will want to have a presence here.
So what does this mean for you from a network standpoint when you are hosted with Gotham Web Services? Well for first you are just a hop a way from the worlds most important global networks thanks to Gotham’s use of Level 3 Communications and Telia Sonera.
Imagine that your data has to go to London or Frankfurt, thanks to our outstanding network your data will be in London n just two hops!
Just as important as an outstanding network, a world class facility is even more important. Our Tier III facility has fully redundant connections to the most important Carrier Hotels in New York City.
Security is paramount at Gotham’s datacenter with multiple levels of security prior to reaching the colo space. First you have to get past building security, once you have cleared this point you head to the elevator. Now make sure you have a key card else the elevator will not stop at the datacenter! Once you reach the datacenter floor you have yet another level of security with the ManTrap. The purpose of this is to avoid tailgating. Of course without a key card the ManTrap won’t open. Now you have reached the datacenter lobby but it’s not over yet. Even though you have your key card, you must still sign in and someone will escort you to the colocation suite where your keycard will allow you access to the colocation suite. Yes it sounds like a lot of layers but security is not taken lightly.
