A new building with operational compartmentalisation
Marilyn is a new concrete building constructed specifically to be a datacenter. Several construction principles were implemented. First of all, all resources are compartmentalized according to function. Consequently, the site comprises premises dedicated for high- and low-voltage equipment, physical safety, monitoring, etc., In addition, each floor is itself compartmentalized and the area is organized into hot and cold aisles.
The risks are therefore limited to specific areas, which are easier to identify and safeguard.
On the other hand, the free-cooling method involves facilitated air circulation. This is made possible by separations between floors using duckboard, meaning the raised ceilings of traditional datacenters – which are often dangerous – are a thing of the past.
Advanced monitoring to manage your infrastructure
The datacenter is monitored 24/7 with human presence onsite, but also by two on-call teams: for the network and also for operation of the datacenter itself.
Furthermore, you are provided with monitoring resources for your connections and server cabinets:
- Real-time monitoring 24/7 via your client access
- A Report and Alert option via email and SMS 24/7
