The primary data center where the software resides is one of the only commercially available facilities that exceeds the Department of Defense (DoD) standards for a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF). Surrounded by an iron fence, the facility perimeter is equipped with pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) surveillance cameras and a 24-hour guard station to monitor access. Only pre-approved visitors are granted access during normal business hours and may access only common meeting space. All parking for visitors is restricted to areas outside the fenced perimeter and employee access to the data center requires Biometric authentication.

All power and data lines are encased in armored conduit. Specially designed Lampertz vaults protect servers, network cabling, power sources, and related hardware against fire, smoke, water, moisture, and electromagnetic pulses. Vault doors are secured with Biometric thumbprint readers and monitored by security cameras. Added security is achieved through a multiple-layer intrusion detection system consisting of custom firewall rule sets, private VLANs, and two layers of isolation.

The facility is designed so there is no single point of architecture failure. System operation is monitored 24x7x365 and includes N + N power redundancy, connectivity to multiple backbone providers, and variable switch load balancing. All new servers have hardened operating systems and are given vulnerability scans.

To ensure maximum uptime, the HVAC system maintains a consistent operating temperature and is powered by multiple 20-ton computer-room air conditioning units and three 100-ton chillers. Redundant power lines provide over 265 watts of power per square foot utilizing 2-megawatt transformers. In the event of a power outage, a 2-megawatt Caterpillar diesel generator provides full load in less than 10 seconds and can run for more than 24 hours without refueling. In the event of an emergency, time-guaranteed contracts with multiple diesel suppliers ensure uninterrupted service.

Data backups are performed daily and vary by machine category. The minimum standards for each type of machine are outlined below:

Licensee Dedicated Servers: Incremental every 15-minutes and full backups every 6 hours.

Production Environment Servers: Incremental every 3-minutes and full backups every 6 hours.

All backup sets are cloned, which has the effect of producing two independent copies of archived data.

To reduce the risk of data corruption, we have servers provisioned as warm stand-by machines to which data is synchronized via various methods including log shipping. Depending on the type of data and specific machines, the warm stand-by environment is no more than 5-minutes behind for time sensitive data. Other data/machines may be as much as 24 hours behind as another fail safe in the event data is corrupted at the 5-minute behind environment. So in essence, we have production, then an environment where data is 5-minutes behind, then another that's 24-hours behind. In addition to all of the above, a full back up is performed nightly at our primary facility as well as at our secondary off-site facility.
