Texas Colocation Services by OnRamp Data Center Guarantee 100% Uptime for Companies Threatened by Disruptions to the Texas Power Grid
Austin, Texas July 03, 2012 Business News(PRLEAP.COM) Texas colocation services with a 100% uptime guarantee are being offered by OnRamp Access, an Austin, Texas data center. Many businesses cannot afford the potential loss of power projected by ERCOT, the Electric Reliability Council of Texas. Colocation services will be provided at OnRamp's state-of-the-art Texas data center which was designed with redundancy, reliability and security in mind, enabling it to withstand extensive power outages. These considerations allow OnRamp to offer Texas colocation customers a 100% uptime guarantee even as ERCOT, the grid operator for most of the state, anticipates potential electricity shortages within the coming decade as a result of the insufficiencies in power output and increased demand expected for the region in the next few years.
Missed revenue opportunities for businesses running e-commerce websites and major concerns for healthcare providers in need of accessing critical patient data in an emergency are some of the unfortunate and potentially dangerous results of server downtime in Texas. Colocation from OnRamp can prevent these issues. "Without an adequate supply of power, it is hard to guarantee the reliability of systems and accessibility of data maintained through an 'in-house' data storage operation," said OnRamp's Founder Chad Kissinger of the need for Texas colocation. "OnRamp boasts several advantages in the maintenance and delivery of power required for its client's racks, which provides assurance for its customers considering the future straining of the power grid expected from the region."
OnRamp offers reliable Texas colocation with enough backup power to keep the entire data center functioning in the event of temporary power loss and can keep its clients' systems completely stable by meeting both power infrastructure and cooling needs. The Texas data center also mitigates risks of power fluctuations, such as brownouts, with components like Uninterruptable Power Sources (UPSs) and Power Distribution Units (PDUs).
OnRamp is fed from a high priority power substation dedicated to serving the AMD Semiconductor factory, the VA Hospital, and the new Austin Energy control center. In addition to this advantage, the company's Texas colocation services are reliable because the data center operates at an (n+1) level of redundancy, meaning it provides a minimum of one additional critical mechanical component for each of its power, A/C, internet connectivity, network connections and various other systems.
OnRamp was founded in 1994 in Austin, Texas. Colocation is among several hosting solutions offered by the Texas data center, all backed by Full7Layer Support.
