BigScoots Datacenter
Premium approach to hosting High-end servers, stellar support and management all housed inside enterprise grade data centers. Isn't the trifecta grand?

BigScoots operates out of a state of the art Steadfast data center located centrally in downtown Chicago, IL. The data center was constructed offering fully redundant N +1 power, HVAC, network connectivity and security. The facilities sit atop multiple power grids with full UPS battery backup power, diesel (serious) generators on site and a network that is supplied by several separate premium network providers - Level(3), NTT, Tinet and nLayer allowing for optimal speeds and reliability. Further, dozens more third party backbone providers are available in the facility such as Verizon, Global Crossing, Abovenet, Qwest, XO Communication, Sprint and Cognet.

Additionally the fiber provided to the Chicago data center is provided over fully redundant paths, with diverse entry points and building risers. These facilities have been built to meet the high demands and reliability requirements of telecommunications providers and Fortune 500 companies, and have achieved SAS70 and SSAE16 compliance audits.

Numbers Speak For Themselves
As a nearly brand new data center opening during the mid-2010 year in downtown Chicago, it was constructed with some of the most advanced technologies and high quality systems available. The datacenter has N+1 redundancy (optimized for single corded equipment) and Starline busway which allow us to offer services at an extremely high value and with the highest levels of flexibility, specifically designed to facilitate redundancy and performance. While still being cognizant of price, the construction took great care to be as energy efficient as possible with air and water side economizers, variable speed fans, and variable valves to keep overall operating costs down. The result? 0 packet loss, 100% network up time and a steady load across the charts - The proof is in the pudding!
