Our facility has many different moving parts that each play their own significant role in maintaining our system uptime, and these are all monitored on a continual basis. We’ve written a lot about how we monitor much of our internal equipment, but I want to speak to the policies we have in place for the regular physical inspection and maintenance of our equipment.

Physical inspections

We have an in-depth daily inspection procedure for all of our crucial equipment, and our facility as a whole. Every day our facility team performs a walk-through and site inspection,  surveying the following key equipment and areas of the facility:

  • Backup generators
  • UPS flywheel units
  • Suite PDU’s
  • CRAC units
  • Cooling towers
  • Entrance gates
  • Drainage areas, to ensure there are no signs of water buildup
  • Exterior office AC units, to ensure there are no signs of issues

Maintenance and testing

In addition to these daily physical equipment inspections, we also employ an extensive facility maintenance schedule for proactively monitoring when maintenance or testing on our supporting equipment needs to take place. When it comes to maintenance and testing, some things must take place on a weekly, monthly, semi-annual, or annual basis, and the system we have in place allows us to be fully proactive in keeping our facility up to par.

We place a huge deal of importance on monitoring and maintaining all of the critical equipment throughout our facility, and these policies play a key role in allowing us to meet those objectives. These policies are also a key contributor to the high levels of system uptime that we are able to offer to our clients. If you would like to learn more about how we monitor and maintain other parts of our facility and infrastructure, contact us today! We’d love to hear from you.
