Our Data Center — Reliable, Scalable, Fault Tolerant
Dakota Backup's data center was designed to be reliable, high-performance, scalable and fault tolerant. Our network backbone is built with Cisco equipment, the world leader in Internet network gear. Every part of the network — switches, routers and firewalls — has a redundant "stand-in" that instantly becomes operational in the event of a hardware failure. As a result, most network problems result in no lost data or connections.
Beyond our edge routers, our network is completely switched and centers around a redundant gigabit fiber backbone. Extra fiber is pre-wired to each row, allowing us to add new capacity quickly and meet additional bandwidth requirements as needed.
