Client amenities have been thoughtfully integrated into the facility, featuring a dedicated client reception area, a colocation lounge designed to stage servers in a relaxed environment, and private dedicated warehouse storage space catered to various equipment storage needs. All rooms within the facility are interconnected via high speed fiber.

The data center has achieved the prestigious Tier IV Design Certification from the renowned Uptime Institute, signifying the highest level of certification attainable. To achieve the Tier IV standard of 99.995% uptime, dual distribution paths go to all racks and white space through A/B power sources by default, allowing for high-density racks of up to 10 KW per rack on demand. To ensure complete redundancy, five 1.2MW generators are operational, with one serving as a standby. Additionally, ten 800KW Uninterruptible Power Supplies provide fault tolerance, allowing any system or path failure without affecting critical loads. Hot and cold aisle containment is preinstalled in all data halls with racks and available for setup in all other white space, ensuring efficient cooling to support the designed power density.

The new HostDime facility also features A/B duality “meet me” and network rooms, eliminating single points of failure. These rooms will serve as entry points for fiber providers like Lumen, Media Commerce, Ufinet, Claro, BT, IMS, Cable & Wireless, GlobeNet, ETB, and Telefonica. This data center is one of the most interconnected buildings in Colombia, serving as a crucial interconnection point for transit and peering. HostDime leverages multiple transit providers to offer a highly redundant Layer 2 managed network blend, delivering exceptional connectivity to all clients within the facility.

Situated inside the Zona Franca de Tocancip√° industrial park, the facility benefits from enhanced security measures. The park’s entrance is staffed 24/7 by armed guards who conduct visual and physical inspections of all individuals entering the premises. Perimeter security is maintained by armed officers, K-9 units, and automobile patrols. The facility is equipped with comprehensive surveillance, including 360-degree security cameras that provide live monitoring of both the interior and exterior. Biometric and facial recognition technology ensures secure access for all staff and visitors. Man-trap doors are employed to control access to all floors, and in the event of a disaster, a fire suppression system with environmentally friendly HFC-125 clean agent gas is in place.
