1. Data Center facility is Tier III compliant, developed as per Tier III standards with dual independent power distribution paths serving the IT equipment , All IT racks are dual-powered and concurrently maintainable.

2. Programmable & addressable Fire Detection System & Sophisticated Fire Suppression / Alarms:- Data center facilities provide protection from fire at a level most organizations would find difficult to achieve at an in-house data center. IBA data center has HSSD System as well as fire suppression system with Aerosol gas. Aerosol is specifically formulated for data center which has no impact on the environment and hardware they produce no residue and the ventilation system in the data center cleans the air and makes it harmless for humans.

3. Round the clock, Multilevel Security and 24x7 Video Surveillance:- Securing our assets is our topmost priority. Our Data Center premise is monitored round the clock, via a closed circuit video surveillance system (CCTV) system. A multi-tier access control system secures the data center space while access to the building is allowed via biometrics recognition system.

4. State-of-the-art Internet Security and Physical Security:- To secure data from malicious attacks and unexpected disasters, we have deployed a state-of-the-art firewall system, 24x7 monitoring, redundancies and backup.

5. 24-hour data center monitoring:- Our monitoring system enables us to proactively monitor the servers, systems and other equipment to avoid service downtime that could negatively impact business. We have installed ipatch intelligent patch panel which can identify network connectivity on patch panel level and can identify exact location of failure and also send out alerts for potential issues. Prompt attention is given to each situation and every effort is made to restore the services to normal within the duration, as specified in international standards.

6. Precision Air Conditioning System to maintain optimal temperature and humidity:- Our data center is equipped with Emerson Precision cooling and humidity control system which provides efficient, precise, reliable control of data center temperature, humidity and airflow for proper operation of critical equipment.

7. Server Virtualization:- IBA has deployed virtualization infrastructure powered by VMWare, which enables us to consolidate our physical hardware and IT infrastructure, eliminate server sprawl and centralize administration for greater operational efficiency. Our Virtualization expertise would help equip our client's organization with the ability to operate multiple server instances and also an independent IT environment in a single server.

8. Redundant Power Systems with back-up generators and UPS systems:- Data center is powered from redundant sources which are backed up by redundant 120 kVA Emerson UPS and generators. In addition to this we have we have dedicated 250 kVA generator for the data center which provides a third level of redundancy for the equipment.

9. Biometric Physical Security Controls:- Three factor authentication devices are install on facility for the physical security of the infrastructure.

10. Comprehensive Environmental Monitoring:- Our facility has comprehensive environmental monitoring system for temperature, power, water leaks , humidity, smoke, and room entry.
