Kroll Ontrack’s data center is wholly dedicated to discovery services; designed and maintained to meet the growing demands which face the industry. With capacity to mange greater than 20 petabytes, its secure data center relies on proven computing technology, including routers and switches from Cisco Systems and Extreme Networks; diverse and redundant Internet connections through Sprint, Time Warner and Onvoy; and, environmental monitoring by ADT Security Services to provide unparalleled data protection and disaster tolerant features.
“Our clients depend on rapid and secure access to their case documents and information,” said Tom Palladino, President of NightOwl Discovery. “Without this access, an attorney cannot adequately manage his or her cases effectively.

Highlights of the Data Center
Security: The data center is protected with 24-hour egress monitoring, extensive surveillance systems, dual biometric and personnel badge access, and dry fire suppression agents.
Climate Control: More than 60 monitoring points inside and outside the data center continuously gather information on the environmental health of the area.
Power: Two separate power grids provide fail-over capability if one grid is rendered inoperable. In addition, if both grids were to fail, an Uninterruptible Power Supply will automatically provide power to all equipment in the data center. The UPS would provide power until the additional generator comes online, which typically occurs in less than two minutes.
Internet Connectivity: All data traffic into the site is load balanced among the multiple application and Web servers to which clients connect.
