First Layer of The Internet Delivery Stack – The Physical Environment

Posted 5.12.05 by

What’s important about your servers’ physical environment?

At the bottom of the Internet Delivery Stack is your server’s physical environment. For some, this might be the a closet in the office suite, the server sitting on the carpet floor. For others it might be in a high secure facility 10 floors off the ground. Critical factors about the environment are it’s physical security; protection from fire or water; humidity and temperature.

For each of these there are both preventative and reactive systems. For example our data center’s biometric thumb print reader prevents unauthorized access while our video cameras don’t. The cameras help us react better.
