“Root” of our facility
All cabinets are protected by individual locks. Cages and PODs with custom, private security mechanisms are available for added protection.

Gateway into the secured zone
Dual credentials security access, biometrics iris scanning technology, full-height turnstiles, and HID access cards protect the data center from unauthorized access.

Building Exterior

Facility security
All ROOT data centers have 24/7 security, with a minimum of two security personnel present at all times. Our humble exterior and modest location provide the perfect camouflage for added IT security.

FIRE SUPPRESSION

Physical Protection
• Smoke and fire detector all over the facility.
• Dry pipe, double interlock, pre-action fire suppression. Premium wall construction materials and Type X gypsun board to enhanced fire rating.
• 24/7 remotely monitored.
• Very Early Smoke Detection Apparatus (VESDA).

Operational Protection

RISK MITIGATION AND DISASTER RECOVERY

Our two facilities are located on separate power grids; approximately 30km apart from each other,
which provides for a full disaster recovery deployment in the Montreal area if required.
