Backbone Data Vault’s Vancouver data center is set within a 10,000 square foot custom facility, including of 3,000 square feet of server cabinet space, electrical distribution, cooling, and backup UPS and diesel generator systems. The facility is located near the Olympic Village, on the southeast side of False Creek, adjacent to the Vancouver downtown core.
The innovative design of our facility was conceived with rigorous security and structural integrity in mind. The building – and specifically the datacenter itself – is a cement bunker, including a 12” thick seismic sheer wall spanning its core. It is reinforced with multiple layers of physical protection such as multiple mantraps, proximity key‐card access requiring pass codes, and German made “Emka” combination locks for each cabinet.
