The Solution Center is equipped with on site gas-powered backup generators and was built on top of a gas line, so the systems can run indefinitely without being dependent on the power grid. Whereas many datacenters may have a few imported backup generators, Equivalent DATA has harnessed an entire power system.


The Solution Center's infrastructure includes 60,000 feet of Cat-6 wire, 6000 feet of patch cable between patch panels and servers, redundant Cisco Catalyst 6509 switches, 40G Ether channels between switches, and bandwidth provided by multiple Internet carriers. A high-tech training center is available for attorney review, coding, and other client projects and events.
