Tour Our Office and Data Facility
Our administrative offices are located in the same building as our data facility.
Canvas Dreams Data Facility
From our downtown Portland data facility at the Pittock building, Canvas Dreams provides comprehensive Web hosting and colocation services. Whether you need space for a single 1U rackmount server or a multi-cabinet infrastructure, our colocation and bandwidth offerings are competitively priced and custom designed for your exact specifications.
To ensure the security of all your hardware, Canvas Dreams offers on-site
support and personally monitors all maintenance performed on colocation equipment.
Cabinets and caged racks are secured through biometric checkpoints, multiple
keylock entry and 24/7 video surveillance. When a customer asks to perform
maintenance on their equipment, a member of our staff is always present to
personally ensure the integrity and security of all our clients' equipment.
Network Connectivity and Bandwidth Monitoring
From over two dozen available network upstream carriers, Canvas Dreams selected
what we considered the top four: AT&T (our primary connection), MCI, Sprint,
and Level3 (backup providers). We utilize enterprise-grade Cisco networking
equipment for all switches and routers.
We offer incremental, burstable bandwidth for all colocation clients, from 1Mbps Fast Ethernet up to multi-Gigabit fiber. For clients with specific bandwidth needs, we can set up dedicated cross connects from any of 29 fiber- or Ethernet-based carriers. Gigabit and peered cross-connects are also available upon request.
Bandwidth usage is measured via several monitoring tools and calculated to the 95th percentile. Our bandwidth pricing is structured to offer greater discounts on a tiered basis. The more bandwidth you use, the greater your per-Megabit savings.
Power Plant Specifications
In plain English, we have ample power for even the most demanding systems. Our data facility is supported by nine electrical feeds off the main Portland grid.
Details of the in-house power plant include:
- Primary Electrical Service: 15,000Amp/480VAC
- Secondary Electrical Service: 12,000Amp/208VAC
- UPS Units: Six 500kVA systems, two 225kVA systems, two 150kVA systems, one 80kVA system, and numerous smaller systems totaling about 3,000,000 Watts of capacity
- 1600 Amp/48VDC plant
- Cooling Capacity: 1300 tons
- Generators: 8.5 megawatts of generation capacity
Diesel Backup Power
Five 50,000 Watt Diesel backup generators ensure uninterrupted connectivity for up to 48 hours without refueling.
Because, critical municipal infrastructure is located within the facility, the building would benefit from being at the top of the list for refueling after a natural disaster. This means that should the facility experience an extended outage, the backup generators are guaranteed direct refueling before any other provider. No other data facility in Oregon has this type of energy security. If you don't believe us, just ask around.
