About our Data Center
HCTC’s strives to continuously enhance, improve and maintain broadband and telecommunications services at the highest level. The Texas Hill Country continues to grow and the needs of our customers continue to evolve. At HCTC, we have embarked on a mission to make broadband available throughout our service area. We realize the importance of broadband availability and its direct contribution to rural economic development, education, healthcare and public safety. The future of telecommunications is unfolding, and HCTC is here to meet the ever-changing needs of our customers, today and into the future.
At HCTC, we recognize that your business relies on communications and information to be readily available at all times. Therefore, we have built a state-of-the-art data center with enhanced security features, backup power and diverse fiber routes for redundancy. We offer colocation space and power, data storage and virtual servers.
Locating customer equipment in our highly secured data center, conveniently located in Ingram, Texas, involves HCTC furnishing the rack space, electrical power and high-speed links to the Internet. Via a dedicated circuit, we can directly link to our customers’ main site for a Web, Email or Application server, or link to any other associated networking equipment. Colocation in HCTC’s data center eliminates the need for our customers to build individual, safe, secure facilities that provides power, air conditioning and a secure, clean environment for any company-owned equipment relevant for disaster recovery, business continuity or convenient teleworking purposes.
Any business or institution that is looking for disaster recovery, off-site storage of critical data, a data center of your own, or servers to run your software is the ideal candidate for HCTC’s Data Center Services.
The data center is secured with a fence, 24-hour camera surveillance, controlled entry via keycard and escorted access to the facility.
The building is fitted with lightning arresters to mitigate damage from lightning storms and constructed to withstand hurricane strength winds.
Back Up Power
A 250kW Cummins Diesel Powered Generator is at the heart of the backup power solution offered by HCTC. When the system recognizes a loss of commercial power, this generator is automatically started and power is transferred resulting in zero downtime.
The data center pods are equipped with computer controlled 10kW cooling systems with integrated monitoring. The system provides temperature monitoring and adapts its cooling output to rectify fluctuations in temperature.
The state-of-the-art fire suppression system utilizes FM-200, an advanced fire suppressing agent, which provides damage free recovery of the data center in the event of a fire. The system automatically senses when a fire starts, warns anyone inside with an alarm before it initiates the process of extinguishing the fire through chemical and physical mechanisms without effecting the available oxygen.
Data Center Pods
The data center is equipped with 14 APC NetShelter enclosures capable of fulfilling your requirements with 42RU and 20RU options. Our facility has 24/7 surveillance monitoring with APC StruxureWare software and NetBotz components.
