About Us

We specialize in reliable, enterprise-grade Dedicated and Virtual servers. Unmetered bandwidth connects our high performance servers to meet the demands of growing businesses located around the world.

We believe in keeping business critical processes in-house. Alnitech operates its own hardware and technical support departments to deliver stable, high-end services. We keep third parties out of the decision making process to deliver the high standards of service we are known for.

Our primary and backup servers are located at the SAS 70 Type II certified datacenter in Immedion and the high-availability Continuum datacenter. They are designed to provide fully redundant hosting facilities for mission-critical services.

Immedion facility

Fire Suppression

VESDA – Very Early Smoke Detection Apparatus provides the earliest possible warning of potential fire event by detecting smoke particles at the incipient stage of fire. This allows onsite technicians to respond to the incident and extinguish the fire before it can spread and cause damage.

A state of the art Multi-Stage sprinkler system is activated by smoke detectors that trigger the building alarm. Sprinkler heads release water to the isolated area only when a specific localized temperature threshold is met.

Security

Armed guards secure the datacenter building 24/7/365. Additionally, over 30 cameras monitor all the entrances and every inch of the datacenter floor. Video data is digitally stored offsite for at least 90 days.

Mechanical Summary

  • RTU DX Cooling Systems: 9
  • Redundancy: N+1
  • Humidity Control: Yes
  • Design Temp [F]: 68 +/- 2
  • Floor Level  Water Detection: Yes
Continuum facility

The 21,000 square foot Continuum datacenter has been engineered for Operational Sustainability with redundant power and cooling components to deliver 99.999% uptime. It is secure, reliable, protected and right in the Midwest. Continuum runs their own premium blended network with multiple providers including Internap (Tiscali, UUNET, Savvis, XO, Cogent, ATT, Global Crossing, Sprint) and Hurricane Electric.

The data center uses AboveNet’s high-bandwidth fiber transport to 350 E. Cermak, one of the world’s largest carrier hotels. From Continuum’s point of presence at 350 E. Cermak, you have access to any major carrier of your choice.
