Ultra Reliable Data Center Design
SkyHelm data centers are designed to solve the unique challenges of critical infrastructure without compromising security or service.Our decentralized approach allows us to reach “five 9s” of reliability, or less than five minutes and fifteen seconds of down time a year, while still maintaining affordablity. In addition, our data centers are design to meet or exceed all NERC security standards. Critical data can’t be transmitted during a failure. In an environment where failures impact transmission of critical data, it’s paramount to plan for any event to ensure reliability, security and the flexibility to respond to changing circumstances in mind.
Reliability is foundational to the service electric cooperatives provide to their members, and it can’t be achieved without a well-built SCADA control system. We specialize in assessing what options result in the best connectivity, from cellular and satellite to microwave and hard-line connections. By combining options and building intelligent traffic routes, we engineer a reliable SCADA stream and control network.
The robust infrastructure built by our experienced system architects also increases electric infrastructure security. Though SCADA systems are notorious for being vulnerable to cyberthreats, our comprehensive engineering approach establishes appropriate security profiles for each network, augmenting the inherent security of a decentralized network. This enables electric cooperatives to keep the power grid online, safe, and efficient using a single, unified network fabric.
