IT Security

Safe Location

Calgary, Canada is an ideal location for our primary data center because of the absence of natural disasters and the close proximity to peering points for Europe and the U.S. Additionally, being geographically located on the Calgary metro power grid with multiple carrier fiber running right outside the front door makes DataHive's Calgary data center the perfect location for your mission-critical data.

IT Security

Physical Security

The data centre is physically isolated from everyone but DataHive's technicians. The data centre is not open to the public. Only a handful of highly trained DataHive technicians will be allowed within close physical proximity of your server. Customer access to the data centre is restricted by biometric scanners. The data centre is under 24/7 video surveillance and the whole facility is monitored.

IT Security


All Network Operation Centers use industry-standard Simple Network Management Protocol and provide round-the-clock monitoring of routers, switches, UPS systems and servers. The Network Operation Centers also monitor power, environmental factors, generator status, and network connectivity. All critical services/ports are monitored, including FTP, HTTP, SMTP, HTTPS, SSH and POP3.

A Precision Environment

DataHive's data centre is meticulously tidy. All air is circulated and filtered every 45 seconds to remove dust and contaminants. Liebert environment control systems ensure the data centre is kept at a constant temperature. The data center's Liebert HVAC (Heating Ventilation Air Conditioning) system is N+1 redundant to ensure that even in the event of an entire HVAC system failure there is a backup system on standby to take over. These systems regulate both room temperature and humidity to ensure a cool, static-free environment. We maintain 20 degrees Celsius with 25% humidity all year round.

Fire Detection and Suppression

An advanced fire-suppression system is in place to prevent any fire from spreading - in the unlikely event that one could start. The temperature, humidity and airflow in the data centre are under constant monitoring.

The DataHive Data Centre is Carrier Neutral

DataHive is a carrier-neutral facility. Our carrier-neutral facilities allow customers to choose the circuit provider that they feel best suit their connectivity requirements.
