FORTRUST’s High-Availability Service Delivery Model

High-Availability Service Delivery Model


In 2000, FORTRUST conducted an extensive site selection process with the goal of designing and constructing the best colocation facility in the nation.  We succeeded.   The site was purchased, and major construction and renovation commenced shortly after. FORTRUST’s structural, architectural and modular attributes were carefully considered in construction, and we designed our Colorado data center and colocation facility to ensure full risk mitigation and the elimination of potential disaster.

We have complete control over every aspect of our business, the benefits of which we pass along to you as your trusted partner.  We own the FORTRUST facility structure and property, and are able to control every aspect of design, construction, operations, services delivery, life cycle and maintenance, leaving you confident that your critical IT assets are safely managed forever.

Green Data Center

With over 5 percent of the WORLD’s power consumption utilized by data centers alone, FORTRUST is very mindful of our impact on the environment.  We are constantly devising ways through which we can increase efficiencies through business operations and design.  Our recent deployment of the BASELAYER Anywhere Data Modules is an example of just that.  Our deployment of this innovative technology has drastically decreased our data center PUE [PUE is Power Usage Effectiveness and is defined as the ratio between the total amount of power used by the data center to the amount of power that is delivered to equipment].  The BASELAYER Anywhere Data Modules have an individual module PUE of less than 1.2 and are available in all three of our locations.

FORTRUST also has an internal sustainability team that is constantly working to make improvements within the data center and community in order to pass along the benefits to our customers.  We employ a closed loop chilled water system to reduce water usage and  recycle all customer materials that are delivered on-site to further reduce our carbon  footprint.


FORTRUST has been in the industry for a long time. With our proven track record of success in risk mitigation and reliability, let our expertise guide you in your data center site selection. We understand that selecting a data center is a critical choice that can drastically impact your business.  There are criteria that we have recognized as important over the years, some of which you may have never even considered.  We have compiled our knowledge and findings into a white paper for you to download below.
