Full Redundancy

All our equipment has a second, independent piece of equipment as a backup. We even use two independent power grids, allowing us to have an A and B side of our data center supported by internal power sources. If the A side falters, the B side can fully take over. This method is how we offer the best service in our region.

Around-The-Clock Support

If you have an issue or question, our team is on call 24/7. Whether it’s tech support or 2:00 a.m. maintenance, we’re always ready to help.

Constant Protection

Physical security is one of the top risks to your data outside of a data center. We’ve equipped the data center at TenHats with industry standard fire, flood, and theft protection security systems.

HIPAA & SOC 2 Security

Because we specialize in healthcare and finance, everyone, from our security guards to our CEO, complies with HIPAA and SOC guidelines.

10,000-foot Purpose-Built Location

Many data centers are built in repurposed buildings. Instead, we built our data center from the ground up. We scrutinized every detail to create the best infrastructure possible.

24x7 Armed Guards

No one can enter our data center or offices without first passing our security team. TenHats’ armed guards monitor the campus at all times to ensure your infrastructure stays safe.

Not All Data Centers Are Equal

In a basic sense, a data center is a physical facility housing essential hardware components for digital storage. Yet as technology grows exponentially, many companies find that their in-house systems can’t keep pace. Perhaps they can’t generate enough power or afford to install new connectivity. Many commercial facilities are actually retrofitted warehouses that aren’t equipped to maintain uptime in the face of a natural disaster, system overload, or cybersecurity incident.

TenHats is a purpose-built data center in Knoxville, Tennessee. We designed our facility with full redundancy and multiple sources of power. Our 24/7 security and on-site technical support give you maximum reliability and uninterrupted operations, even during power outages.

Modern data centers are designed with virtualized computing resources with advanced infrastructure and cooling systems to ensure efficient daily operations. A power outage is the most common reason for a data center to go offline. We take extraordinary measures to prevent overheating electrical components and overloading circuits, all while providing sufficient bandwidth for scalable, flexible solutions.

Data centers are globally rated according to a tier classification system developed by the advisory organization Uptime Institute. A Tier III center has full power redundancy and does not require a shutdown for equipment maintenance. TenHats exceeds these high standards to ensure seamless and reliable operations for your business.

Reasons To Switch Data Centers

If you own or operate a business, you may find that your current data storage solution meets most of your needs, but not all. Whether it’s on-premises or in the cloud, your current setup may become insufficient as your business scales and requires more customization. Here are four of the most common reasons business leaders seek an upgraded data center.

Switching to data centers can improve costs by: 

  • Leveraging more efficient infrastructure 
  • Reducing energy consumption 
  • Optimizing resource allocation 

Newer data centers often employ advanced technologies and designs that enhance performance and lower operational expenses. Additionally, relocating to a region with lower electricity costs or tax incentives can further reduce expenses. 

Overall, the strategic move to a new data center can lead to significant cost savings while maintaining or improving service quality.

Many businesses look into colocation to overcome latency and increase response times across their internal operations or to better serve customers in different regions. Outdated hardware can prevent network improvements and create challenges when customizing your virtual cloud environment. Performance issues can also come from the wiring and cooling systems in the data center. Even if your data servers are brand new, they need sufficient power and cooling to operate efficiently.

It’s no secret that cyberthreats are more common each year. Both small businesses and large enterprises often choose to outsource cybersecurity to specialist teams trained in incident prevention, detection, and response. TenHats offers not only on-site cybersecurity experts but also round-the-clock physical security. We follow data center security best practices to protect both your digital assets and your physical hardware.

Many industries, especially finance and healthcare, have strict regulatory and privacy requirements that public cloud storage simply cannot accommodate. TenHats is HIPAA and SOC 2 compliant, and we’ll work with you to create a private or hybrid cloud environment that secures personal information and prevents unauthorized data sharing or access.
