WILLIAMSTOWN, N.J. — COPS Monitoring has teamed up with Zumasys, a solutions provider for disaster recovery, server virtualization and centralized storage, to deploy its fourth and fifth automation system mainframes.
The mainframes will be located in Las Vegas in a data center called the SuperNAP (network access provider). The additional servers will supplement the company’s three redundant mainframes located in their New Jersey headquarters.
Described as an energy efficient, high-density, ultra-scale data center, the SuperNAP is a 407,000-square-foot computing facility made of steel reinforced concrete, protected by armed guards, accessible via multiple communications providers, and backed up by five custom-built power generators. The center houses servers and storage systems owned by many prominent companies.
“In addition to the ability to monitor our dealers’ alarms from any of our strategically located central stations, we can also process signals from our mainframes located at the SuperNAP,” says Jim McMullen, president and COO, COPS Monitoring. “The great thing is that all of our dealers, regardless of size, benefit from our mission to be the most consistent and reliable service provider in the industry.”
