DICE Adds 6 International Data Centers to Expand Global Footprint
In addition to serving clients overseas, the new data centers allow DICE to process web page applications locally and closest to its growing alarm dealer base in North America.
BAY CITY, Mich. — DICE Corp. announces it has increased its global footprint by adding six data centers outside the U.S. and Canada that are actively used to serve its growing interactive video and alarm monitoring clients overseas
The new data centers also allow DICE to process web page applications locally and closest to its growing alarm dealer base in North America.
The six data centers are supporting markets in Latin America, Europe, Asia and expanded footprints in North America.
Over the next few years, the company is expected to increase to 15 data centers in regions close to its expanding client base.
DICE has two UL 827A active data centers in North America for geographical redundancy and in different geographical zones to meet UL & ULC standards.
For additional redundancy, the data centers are powered by two different power companies, in addition to two generators at each center. As active data centers, DICE runs load-balanced signals at both sites in the U.S. with multiple ISP feeds from various carriers.
“Having the additional data centers allows us to provide not only Cloud services for those who do not want receivers on their site, but also backup and disaster recovery services, all on a global basis. DICE has been expanding in the past few months its carrier contracts outside the USA, which allows us to do full-service hosting in other areas.” says DICE Corp. President and CEO Cliff Dice. “This gives our clients a worry-free, cost savings and future-proof solution.”
DICE also recently deployed a fully working global network that is said to allow each of its UL/ULC and global data centers to receive same IP packet data at all centers allowing active/active diversification without typical legacy BGP failover that most alarm centers use.
This gives DICE an advantage going forward in switching clients between centers automatically and even load balance processing recourses across all data centers, according to the company.
