Data Center

The District maintains a centralized server center providing network connectivity, Internet services, file storage, telephone, video and data services. This server center is protected by Hunterdon Central's security staff, as well as monitored 24/7/365 by an outside alarm system. In addition, the server center has the following characteristics:

  • Power: This server center is supported by an enterprise-class uninterruptible power supply which provides battery backup for momentary losses of power. A diesel generator is also in place in case of an extended power failure. The generator can provide power indefinitely.
  • HVAC: The room is also kept at a constant temperature of 65 degrees Fahrenheit by dedicated rooftop air conditioning units. Backup units in a different section of the building can be re-routed in case of an emergency.
  • Backup of data: All data is stored on a Storage Array Network for maximum data protection and security. Nightly backups of all server information are made both locally to disks and a tape library system, as well as remotely to disks at an off-campus facility in Pennsylvania via dedicated fiber. A disaster recovery plan is in place for quick and efficient recovery.
  • Internet Access: Two 300 MB ethernet Internet connections provide robust access and are maintained through separate Internet service providers for backup in the case of an outage by either provider. Hunterdon Central's Internet uptime exceeds 99.9%.
