Cherokee Nation Technologies supports client outsourcing, cloud computing and disaster recovery needs through a pair of linked, high-performance data centers.
CNT currently operates data centers located in the HUBZone of Catoosa, OK (a suburb of Tulsa) and in the HUBZone of West Siloam Springs, OK (approximately 70 miles east of Catoosa).
Each 3,000 square foot facility is Tier II / III rated facilities by the classification criteria of the Uptime Institute™. The data centers are connected to one another through a dedicated, secure circuit so that each center serves as the failover site for the other. For clients, all of this means their systems and data are highly secure and highly available.
CNT’s data centers feature redundant and conditioned electrical power with backup generators, redundant HVAC and climate control, and an advanced fire suppression system.
The technology infrastrucutre is comprised of Dell R710 servers, SonicWall firewalls, VMware ESX enterprise-level virtualization, and dedicated 10 Mbps (burstable) connectivity from Cox Communications. CNT also utilizes NexSan Storage, Dell PowerVaults, and Cisco VoIP phone systems in its network infrastructure.
These data centers are staffed 24x7x365 with operational support agents and on-site or on-call analysts and adminsitrators. Physical security is preserved through key-card access to buildings and data centers, closed-circuit cameras, and armed security guards.
