- Data Centers -
Telesystem's second data center (DC-2) is located in Southeast Michigan, over 25 airline miles from DC-1. DC-2 augments our current Data Center facilities with approximately twice as much space. DC-2, like a bunker, was built to Department of Defense standards for data centers.
The 8,150 square foot building sits on five acres and is protected on three sides by earthen mounds. Built to period-relevant Department of Defense building specifications, DC-2 is designed for resiliency and unparalleled protection.
It is also geographically separated from DC-1 to mitigate potential disruption. DC-2 is designed to operate independently or in unison with DC-1. All services available in DC-1 are also available in DC-2 providing unequaled availability and reliability.
