Dedicated/Co-located

The Brownrice Datacenter

Solar powered, natural-air cooled, easy on the earth,
and wicked fast.

Our fiber-cut-proof, triple-redundant network uses diverse physical paths to ensure zero downtime. Biometric, traditional, and IP security systems keep your servers safe. Our outside-air cooling systems allow us to cool it all without the use of air-conditioners nine months of the year. Our redundant generators and power-supplies keep power smooth no matter what. And our huge solar array powers everything during our 283 yearly sunny days.

Datacenter Features


Solar Powered
20kW Solar Array

At Brownrice we understand the importance of stepping up for the environment. And quite frankly it's a business no-brainer to invest in energy efficiency. At peak production our solar parking structue produces more power than all of our servers, cooling, and lighting use. See our solar production in real-time right here:


Air Cooled
Hot Aisle Containment and Outside Air Cooling.

Our outside-air cooling systems allow us to cool our datacenter without the use of air conditioners for nine months out of the year - which drastically reduces our electical usage. For those hotter months our hot-aisle systems contain and blow server-heated air outside so that our air conditioners have less work to do to keep things cool. See Brownrice cooling (on the left in image below) where we contain and expel server-heated air vs traditional datacenters that continually re-cool server-heated air (not efficient.)

Physically Redundant Network
BGP routing, redundant fiber, microwave backups.

The Brownrice network is triple-redundant. Our primary fiber connections peer in physically redundant locations; Albuquerque, NM and Denver, CO, providing extememly fast coast-to-coast speeds. Our backup connections are via a large-capacity microwave links which use the exact same technology that high speed financial traders use to beat the markets, which makes our network virtually unbreakable.

System Redundancy
Redundant generators, HVACs, and power supplies

We've built redundancy into all levels of our data center so that all equipment and networks have hot-swap and live failover capabilities or standby replacements are on site and immediately available to deploy.


On-Site Security
PCI and HIPAA Compliance

Our datacenter's physical security features locking racks, biometric entry security systems, video survelance with one-site and off-site video storage, traditional security systems, and IP based security and intrusion detection systems.


Hands-on Support
Smart and Friendly humans

Our on-site support staff builds servers, write code for web sites, optimize databases and configure networks. And we know what its like to be far from your servers so we're happy to lend as many hands as is needed, at any time.
