Data Center

Data Center.

Mac Pro Vault is a colocation service offered by CyberLynk based outside Milwaukee, Wisconsin just north of Chicago. Cyberlynk owns and operates its own data centers and has been in business since 1995. We start out with the best technology which we skillfully engineer and implement, and we combine it with our excellent customer service to offer stable services at an unbeatable value. Colocation is a low cost method of hosting equipment where the customer owns and manages the server hardware, and the data center handles the network, power, and security. We specially engineered Mac Pro colocation cabinets based on our standard 48U data center cabinets.

Our design allows for efficient hosting of up to 48 Mac Pros per cabinet. The Mac Pros sit within specially designed chassis allowing for organization while also sliding to provide easy access for hands-on support. The slots in the chassis are cataloged by specific location. Each slot is assigned a static IPv4 /29 network, an IPv6 /64 network, a user-controllable power outlet, and a 100Mpbs or 1Gbps network switch port (optional secondary port available). Additional IPv4 addresses are available at an additional cost. All network traffic is graphed and viewable in our customer portal.

We offer a full range of data center and hosting services. Because we own and operate our own data centers, we have the flexibility to best meet customers demands. Below are some photos of our facility.

Fiber and Bandwidth

Our colocation facility is equipped with reliable upstream internet access by way of redundant fiber paths connected to diverse, industry-leading bandwidth providers. These high-capacity fiber connections are combined with efficient BGP routing equipment powered by Cisco to ensure unrivaled performance and availability. It is this world-class fiber optic network that enables us to offer bandwidth capacity at the most competitive prices. We are the first and only Mac Pro colocation service to offer native IPv6 service.

Our internal fiber backbone consists of 10Gbps connectivity between our edge and core network layers. The edge and core network layers are built using Cisco 6500 series switches. Each Mac Pro Vault cabinet has 20Gbps of connectivity with multiple paths to our core network layer.

Security

There are many factors that go into choosing a colocation facility, and security is among the factors that cannot be overlooked. We have developed a comprehensive security framework that covers both the interior and exterior of our facility. The Milwaukee datacenter has experienced personnel onsite, in addition to advanced electronic systems that help control access to the building. We utilize the full power of the CyberLynk family to include products and services from our sister companies, some of which specialize in the security industry. Physical access is completely controlled by RFID and monitored by IP security cameras.

Location

An ideal location just 25 minutes from Downtown Milwaukee and 40 minutes from the Illinois border makes our colocation facility the perfect place to host your IT infrastructure. The Milwaukee datacenter is conveniently situated away from hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes and other natural disasters, in a low-crime area in close proximity to major freeways and intersections. Milwaukee has a long tradition and history of being hard working city. Many industries were born and found their success in Milwaukee. We are proud to call it home.
