WDC-01 meets strict federal security standards using vehicle arrest barriers, guarded entrances, biometric access controls, and video surveillance. In addition to being DOD, DCID, PCI DSS and SSAE 16 compliant, WDC-01 is also well prepared for businesses that require FISMA and ITIL certification.
Award-Winning Energy Efficiency
WDC-01 is optimized for performance and reliability, with block-redundant electric generation and an entire floor dedicated to additional power and cooling. Even with its exhaustive approach to power, the facility remains a landmark of energy efficiency.
WDC-01 has achieved a LEED Gold rating, as well as the 2009 Northern Virginia Technology Council Green Award for work toward carbon footprint abatement. The core features of this green building include a green roof alongside a greenscreen® exterior envelope to reduce wasted energy.
Currently, WDC-01 has a Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) rating of 1.3, translating to a 35% saving over most other data centers.
In turn, LeaseWeb USA can leverage these savings to offer hosting solutions in a state-of-the-art data center at competitive prices.
