We have a long relationship with Datapipe. They are in our opinion the most professional dedicated server facility we've come across.
Data & Account Security
All paid subscription accounts are separate installations on the server. All accounts use 128 bit secure certificates (HTTPS). Accounts use independent Microsoft SQL databases and all staff have privacy & confidentiality contracts in place that protect your privacy.
Server access is restricted to ProActive Software's IP addresses and secured with strong authentication.
Details on Datapipe Security Certifications are available here.
All account information is backed up daily (offsite) with transactional backups every 2 hours (onsite) so you can be sure that in the very unlikely event of an issue at our data center, your information is recoverable from a secure location.
"Be reassured that your data is always safe and secure on our servers!"

The Secure Datapipe Datacenter
Datapipe's Chicago data-center is located in downtown Chicago. The 162,000 square-foot data center is one of Chicago's premier data centers. Datapipe's Chicago data center was designed to meet the security, interconnection and power requirements of the world's leading financial institutions.
The Chicago colocation facility also has direct access to 20 other carriers and service providers and Datapipe's Internet exchange, Any2. The data center location has been at the heart of Chicago's communications thoroughfare since 1919 when it was built by Western Union and significantly renovated in 1999 and 2007. As one of Chicago's most connected data centers, many carriers and service providers also can offer easy access to network with other POPs at 111 N. Canal and 350 Cermak.
The Chicago data center also has ample redundant AC and DC power, including the ability to cool the next generation hardware equipment used to support mission-critical trading applications.
Their team of certified technicians and 24x7 security staff will ensure the continuity and safe keeping of some of your company's most important assets.
