Infrastructure

BQT uses world-class infrastructure to deliver fast, efficient and secure cloud services. All of our technology partners are leaders in their sector and specialty.

BQT eWorld Platform runs on a SAS 70 Type II Certified datacenter. The Statement on Auditing Standards (SAS) No. 70, Service Organizations, is an internationally recognized auditing standard developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). A SAS 70 audit recognizes that a datacenter has had an in-depth audit of its control activities conducted by an independent third-party auditor that includes a thorough review of all its controls over information technology and related processes.

Power Supply
Our datacenter has a complete power management system, including backup generators, in the unlikely event that normal power supplies fail. Auxiliary power maintains servers and well as security services, ventilation, air conditioning, monitoring and light.
No single point of failure
We have taken every possible step in the design and management of our system to ensure full redundancy and no single point of failure. High availability and business continuity are one of our primary concerns.
Network
Our network speed and capacity eliminate bandwidth traffic jams and roadblocks to assure high volume, and instantaneous response. By using multiple Tier 1 telecom providers and direct Internet connections, we bypass transit networks and shorten the network path to deliver our online services. The result is lower latency, maximum speed and unsurpassed reliability. Parallel, Redundant, Multi-Tiered Network Architecture We have taken special care in building one of the best network routing and switching infrastructures in the industry. Designed without single points of failure, our network operates at full redundancy across multiple layers that contain redundant core routers, core distribution switches and carrier diversity.
Monitoring
We monitor our datacenter and cloud services 24x7x365 to ensure business continuity and early warning in order to conduct preventative actions when required. Monitoring is conducted from multiple locations at the same time.
Backup
All data are backed up to tape at each data center, on a rotating schedule of incremental and full backups. The backups are cloned over secure links to a secure tape archive. Tapes are not transported offsite and are securely destroyed when retired.
Disaster Recovery
BQT conducts near real-time data replication between the production data center and the disaster recovery center. Data are transmitted across encrypted links. Disaster recovery tests verify our projected recovery times and the integrity of the customer and business partner data.
Environmental & Fire Controls
Our datacenter has humidity and temperature control, redundant (N+1) cooling systems and fire detection & suppression mechanisms.
