Data Center Locations

To ensure the best geographical redundancy, DFS Malawi has chosen the following data center locations.


Data Center Partners

Data Center Infrastructure

Tier 3 and Tier 4 data centers are selected in different geographical areas. One data center is located far away from another in a completely different region. This makes us serve you even if any data center is down because of any reason such as a natural disaster. Also, these data centers can withstand any extreme weather condition or extreme power outage.

  • Raised Flooring
  • Cooling Redundancy using multiple HVAC systems
  • Power Redundancy using multiple Power Paths (containing UPS Systems and Generators)
  • Periodic Power Failure and Cooling Failure Tests
  • Advanced Fire Suppression System

Multi-layered Redundancy

Name any redundancy that you have heard of and we have that in data centers. Each data center delivers multiple paths to every information request. If any disk containing the requisite data fails, its another copy stored at the same or other location will serve the purpose. In fact, the entire data of one center is replicated to another regularly. Multiple Internet connections from the leading Internet Service Providers make network facilities redundant.

We always have numerous hot-swappable hardware components (like cables, fans, disk drives, and others), and 24×7 available on-site staff to replace faulty components in time and to remain hardware redundant.

  • Geographical Redundancy
  • Disk Redundancy
  • Network Redundancy
  • Hardware Redundancy
  • Hot Swappable Drives and Components
  • Power Redundancy
  • Cooling System (HVAC) Redundancy

Data Center Security

In SSAE-16 certified Tier 3 and Tier 4 data centers, we focus on physical security, server security, and data security. Data center facilities are being guarded with 24×7 CCTV surveillance, on-site security staff, and controlled access. Servers are being protected with antivirus, both software- and hardware-based Firewalls, and real-time Intrusion Detection and Prevention Systems. A twin-layer security strategy has been deployed for data security. At first layer, our clients can decide who can access their data and how.

We also provide dedicated and password-protected VPN-based programs for data access, without which no access can be made. On-demand IP-based restrictions can also be applied to ban/allow the data access from specific IP Addresses. On another layer, a Proper System Authorization at the backend has been made to let only authorized personnel deal with the hosted data (that too when it is really needed).

  • 24×7 CCTV Surveillance
  • On-site Security Staff
  • Badges and Logging for On-site Staff
  • Access Card and Biometrics based Access Control Systems
  • On-demand 2-factor Authentication to access hosted data and applications
  • Encrypted Passwords for storage and transmission
  • Automated Intrusion Detection and Prevention Systems
  • Vulnerability Scanning
  • Data Loss Prevention Policies
  • SSL Certificates to secure the data transmission

Scheduled Preventive Maintenance Plans

Preventive maintenance plans are scheduled and carried out in a systematic way to ensure the maximum uptime and the lowest failure of components. During their execution, services are not interrupted because of redundant infrastructure. As per least changes policy, only necessary changes are made that too when a maintenance plan or a client requires them.

  • Least Changes Policy
  • Uninterrupted and Phased Maintenance Plans
  • Preventive steps are taken in advance

Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity

Redundancies adopted for geography, power, cooling, network, hardware, and disk eliminate any chances of downtime and deliver an SLA guaranteed uptime of at least 99.995%. Industry-standard Disaster Recovery mechanisms are also put in place. With their blend, we can revert entire systems to the normal working condition in case of any disaster. Regular Business Continuity Tests are also conducted to see how everything will work during the hours of need.

  • Data Replication between differently located Data Centers
  • N+1 or better design in all parts of the data center and Cloud Infrastructure
  • 99.995% Server Uptime Guarantee
  • Regular Tests to ensure no failure
