ServerVault officials said they will have the first commercial data center built to Defense Department standards when their high-security facility in Dulles, Va., goes online August 28.

'We're trying to make it a no-brainer for government clients to outsource to something that's truly secure,' said Patrick J. Sweeney II, president and chief executive officer.

The facility was built to withstand blasts and electromagnetic radiation. Three-fourths of the technical staff have a top-secret or higher security clearance, Sweeney said.

Under ServerVault's managed services model, the company owns the servers and leases them to customers, providing secure connections. Servers run Microsoft Windows NT, Windows 2000, SunSoft Solaris and Red Hat Linux from Red Hat Inc. of Durham, N.C. ServerVault has its own patent-pending network intrusion detection system and load-balancing technology.

Pricing for data center services and support ranges from $329 to $1,399 per month for NT platforms, $225 to $2,999 per month for Solaris and $349 to $849 for Linux.
