We’ve been optimizing performance, containing costs and mitigating risks in data center environments since 1999.
Our data center operations teams maximize uptime while ensuring health and safety, security and compliance.
Honed over more than two decades of continuous innovation, our people and processes ensure optimal performance, cost containment and risk mitigation. So, despite the uncertainties of the world outside – environmental or human factor – Stream facilities remains safe, secure and compliant – and your services remain available. In 24+ years, we have never dropped a workload.
Health, Safety & Environment
A robust health, safety and environment (HSE) strategy saves lives. It also fosters a culture of responsibility that ensures facility performance. A proven leader in workplace safety, Stream is committed to safeguarding our employees, our customers and the communities in which we operate. We believe that safety is the entry point to building trust with our employees, contractors, clients, visitors and other stakeholders. We work diligently to maintain a strong culture of safety to ensure a work environment absent of recognized health and safety hazards.
From proactive security assessments to targeted measures addressing key threats, Stream tailors customer-specific security solutions to protect physical and intellectual property down to the cage level, always respecting budget constraints. Based on the industry-standard “concentric rings” methodology, our security approach leverages multiple layers of protection to deter, detect or delay threats.

Policy and procedure evaluation/development
Security system design
Security awareness training
Security vendor management
Penetration testing (physical and cyber)
We understand the challenges of data protection and maintenance and the fact that compliance failures can result in significant loss for our customers. That’s why we design facilities and train our teams to comply with rigorous standards set by trade groups and certifying organizations. And why we maintain relevant certifications and attestations including ISO/IEC 27001, SOC 2, SOC 1 and PCI DSS.
Operational Excellence Starts With People – And Ours Are the Best
Stream’s operations and engineering teams are the best in the business. We take great care to recruit talented professionals who share our values and we invest in our team to keep them on the leading edge of their profession. And while many of our competitors outsource operations, our ops teams are Stream employees. That way you retain control over – and transparency into – that huge driver of operational excellence.
Maintaining a Culture of Operational Excellence
Our robust training curriculum includes professional development and certifications along a defined career path. Stream seeks to improve employee skills and knowledge to minimize risks of disruption across our mission-critical facilities, but also to instill a culture of health and safety.
Human factors is part of ongoing training, to give employees a heightened awareness of the human factors that can create risks to operations or personal safety.
We understand the pressures of mission-critical operations and the value of 1:1 relationships with our team and our customers’ teams to mitigate risk in those environments.
We believe in whole-person recruiting, because while operations knowledge is important, attitude and behavior are often even more so.
We rigorously monitor and maintain critical environments, identifying potential disruptions before they happen. And when an issue does arise, our teams swiftly and precisely address the problem, reducing the risk of downtime and minimizing the effect on your operations. We work with you to optimize programs and put plans in place to save time and mitigate risk, with the most advanced critical environments practices in the industry.
In addition to people and processes, we leverage technology for more effective and efficient proactive maintenance. Over time, a computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) can help drive down the cost of maintenance, increase asset life, improve productivity, reduce downtime, and lower the total cost of ownership of assets.
