Our server is connected to a national backbone that is ranked among the top in the world.
With dual OC3 (155Mbps) connections to several major exchange points, (including MAE-West in San Jose, CA; PAIX in Palo Alto, CA; AADS in Chicago, IL; NYIIX in New York, NY; and MAE-East in Vienna, VA) forming rings around the nation.
The self-healing network architecture virtually eliminates a single point of failure. In addition to the backbone, in place is a backup transit from multiple providers in multiple locations to ensure that data will arrive via the shortest possible route. Because of the backup transit and the many international peers, the network maintains the shortest routes for sending data all over the world. On an ongoing basis, negotiations take place with the top fibre carriers for new routes, additional backup transit providers, and updated peering relationships are always being added.
The switched network utilises the Border Gateway Protocol Version 4 (BGP4) over Cisco 12000 series GSR routers. With the latest updates on the router's IOS after it has been stress tested the latest IOS on a non-critical router, to make sure it is very stable. The Cisco Catalyst switch utilised is connected back to a core router via fibre.
Our NOC has one of the friendliest peering policies in the industry. Peering with any network that is connected to one or more of the exchange points that we have in common is something that is consistently being updated.
Our peering arrangements include the following exchanges and are ever-growing so do check back for the latest updates here:
MAE-West in San Jose (100Mbps FDDI,155Mbps OC3 ATM)
MAE-East (100Mbps FDDI,155Mbps OC3 ATM)
AADS in Chicago
PAIX(Palo Alto Internet Exchange) in Palo Alto
(1000Mbps Gigabit Ethernet)
NYIIX (New York Internet Exchange) in New York (100Mbps Fast Ethernet)
MAE-East in Vienna
Pac Bell (155Mbps OC3 ATM)
AADS (Ameritech) (155Mbps OC3 ATM)
The entire network is fully switched and utilises the Border Gateway Protocol Version 4 (BGP4) over Cisco 12000 series GSR routers. This ensures that bandwidth can be routed through the best available carrier giving you seamless connectivity at the same time. The router's IOS is always updated after stress testing the latest IOS on a non-critical router, to make sure it is very stable. The switch that our server is ultimately connected to is connected back to a core router via fibre.
The Co-location Facility was designed from the ground up to serve data housing needs. Raised floors, individually locked cabinets, advanced climate control and back-up power, custom designed video surveillance of every cabinet, and onsite security measures assure that servers are safe and run optimally. The Data Centre is guarded, monitored, and staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and was engineered with HVAC environmental syste, digital surveillance, stringent security, conditioned uninterruptible power, and your convenience in mind.
