Cutting edge technology puts you in front of the competition.
100% Dell Servers
We use only Dell servers in our web hosting platform, utilising state-of-the-art technology we have built a web hosting platform that is second to none.
Our platform is designed in such a way that if any server fails another server automatically and without delay takes over that servers workload. For example if one of our mail servers were to break down, another server would automatically come online, with all the correct configuration and take over the work of the failed server. In this period no email would be lost.
As well as this, all data is stored in two large network disk arrays, data is automatically synchronised between the arrays so that in the event of an array failing the remaining array continues to serve data to the servers with no downtime.
Web Hosting Infrastructure
The following diagram represents the web hosting infrastructure.
Our current server specification is:-
100% Cisco Gigabit Network
The network operates on industry leading network equipment from Cisco Systems, all the switches and routers are developed by Cisco. The network is based on gigabit technology which means that it runs at a speed of 1000 Mb per second, most web hosting networks are limited to 100 Mb per second.
The network also utilise's 100% CAT6 network cable, CAT6 cable contains four pairs of copper wire and unlike CAT5, utilise's all four pairs. CAT6 supports Gigabit (1000 Mbps) Ethernet and supports communications at more than twice the speed of CAT5e, the other popular standard for Gigabit Ethernet cabling
Redhat Enterprise Linux Platform
Redhat is the leading provider of Linux open source software, for many years now Redhat Linux has been the number one choice for web hosting companies. Not just because of Redhats amazing scalability but also because of its track record as the most stable operating system available in the market today.
The systems utilise the latest Redhat server technology to allow the servers to be continually up to date with Redhat system & security patches.
Unlike many competitors we use Redhat Enterprise Linux, the most stable release of Redhat Linux available and the only version that stays totally up to date with security patches.
Operating a multi-homed network utilising BGP4 technology, simply put, multiple connections to the Internet with different backbone providers, should any connection fail the other connections automatically take all the traffic. Not only does this mean that we are very unlikely to lose connectivity to the Internet but it also means that traffic moving to and from our network can choose from a range of paths to get to its final destination, this means that the network to always take the fastest paths.
This is why we can GUARANTEE you 100% uptime.
