Our servers are connected to a national backbone that is ranked among the top in the nation.
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 fiber carriers for new routes, additional backup transit providers,
and updated peering relationships are always being added.
Our switched network utilizes 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 utilized is connected back to a core router via fiber.
We have 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 servers are located in a facility which 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 Center is monitored
and staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and was engineered with HVAC environmental
systems, digital surveillance, stringent security, conditioned uninterruptible power,
and your convenience in mind.
