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
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 guarded, 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.
