Network Connections and Data Centers
We use a variety of network providers and data centers to maintain goals of 100 percent up time. The data centers we choose use Cisco and Juniper routers. Parts of data centers network are geared to specialized services like IRC, virtual servers, shared hosting, custom websites, UNIX/bash shells, and dedicated resources.
This custom layout planning can help us provide better security for all of our customers. But it also allows us with more flexibility and scalability to meet demands of our growing and changing customers needs.
There are many network backbones at all of the data centers we use. Some of the major network backbones are Level3, Time Warner, Cognet, Global Crossings, and ATT to name a few. This allows us also to provide our customers best routing to any other connection on the internet or if one link goes down there will still always be a backup to make sure our customers can stay online.
As many know bandwidth availability can also play an important role in delivering a good performing network. All network connections are gigabit plus connections as well too. And are monitored by the data centers staff 24/7 by well trained network engineers. Please feel free to ping us or click on this link to down a test file.
Last but not least security. Things like denial of service attacks are bound to happen and we are prepared. At the data center they use the latest technology from Cisco and other companies to detect attacks. And are trained in how to deal with them by routing traffic away during the attack or anything else.
Thanks you for taking the time to learn more about what we do with our network. And God Bless, comments always welcome too.
