Our Data Center has Tier 1 bandwidth providers, SBC
and Allegiance, built on a Cisco powered network. We guarantee 99.9%
uptime and will provide you credit for any downtime experienced due
to our network.
Cisco Powered Network
All our servers are connected to a 100% Cisco Powered Network. Using
enterprise-class Cisco networking gear, all routers, layer-2 switches,
and layer-3 switches are tested in labs prior to deployment to ensure
stability and interoperability.
Redundant High Bandwidth Connectivity
Using multiple Tier 1 Service Providers, our server leads the discount
dedicated hosting industry with our 99.9% uptime guarantee, ensuring
the highest degree of security against network downtime and the fastest
possible data transfers.
It is a common misconception that the amounts of bandwidth (size of
the pipes that carry the data) differentiate web hosting companies.
In reality it is not only the size of the pipes that matters, it is
the utilization levels. The utilization of our Internet connections
is vital to a network's ability to transfer data without packet loss
or latency. Our Server aims to keep all connection usage below 50% to
avoid any connectivity problems.
Our server runs the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP4) for best case routing.
The BGP4 protocol is a standard that allows for the routing of packets
of information sent out from our network. Each packet of information
is evaluated and sent over the best route possible. Because of our redundant
network architecture, packets may be sent via alternative routes even
if they are being delivered to the same end user. Should one of our
providers fail, packets leaving our network are automatically redirected
through another route via a different provider.
Our servers network is a fully switched network. Traffic destined for
a website hosted on a server is sent only through switching equipment
necessary to deliver the information to that server. This minimizes
the risk of someone sniffing or capturing traffic being sent across
the network. Furthermore, our data center vigorously prosecutes persons
who generate malicious attacks on our internal network.
Our data centers, located in San Antonio, Texas and
northern Virginia, have been built from the ground up to provide powerful
connections to our carriers to ensure that we meet our 99.9% uptime
Our facilities are carrier-neutral sites and are built completely on
computer-grade raised flooring; it is built for dedicated server hosting
with redundant fibre entry points.
Regulated Climate Control
The data centers' HVAC (Heating Ventilation Air Conditioning) systems
are N+1 redundant. With full particle filtering and humidity control,
the environment are maintained at a cool 68 degrees to ensure a comfortable
environment for your server.
Our data center is not reliant upon the local power grid to guarantee
maximum uptime. Our on-site, auto-switched power generator, and centralized
UPS systems provide power conditioning and ensure uninterrupted data
center operation. Additionally, the generators are regularly tested
to ensure that it will continue to function in the event of an emergency
Our data centers are physically isolated from everyone but level three
technicians. Public access is strictly forbidden. Access to the floor
the datacenter resides on is restricted and completely locked down.
San Antonio, Texas is known for the absence of natural disasters and
is on the most seismically stable soil in the US. Additionally, since
San Antonio is free from natural disasters, our data center is in the
perfect location for your dedicated server.
Our northern Virginia data center serves as a backup
for our primary data center in San Antonio. It was designed with the
growth goals of our data center in mind.
