State Of The Art Website Hosting Technology Infrastructure

State-of-the-art technology based on industry leading platforms

As a leading UK, Web Hosting provider, by only Utilising state-of-the-art technology, you will benefit from a web hosting platform, second to none and based on the highly successful, Dell Servers.

 

The platform is designed in such a way, if any server fails, another server, automatically, and without delay, takes over the Server's workload. For example, if one of the Mail Servers breaks down, another server automatically comes online with the correct configuration and takes over the work of the failed server. During this period no email is lost.

 

Together with this, all data is stored in two large network disk arrays. Data is automatically synchronised between arrays, so that, in the event of an array failing, the remaining array continues to serve data to the servers with no downtime.

100% Cisco Gigabit Network

The Hosting Network, operates on industry-leading network equipment from Cisco Systems. All switches and routers are developed by Cisco and based on gigabit technology, running on speeds of 1000 Mb per second. Compare this to most Web Hosting Networks, typically, limited to 100 Mb per second.

 

The network also utilises 100% CAT6 network cable, containing four pairs of copper wire and, unlike CAT5, utilises 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, Redhat Linux has been number one choice for Web Hosting companies. This is not just because of it's amazing scalability, but is also due to it's track record as the most stable operating system available in the market today.

 

All systems utilise the latest Redhat server technology, allowing Servers to be continually up to date with Redhat system & security patches.

Unlike many other Web Hosting suppliers, Redhat Enterprise Linux is used in all Servers. It is also the most stable release of Redhat Linux available and the only version that keeps completely up to date with security patches.

 

Windows Server 2008

We use Microsoft Windows Server 2008 to power our Windows shared hosting platform.

Microsoft Windows Server 2008 is the most advanced Windows Server operating system yet, designed to power the next generation of networks, applications, and Web services. With Windows Server 2008 you can develop, deliver, and manage rich user experiences and applications, provide a highly secure network infrastructure, and increase technological efficiency and value within your organization.

 

Connectivity

A multi-homed network utilising BGP4 technology is operated. Simply put, this includes multiple connections to the Internet with different backbone providers. Should any connection fail, other connections, automatically, take all the traffic. Not only does this mean it is highly, unlikely, connectivity to the Internet will ever be lost, but it also means, traffic moving to and from the network can choose from a range of paths to get to its final destination. This means, the network is always configured to take the fastest paths.
