Built On Cisco, Juniper and Dell
Our network operates on industry-leading network equipment from Cisco Systems and Juniper Networks for optimum performance and reliability across the board. We automatically scan for attempted DDoS attacks on our networks, and greatly ameliorate the impact of any attack immediately.
We only use high-spec Dell servers in our UK data centres, so you can rest assured that your website is running on fast, high quality hardware from one of the world’s leading manufacturers.
Our UK servers have the following specifications:-
- Dual Quad Core Intel® Xeon® processors
- 32 GB RAM
- Dual SAS Drive (for the operating system)
- RAID Mirroring (for the operating system)
- Dual Power Supplies
- Quad Gigabit Network Adapters
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Platform
Red Hat is the leading provider of Linux open source software, for many years now Red Hat Linux has been the number one choice for web hosting companies. Not just because of Red Hat’s amazing scalability but also because of its track record as the most stable operating system available in the market today.
Our systems utilise the latest Red Hat server technology to allow our servers to be continually up to date with Red Hat system & security patches.
Unlike many of our competitors we run Red Hat Enterprise Linux, the most stable release of Red Hat Linux available and the only version that stays totally up to date with security patches.
We operate a redundant network, meaning that we have multiple multi-gigabit connections to the internet with different backbone providers. In the event that any connection fails, our other connections automatically take all the traffic, meaning that we’re highly unlikely to lose connectivity to the internet. We also benefit from Tier 1 connectivity for super-fast internet speeds at all times.
