Our Network and Infrastructure

More processing power, more RAM, extra bandwidth and extra space, secure.

Data Centre Servers

Our Network and Infrastructure -
Data Centre

In May 2014, we implemented a major upgrade and migration of our servers, as detailed in our news articles. This upgrade has provided us with more processing power, more RAM, extra bandwidth and extra space which has improved the load/response time and performance of all sites we host.

Our Virtual Infrastructure and network is built from the ground up to provide the highest quality, most reliable business services for our customers.

Our network leverages Cisco routers and switches for total dependency and performance, and features a redundant design to provide capacity in case of a failure in any part of our network, meaning that our client's sites are always protected against downtime.

Our Virtual Infrastructure operates on enterprise grade Intel servers, with dual Quad and Hex core processors.

Complete backups in the form of entire server snapshots are performed on a daily basis, and there are also separate daily account backups for WHM/cPanel servers. In the unlikely event of a host server failure, the system can be restarted very quickly (with an approximate downtime of 5 minutes) on another host.

We have a very tight SLA for connectivity uptime and provide 24x7 fault reporting and resolution. We take the utmost care with security.
