The advantages of hosting with us are -among others- the following:
Peace of Mind and Technical Knowledge: We know our servers from the inside out. We spend most of our days connected and working on these machines so we know exactly how are they performing and we are on top of the issues that may arise. You get the peace of mind of having at least two layers of constant monitoring: amphionommunications and the technical personnel at the Data Center. We have developed and currently host hundreds of sites and know very well how to get things accomplished and what to expect when developing.
Even though you may ba able to host the site built by us with another provider, any support and or research on our end to provide functionality or to fix issues arising after the site is launched will be billed to you at our tech support rate of $100.00/hr This cost would be otherwise free when hosting with us.
The Datacenter & network has been designed to accommodate clients demanding the highest quality performance. There is a central focus on redundancy allowing the network to rapidly self-heal failures without interruptions to connectivity.
Tier-1 Premium Bandwidth:
Providing the highest quality Internet connectivity and performance is top priority. Premium Tier-1 dark fiber bandwidth providers have been selected, ensuring minimal latency and fast connections to all points of the global internet. The DataCenter features direct connectivity with MCI, AT&T, Savvis and Level3, including a full OC-48 (2.48Gbps) with Level3. The aggregate connectivity reaches an astounding 4,500+ networks just a single network away from the DataCenter uplinks with a total IP capacity to 5 Gbps.
Security On Site:
Datacenter access is strictly limited to technical staff. Electronic security systems control access and are accompanied by a full compliment of motion detecting security cameras which monitor the entire facility. The DataCenter facility external walls are reinforced poured concrete and is a fully managed facility, which means we have level 3 technicians on site 24 hours per day, allowing incident response times to be kept to a minimum.
Power systems feature extensive fault tolerance and resilience at every layer. Incoming service is routed underground to a dedicated on-site transformer. This system routes to the automatic transfer switch which monitors power quality, and automatically transfers to the emergency generators in the event they are needed. The Data Center is also protected by one or more Uninteruptible Power Supplies (UPS), featuring redundant battery cabinets and full maintenance bypass cabinets allowing for service and upgrades without interruption of power to the servers.
Liebert Precision power distribution units handle final power transformation and distribution to the racks, ensuring clean consistent power to the data center equipment.
The Data Center has multiple emergency generators waiting on standby, featuring over 24 hours of autonomous runtime before requiring refueling. Each generator is test run at least once a week to ensure they are ready in the event they are needed.
Generator power is activated automatically in the event of a utility failure by the transfer switch. The data center load is maintained by the UPS units with at least 15 minutes of capacity, however this is not necessary as the generator is active and up to speed within 10 seconds of a power failure.
Environmental processing systems include redundant Liebert Precision 22 ton up flow air conditioning units. Temperature and humidity are precisely regulated year round to ensure optimal equipment reliability. Each unit contains independent compressors and cooling loops to further enhance fault tolerance and reliability. Air filtration systems actively remove foreign particules from circulation and cycle the entire data center air supply in a matter of minutes.
