Our NetworkOur Network
No matter how important your Web site is, if nobody can connect to it, its useless. We are one of the very few companies to offer an 100% uptime guarantee! We believe it all comes down to the quality of the Infrastructure.
How can we do it?
Here's how: Our N.O.C. is strategically located in the same building as two of the major backbone providers (listed below) thereby giving us direct burstable OC-192 fiber connections and completely eliminating the telephone company! Industry analysis reveals that 70% of downtime over ten hours with any webhost/ISP is caused by telephone circuit failure! That's why using Performancehosting as your Internet Presence Provider is such a smart choice.
Performancehosting Internet makes sure your
Web site is up and running, all day, every
day. But it's not just reliable, it's blazing
fast. We deliver the fastest, most reliable
servers available anywhere.
SHARED Server Hardware
Our SHARED servers are custom built single and dual AMD Opteron/Athlon 2.0 GHz or Xeon/Pentium 2.0 GHZ and higher machines with a minimum 2 GIG of RAM. All machines are dual RAID (redundancy, in-case of HD failure) controlled hard drives. They are mounted in lock-down, tri-fan, dual power supply racks.
SHARED Server Operating Systems
Our shared server systems are running stable Linux operating systems. The operating system and many core components have been modified to support a fully robust shared server environment. Each server's OS has been modified in such a way that if a neighboring website suddenly consumes a large amount of system resources, your website services continue unaffected.
Redundant Internet Backbone Connections
Performancehosting's managed network delivers 100% availability, features optimal performance routing and offers the scalability to meet current and future bandwidth needs. If the link to one provider fails, it immediately transitions to another, a process completely transparent to the web site visitor.
Internet connectivity is provided by the following providers and the first two have direct fiber connections (completely bypassing the telco!):
Dallas, Texas (main Datacenter)
+ Time Warner
+ Global Crossing
+ Allegience Telecom
The same reliability found in our Internet connections can be found in our electrical systems. Installing a complex electrical infrastructure between the city transformers and the server farm, Performancehosting Internet's new data center ensures the inevitable spikes and power failures are filtered and compensated for long before they reach the web servers. When a lightning strike takes out the city transformer, uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) continue to provide clean power. If an extended city power outage is experienced, diesel powered generators take over. When city power returns, the system switches over smoothly, and the web site visitor continues accessing the servers and remains unaware of the transition.
The Bottom Line
When you purchase an account from Performancehosting, we're going to do everything in our power to make sure it stays online. And that's more than a promise - it's a commitment backed up by our philosophy, our plans, but most importantly, our actions.
