100% Dell Servers
The Data Centre
has all Dell servers in the web hosting platform. Utilising state-of-the-art technology
to build a web hosting platform that is second to none.
The configuration is designed for

and no email is lost.
Data Storage (separate from the Host
Servers themselves) is in duplicate, synchronised large-scale network disk arrays.

* 8 GB RAM
* Dual 136 GB SCSI Drive (for the operating system)
* RAID Mirroring (for the operating system)
* Dual Power Supplies
* Dual Gigabit Network Adapters
|| 100% Cisco Gigabit Network
The network operates on industry-leading 'Gigabit
Technology' equipment from Cisco. That's 1000 Mb per second
! - most web hosting networks are limited to 100 Mb per second.
It also has 100% CAT6 network wiring, fully utilised - giving more than twice the speed of

each with different backbone providers.
Hence, The Routers - really can Route - dynamically analysing performance
and choosing the fastest and most stable lines to use or spread the load
