Our backup vault servers are Dell PowerEdge Servers, powered by
performance Quad Core Xeon processors. Our servers are
built with performance, reliability and durability in mind.
Each backup server uses Windows 2003 Server technology as the
operating system. Each servers consists of dual power
supplies, multiple-fed network cards, hardware raid controllers
for disk mirroring onsite.
To compliment our disk mirroring on-site, we replicate all our
data offsite to another data centre in Cable & Wireless in Clonshaugh Dublin 17.
Our offsite data backup network comprises of
multiple optical fibre links routed to various destinations
throughout Europe and the US, peering with Tier 1 Internet
providers. Our Network is carrier neutral and provides multiple
choices from diverse fibre providers allowing redundant fibre
connections out to the Internet. Fibre from these diverse
vendors is routed via diverse physical paths into the Hosting
Facility. This eliminates any single point of failure between
our network and the Internet. Our Network was designed from the
ground up with the primary goal of providing 100% availability
of the Internet to your equipment. This goal is obtained through
multi-homing and BGP-4.
We provide 4 layers of redundancy.
