123eHost Data Centers

Where reliability and performance are paramount
123eHost recognizes that downtime is not an option for your web site. For this reason, we invest heavily in hardware, facilities, and man-power to ensure that our clients are up and running on the web 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

We have several network centers at our disposal, across the United States and Canada:

– New Jersey
– Pennsylvania
– New York
– Quebec

Our servers are custom designed by our experienced in-house technicians, using only the latest top quality name brand parts. We also keep spare parts in our inventory, just in case the unexpected happens.

 Security

The data centers, where the servers are physically located, are literally isolated from access except from the network operators. This is enforced with passcards and hand scanners and is done to ensure the security of the servers.

Power Systems

Our servers are equipped with redundant UPS systems (Uninterruptable Power Supply). In the event of a long-term power outage, the on-site diesel generator kicks in. This is done to ensure that power is fed to the servers at all times, no matter what.

Environment

Our tidy data centers are equipped with redundant HVAC systems (Heating Ventilation Air Conditioning). They are also equipped with an advanced fire supression system. These systems are in place to ensure an ideal and dust free environment for the servers.

Connectivity and Bandwidth Providers

123eHost’ connectivity is provided by multiple, hand-picked Tier 1 carriers, and it offers multiple, redundant direct connections. This enables our traffic to bypass slower Internet service providers and take the shortest possible path between the GV data center and your users around the world. Our architecture features low latency, lightning-fast speeds and top-notch reliability that you will not find anywhere else. 123eHost will provide you with the tools, bandwidth and stability that you require for your mission-critical applications.
123eHost provides maximum speed and redundancy from premium bandwidth providers, including:
  • FiberNet
  • Cogent
  • Tiscali
  • Level 3
  • XO Communications
  • Zayo Enterprise Networks
  • Sidera Networks
  • AT&T
  • Inteliquent
  • Optimum Lightpath
  • Lightower Fiber Networks

Network Redundancy

From its redundant core, 123eHost supplies two diverse network connections from two separate core switches. While only one connection is used to route traffic, the second connection is a hot-standby circuit ready to route traffic in the event of a problem. The transfer to the hot-standby circuit happens instantly without any impact to the network or customers.

Network

Bandwidth & CPU Utilization

At 123eHost, there is no such thing as “peak” hours or spikes in traffic. There will always be excess bandwidth available. As for the servers themselves, only 1/7 of their capacity is actually used in order to ensure speed and optimal performance.
