Hostway Infrastructure

Hostway’s network infrastructure provides unparalleled performance and reliability.

State-of-the-Art Data Centers

Our 6 North American data centers provide over 150,000 square feet of industry-leading server space. In addition, we maintain global connectivity through relationships between our branded and partner data centers. This provides the ability to connect with other regions of the world if required.

Hostway has built our mission critical data centers to provide world-class hosting for our customers. To ensure the fastest and most reliable routing of traffic, we have multiple connections to major Internet backbone carriers with OC-12 and Gigabit Ethernet connections using the BGP-4 routing protocol.

Hostway’s data centers are built with N+1 redundancy throughout, including multiple HVAC systems and redundant power. Every month, the backup diesel generators are tested to make sure they are in proper functioning order in case of power grid failure. The data center’s physical security is supported by  24/7×365 live monitoring, CCTV, and biometric access control system.

 

Network Services

Hostway’s Network Services leverage a global infrastructure footprint and extensive industry relationships to provide the very best services for online business.

Hostway deploys a set of proprietary systems that provide Traffic Engineering and Denial of Service Mitigation. This helps ensure that the available bandwidth is being utilized for delivering customer services to their targeted users. The network architecture in each data center is designed to eliminate any single point of failure across any segment utilized by our customers as well as eliminate any critical paths within customers’ dedicated environments.

In order to deliver high quality IP transit, we use multiple providers, including Level 3, to provide a robust high-speed pathway between our customer’s servers and their end users. In addition to private transit, we peer in several major markets with other providers in order to reduce latency and the problems associated with Long Fat Networks (LFN).

Hostway data centers are designed with high availability in mind. In addition to high availability power and cooling, we have diverse metro paths and entry points for our carriers. This helps eliminate a service outage due to a severed cable. Our team of expert engineers and programmers continuously work to identify ways to provide our customers with the most efficient and stable network architecture available.
