We’ve Finished Our Migration to the Atlanta NAP Facility
Posted on 27 Oct 2008 by
You probably don’t geek out about server technology the way we do, but we’d like to let you know a bit about our hosting environment so you can feel a bit more secure at night knowing your site(s) are being hosting in a good place with good equipment.
We’ve recently migrated much of our business to a colocation facility at Atlanta NAP. The caged facility in Atlanta, Georgia will house over 1,000 servers. There are motion detecting IP cameras throughout for maximum security as well as a ten foot razor fence. HSRP drops throughout provide redundant internet connections should one fail and a redundant paralleled power system ensures the facility will not suffer outages. Like other servers already used by WebHostingBuzz, the servers at the AtlantaNAP location will have 8 CPU Intel Xeon processors and 8 GB of RAM for increased performance, and are cooled by Atlanta NAP’s N+1 cooling towers and redundant N+1 pumps. To further improve performance, this facility also sits directly on one of Atlanta’s main fiber backbones and is part of a metro ethernet ring based on Extreme Networks 10 gig technology.
Here are the specs of the servers:
Supermicro dual xeon 5410, with a total of 8 CPUS at 2.33ghz
8gb ECC RAM
RAID5 1 terabyte hard drives
If you aren’t a hardware geek, no worries, these are very capable servers and we look forward to the performance boost we can offer our customers.
