Speed, Reliablity & Security
In all our products, we always focus on three core concepts: reliability to ensure your service never goes down, speed to make sure you get the smoothest experience and security to keep your data safe.
100% Green Hosting
Our datacenter uses 100% green hydroelectric power exclusively and an efficient DRUPS power system which eliminates the need for UPS batteries, reducing the chemical waste created by them.
We ❤ Open Source
We currently provide hosting for the world’s largest open source project, the Linux® kernel, and many other large open source projects. We’ve also contributed to several open source projects such as OpenStack®.
Secure Tier-3 Certified Datacenter
Our private datacenter space in Montreal has been developed in order to maintain the highest level of redundancy and efficiency for our customers. The requirements for a Tier 3 datacenter require us to maintain a high level of redundancy on different aspects such as power, cooling and telecommunications. In order to maintain the Tier 3 compliancy, we also have numerous security measures in place.
The datacenter features N+1 redundant power supported by seven (7) state-of-the-art rotary-powered UPS diesel generators totaling 16 megawatts and more than 4,000 tons of air conditioning and a fully redundant and diversified internal datacenter network capable of OC-192 (over 100 km of internal fiber optic cabling).
We also pay strong attention to security, sophisticated systems with CCTV video surveillance system supported by over three-hundred (300) cameras, controlled access supported by proximity access cards and 24x7 on-site security guards. Our advanced datacenter allows us to roll out the latest technologies as they are released. The large and sophisticated infrastructure allows for future growth while leaving a big overhead for large usage spikes.
Environmentally Friendly Green Hosting
Our datacenters leverage the latest green energy technology that helps reduce our footprint significantly. From using 95% hydroelectricity and the latest DRUPS systems that prevent using toxic UPS batteries, using our service will help leave a positive impact on earth.
Our data center is one of the greenest datacenters in North America. Our entire power supply is provided from Hydro-Quebec, which is the largest hydroelectricity producer in North America, with 95 percent of its production coming from hydroelectricity. This decreases the environmental footprint of our datacenters significantly.
We have replaced our UPS systems by a more advanced DRUPS system. A DRUPS comprises an electric motor, a fly-wheel and a diesel generator. Under normal operation the main power drives the fly-wheel and generator supplying the data centre. In the event of a main power failure, the kinetic energy in the fly-wheel keeps the system running while the diesel engine starts and then the generator takes over.
The main advantages of DRUPS equipment compared to battery-powered UPS combined with a diesel-generator are the higher overall system energy efficiency, smaller footprint, use of fewer components, longer technical lifetime (no use of power electronics) and the fact it does not result in chemical waste (no use of batteries).
Low Latency Premium Cisco® Network
Our Cisco powered network in our Montreal datacenter has one of the most sophisticated network infrastructures capable of handling any sized client. With any of our clients' requirements, we have the necessary infrastructure to support the requested Internet connection from our site.
We operate our own network and our own IP assignment from the ARIN (American Registry for Internet Numbers). We operate numerous BGP sessions that originate from our AS number (AS33028) to multiple premium network providers in order to provide the highest level of network redundancy. We also have our own allocated IP space which allows for high flexibility inside our network.
Cisco is the market's leader in networking equipment, they have an extremely well-known reputation for their reliable equipment. All of our networking hardware is powered by Cisco routers & switches. The level of redundancy available on our network allows us to sustain multiple & simultaneous network hardware failures, as well as connectivity losses. We operate our own network that utilizes BGP that can tolerate numerous provider failures.
You can be assured that by placing your server on our network, you will not see any high latency issues or downtime, and if you ever do, you can be assured that we're taking the necessary steps to mitigate and solve the problem before you know it.
