High Speed Web Server High Speed Web Server

Apache (httpd.apache.org) has been the most popular web server on the Internet since April of 1996. The January 2006 Netcraft Web Server Survey (news.netcraft.com/archives/2006/01/05/january_2006_web_server_survey.html) found that 69.97% of the web sites on the Internet are using Apache, thus making it more widely used than all other web servers combined. The superior performance of apache is also one of our most important key points in delivering reliable solutions to mission critical websites.

High Speed and High Security Operating System High Speed and High Security Operating System

All of our servers are running Redhat Enterprise Linux, a Linux distribution produced by Red Hat (www.redhat.com) and targeted toward commercial and enterprise systems. It is specifically designed to handle multi-tasking, or many users running multiple programs, all at the same time. You will therefore find it normal for a Redhat Enterprise Linux server to run seamlessly for months without a hitch. Unlike many other types of Linux available out there, Redhat Linux Enterprise is a version which is stable, supported by vendor and certified.

For more information about Redhat Linux Enterprise, please go to http://www.redhat.com/rhel/

We use specifically chosen hardware that will support high quality intel processors. Great care is taken to make sure that the supporting components, for example mainboards, memory and storage devices, are 100% compatible, and support the operating systems and applications for which they are intended.

Chipsets, Transfer Rates, Error Correction, Compatibility and Performance are all factors when our in-house hardware selection team design a package. Every attempt is made to utilise the dynamic nature of the computer hardware industry by selecting only those components that will provide an economical and technically superior upgrade path for your server.

 
RAID Protected Hard Drive RAID Protected Hard Drive

ALL our servers are RAID protected! This means all your data is simultaneously written on two hard drives. In the event of a hard disk failure, the server will continue to run without interruptions by using the mirrored hard drive. Your visitors won't even realize that the server suffered a hard disk failure! Within minutes the failed hard drive can be replaced and mirrored again. In short, our RAID protected web space offers significantly increased speed, redundancy and uptime for your website!
