Being a small, independent hosting provider we offer Personal Management of your sites and services. We manage the power, network, hardware, software, databases and ensuring the speed of your sites is outstanding. We monitor network performance, website performance and security. All performed with the personal service you expect.
Your services are monitored each and every minute, should an issue arise the engineers looking after your services will investigate and repair – most times without your knowing anything was wrong. If you site is not responding as fast as it should an engineer will investigate and remedy.
We take the performance of your websites very seriously and you can rest assured your sites will be much faster and more available than ever before. Working closely with your developers we deliver fast, optimised websites that help improve customer satisfaction, together with higher conversions.
The HP ProLiant DL360 Gen9 Server delivers a 1U chassis with two processors, delivering an optimal unit that combines high-performance, low energy consumption, improved uptime, and increased density. Leveraging Intel’s latest Xeon Scalable processors.
The powerful new Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors offers versatility across diverse workloads. These processors are designed for next-generation data centers. Supercharged for efficiency, performance, and agile services delivery across all applications. They offer high-performance computing, networking, and storage.
We use redundant Intel SSD DC P4600 cards in each server. With PCIe Gen3 support and NVMe queueing interface, the cards deliver excellent sequential read performance of up to 3.2GB/s and sequential write speeds of up to 2.1GB/s. The P4600 delivers very high random read IOPS of up to 617,500 and random writes IOPS of up to 225000 for 4KB operations.
Core routing is performed by Juniper MX960’s configured in a fully redundant pair with dual power supplies. Internet connectivity is provided by NTT, GTT, Level 3 and Virgin Media. We peer with LINX, LONAP and AMS-IX. Customers know their sites are always available and are always performing at their very best.
Each server is connected to physically separate switches using channel bonding. This means redundant Gigabit Ethernet ports on the server connect to a “stack” of 2 switches that act like one. Should a switch fail connectivity will continue uninterupted. Each switch stack is connected to our core network via redundant 10G connections.
All hardware is hosted in Gyron Centro. Centro is based on a modular design concept, where power, air-conditioning, and communications equipment are flexibly expandable and the level of redundancy can be independently set for each server room.
EFFICIENT HIGH-DENSITY SOLUTIONS
The data centre is designed to provide a highly efficient cooling system that enables a customer to use up to 20kW per rack without any modifications to the cooling design or special placement of racks realising an industry-leading PUE of 1.2.
FULLY REDUNDANT AND RELIABLE FACILITIES
Centro is designed and built to Uptime Institute Tier IV standards delivering redundant and resilient solutions to ensure maximum uptime for critical IT infrastructure
Every server employs dual APC master switches, eradicating issues such as unauthorized use of power outlets, locked-up equipment, in-rush current, overloaded circuits and the need for remote access to power outlets. These address these problems through individual outlet control, power on and off delays, current monitoring, alarm thresholds, and network management, ensuring consistent power without downtime or compromise.
Core routing is performed by a series of Juniper MX960 routers configured in a fully redundant pair with dual power supplies. All services are connected to the network at 40Gbps through four upstream providers (NTT, GTT, Level 3 and Virgin Media) provided by Gyron Internet Ltd.
Our network uses Cisco Catalyst 3850 switches. These switches provide exceptional performance and reliability for high-performance servers and workstations. Exceptional reliability and serviceability are delivered through the use of hot-swappable power supplies and hot-swappable fan tray with redundant fans.
Our self-defending network is built around adaptive security. Alarms are generated based on user-defined thresholds to alert users of potential circuit overloads and the system monitors network activity and application traffic to provide proactive threat mitigation to stop attacks before they spread.
