Core™ i7 Servers
Our servers run Intel Core™ i7 processors with 32 GB of RAM and RAID
protected hard drives providing the power, versatility, and reliability
required for high end servers. The combination provides outstanding
performance and headroom for peak workloads, resulting in faster
RAID is short for Redundant Array of Independent Disks and used to
mirror data on two disk drives simultaneously to ensure data integrity.
Disk mirroring protects from loss of data by instantly switching to the
other disk with no interruption in service if one of the disk drives
fail without requiring data restoration from a backup.
RAID also provides twice the read rate of a single disk to increase
performance. When multiple requests are made for the same data, demand
can be distributed between two disks therefore decreasing response time
for data access.
Linux Operating System
We exclusively use the Red Hat Linux (Enterprise/Fedora) and CentOS
operating system on our servers. Linux is one of the most popular server
operating systems in the industry today due to it’s scalability and
track record as the most stable operating system on the market. It is
constantly under active development which insures a reliable, secure,
and robust platform for web hosting environments.
Windows Operating System
We also use Windows Server 2003 on our servers.
