One of the most significant aspects in offering
a reliable, efficient set of hosting services
involves the choice of an appropriate datacenter.
But, providing truly stellar-quality
requires something special -- a datacenter that not
only provides the basics, but leads the industry in
quality. Following is a summary of how our datacenter
and premium-quality network meet our
clients' highest standards.
Each of our VPS, Dedicated and Colocation offerings are
based out of Sydney's impressive Global Switch datacenter.
Boasting security and technological advancement virtually
unparalleled in the Southern Hempishere, utilization of this
datacenter provides our clients with the reliability and
efficiency they deserve and expect from a premium-quality
hosting firm. Just a few specific benefits of this datacenter include:
Minimum N+1 Redundancy on Power Supplies
On-site diesel tanks (360kL) with full-capacity generator
fall-back in case of extended power failure.
State-of-the-art cooling system helps ensure hardware
stability. (Temperature in technical space consistently
maintained within two degrees of 22o
Sophisticated fire detection and suppression ensures
hardware integrity in the case of catastrophic hardware failure.
Turbo Servers' infrastructure in this facility is linked via
ultra-high speed, fibre connection, to our parent company's (
Net Logistics) Servers @ Equinix, promoting network
consistency and redundancy across our product line.
Premium bandwidth based on multiple peering arrangements,
ensuring consistent, speedy access to the wider internet.
Providing a high-quality hosting service of course
requires more than just high-end servers and
an exceptional datacenter -- network quality also
plays a major role in the "total hosting experience."
Following is a summary of some of they key features
of our Network Infrastructure, again demonstrating
exceptional quality and reliability:
Premium bandwidth is provided by Telstra,
Optus, MCI/Verizon, Powertel, and Pipe Networks,
empowering network redundancy, ensuring extremely
low domestic latency, and providing optimal international connectivity.
Each server is connected to the
network at 100 Mbps, ensuring bandwidth bursts are
available whenever required. All network wiring
is of the highest standard, with proprietary wiring
protocols and procedures developed by a professional
We use only the highest quality
network equipment; routing is accomplished using
industry-leading Cisco 7206 VXR routers, and Cisco
switches, with completely redundant Cisco router and
switch "spares" available for immediate installation
in the extremely unlikely event of a catastrophic network hardware
failure. Each router provides up to 2 Mpps (millions-of-packets-per-second) routing performance and include integrated multiservice interchange (MIX) functionality.
Network security is provided by
a combination of active system administration and proprietary
tools. Market-leading Cisco PIX Security Appliances/Firewalls,
available on a per-server basis to dedicated server and
colocation clients, deliver extensive user and application
