We offer a variety of hosting solutions in line with client needs – from simple shared servers to a bespoke dedicated hosting infrastructure. From a site which receives a handful of daily visitors, to those receiving thousands or even millions each month, we have a hosting solution to suit you.
The cabinets housing our core routing equipment are distributed across multiple suites on different floors of Telehouse East giving us a highly resilient and secure connection to the internet backbone. Intuitive use BGP to advertise our IP addresses and to learn routes to the rest of the internet via our multiple transit connections and directly with other ISPs who are LINX members.
We have two separate Cisco routers within the core of the network, each having its own independent transit connections that allow them to guarantee connectivity totally autonomously in the event of failure of either router. In addition, each router has a connection to one of the two redundant LINX peering LANs. The routers are in turn connected to a pair of Cisco ASA firewalls which are configured as a failover pair in order to ensure availability and security of the network. Finally, the core of the network is completed by a pair of Cisco Catalyst Layer 3 switches which handle the internal routing of traffic between various VLANs therefore ensuring the security of customer traffic.
HSRP is used to present a single “floating” IP address as a gateway to each VLAN within the network, which will allow for the failure of either core switch. The cabinets used to host the server hardware which forms our hosting solutions are also distributed across two suites. Each rack contains a Cisco Catalyst access switch which is connected to both of the core Layer 3 switches using dual ethernet connections to allow for failure of a router, firewall or Layer 3 switch in any part of the core without any interruption to service.
The Telehouse cabinets offer full uninterruptable power supply and spike protection, and benefit from the comprehensive levels of physical security and disaster recovery maintained throughout the site.
In addition to our facility at Telehouse we have a secondary hosting facility in wholly owned premises in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire. This provides a secure and resilient service especially suitable for disaster recovery infrastructure and hosting of large bespoke solutions.
Finally, at our offices in Ickford we host our testing servers and real-time data backup for the other sites.
Since implementation in 1998, our network in London Telehouse has had 100% uptime.
