Our 100% fiber optic network is completely fault-tolerant and redundant. Through the design and implementation of our network, we offer the reliability, performance, and scalability required to maintain 100% uptime. Route Optimization through BGP4 (Border Gate Protocol) technology allows the traffic to your site to travel more efficiently by finding the best route for data to travel. On a typical server the traffic always takes the same route from client to server. BGP protocol repeatedly locates the most efficient route and carrier between client and server. All customer colocation and dedicated servers are provided exclusively at Equinix Datacenters. (www.equinix.com) Security includes 5 layers of biometric palm scanners to enter and leave the facility, over 600 video cameras with 30 day digital recording, along with kevlar floors and walls. Our primary datacenter in Chicago, IL offers N+1 Redundant UPS Systems backed up by 6 250 kW Onan/Cummins diesel generators with 36 hours of fuel. Redundant fiber optic cross-connects to diverse routers ensure 100% uptime.
