Value Hosting Australia proudly hosts many business, organisation and personal websites on servers connected directly to the internet backbone via multiple fibre optic connections. This ensures that data reaches the end-user in the fastest and most efficient manner possible.

AUSTRALIAN DATA CENTRE

Our Australian based servers are housed in the TransACT Data Facility in Canberra, who provide carrier-grade secure data centre services.

In conjunction with our Australian and Overseas data centres, we have the capability to bring your website onto the net faster to Australian and international visitors with enhanced reliability, security and support.

Bandwidth

The features include:

* Fully redundant network.
* State of the art CISCO Routing and Switching.
* Multiple Gigabit network connectivity.
* Fully managed and scalable Cloud network.
* Extensive peering in all states.
* Direct interstate connectivity.
* Fibre link redundancy through to other tier-one providers.

Power

The Data Centre's facilities include the highest levels of redundant power. Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) is maintained with independent supplies to the grid, multiple backup generators and over 40 tonnes of battery power, plus a dual redundant air conditioning system to provide a reliable, 'always-on' hosting environment.

Security

Whether your business operates from a traditional shop front or from the virtual internet world, security and peace of mind remain a priority. Physical security measures are imperative to ensure your web site is up 24x7x365. These world-class facilities meet Australian Communications Electronic Security Instructions 33 (ACSI 33). They include an array of stringent firewalls and five physical security layers.

Servers

Each Dell PowerEdge 3.0GHz Xeon Dual Core server run on 64-bit CentOS Linux operating system, dual redundant hard drives, 16Gb RAM with plenty of software tweaks and performance boosting configurations.

Back-ups and Data Redundancy

We have a 2-tier backup solution to ensure data can be restored very quickly in emergency circumstances. Each server has RAID 1 data redundancy for real-time backup and restore functionality. Additional to this, each server is backed up offsite in real-time with incremental data backups. So even in the unlikely event both hard-drives in the server fail, we will still have a copy of your data!

OVERSEAS GLOBAL DATA CENTRE

Our overseas servers are housed at state-of-the-art data centres in Houston, Texas. The facilities offer 100,000 square feet of web hosting space and each features redundant UPS, generator backup and smoke detection/fire protection systems. Both locations are under 24/7 camera surveillance and armed guard patrol.

The Data Centre's facilities are connected to the Internet backbone through 14 Gigabit Ethernet links from six separate backbone providers all ensuring maximum speed and internet connectivity if your website has a global visitor target. This facility has been ranked as one of the world's largest dedicated web hosting service providers and we are proud to pass on such infrastructure to our clients.
