Maintaining 99.9% or Better Network Up-Time

Bandwidth Connections

We currently have multiple bandwidth providers that ride multiple fiber connections into the data center to terminate into our equipment. By utilizing multiple edge and distribution switches we are able to maintain 99.9% or better network up-time. We have recently upgraded the backbone of our network to utilize redundant fiber paths to all switches and replaced older equipment so we can provide IPv6 service to our customers. We keep spare replacement parts on site for all network equipment and we backup switch configs every night. New upgrades to the edge network allow for 10GB ports and larger IPv4 and IPv6 BGP tables from our providers. We utilize 10GB ports with all our providers.

Hurricane Electric is a global Internet service provider offering IPv4 and IPv6 Internet access and transit.

DDOS Protection

Security Suite

  • Stops your service from being affected by other customers getting DDOS attacks
  • Automatic notifications with sample traffic if your service is being DDOS attacked
  • Prevents large DDOS attacks from causing unwanted bandwidth overages
  • Automatically null-routes only the targeted IP upstream with our providers

NETWORK INFRASTRUCTURE

Equipment

  • Load balanced and redundant connections between switches and providers
  • Redundant management cards and power supplies in each switch
  • On-site replacement parts for all equipment
  • Gigabit ports to all customer machines
  • 10Gb network ports between our internal equipment

NETWORK RELIABILITY

Monitoring

  • We have off-site network ping tests and technicians get paged with the notifications.
  • Monitors on the wall of the NOC display live network statistics such as a live network weather map, graphs showing Mbps, PPS, Switch health, DC temperature monitors and more.
  • We have threshold monitoring for early alerts before a problem affects a service.

In assigning IPv4 and IPv6 address space, Joe’s Datacenter takes guidance from assignment policies and procedures set forth by ARIN (American Registry for Internet Numbers) Number Resource Policy Manual, RFC 2050, and RFC 3177.

In order to complete requests for additional addresses you will be required to provide the following information:

Current number of IP’s in use as well as purpose/use.
Requested number of IP’s as well as purpose/use.
Acknowledge that you understand the change will result in additional charges. We currently charge $1 per IP address on a monthly basis.

Here are some pricing examples:

Upgrading from an existing /29 (5 Usable) to a /28 (13 Usable) would be $8.00 /month and require giving back the existing range.

Adding an additional /29 (5 Usable) would be $8.00 /month
Adding an additional /28 (13 Usable) would be $16.00 /month

Internal Network Monitoring

We have off network ping tests and get paged with the notifications.
Audible Alerts to technicians inside the DC when problems occur.
Monitors on the walls showing live network statistics such as a live network weather map, graphs showing Mbps, PPS, Switch health, DC temperature monitors and more.
We also do thresholds monitoring for early alerting before a problem affects service.

Customer Monitoring

Customers have access to MRTG network graphs for each of their network ports.
Accounts can be setup to be notified before going over their allotted bandwidth amount as well.
