Network & System Architecture
PCG Hosting is a facility-based provider of Internet outsourcing services. PCG Hosting's USA network is part of a global backbone, high performance network architecture with industry-leading public and private peering arrangements. The allied strengths of PCG Hosting's network and server infrastructure are fundamental to delivering the outstanding levels of performance and service to PCG Hosting's customers and yours, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The network is connected directly to the Internet via 3Com SuperStack switches, Cisco 7000 series routers, and T3 DSU/CSUs (Data Service Unit/Channel Service Units). PCG Hosting runs BGP4 protocol in order to peer with several ISPs. During failure events with one ISP, network traffic is not affected as alternate router paths are taken. This allows for greater availability of applications. These routers are continually active and will automatically redistribute our traffic load upon failure events, resulting in a minimal downtime for the client's application.
Network circuits are provisioned on separate local loop carriers fiber optics (Qwest, MCI, AT&T and Verizon) who use the latest SONET and FDDI technology for the highest level of availability. We have two physically diverse entrance facilities to our Network Operations Centers (NOC) to ensure maximum separation of circuits for greater reliability.
Once our UPS system has detected a power loss and instantaneously compensated by activating back-up systems, our triple-redundant diesel generators begin feeding power to the batteries within a matter of seconds. The generators produce enough electricity to maintain server operations and climate control systems for a full seven days - more than enough time to outlast the effects of devastating natural disasters (we hope).
PCG Hosting servers are SNMP managed and utilize devices located on an entirely different network to notify us by pager of any problems that internal SNMP may not be able to detect.
PCG Hosting is so confident in our ability to provide you with the highest reliability and performance, we offer our standard 99% guarantee of up-time and a 30-day money back guarantee on all of our Web hosting plans.
