Global Switch Data Centre

Australia’s best hosting infrastructure

As a web hosting customer, you care about three things.
  • Stability You need your website to run fast and without unnecessary downtime. Once your website is up and running, web hosting should become virtually invisible to you and not a constant source of irritation.
  • Security Your data is a crucial business asset. You don’t want to worry about unauthorised access.
  • Value You want the right balance between the hosting services, support and features you need and the budget within which you have to work.
Ecosite Web Hosting is dedicated to ensuring your hosting will never let you down. Global Switch Data Centre

World class data centre facilities

When you choose Ecosite for your web services, you can be sure that you are getting the best in technical web hosting infrastructure. Our data centres are located at two exceptional data centres; the state-of-the-art Global Switch facility and the recently opened Pegasus E3 data centre — both in Sydney. Running two data centres provides greater flexibility for disaster recovery and redundancy and allows Ecosite Web Hosting to benefit from the particular strengths of each centre.
  • Only quality hardware and software, including fibre channel RAID storage devices
  • No single point of failure with fully redundant, load-balanced web clusters
  • All systems and servers continuously monitored 24×7
  • Daily back-ups carried out with weekly and monthly back-ups archived off-site
  • Around the clock high-level building security protects your infrastructure

Solid hardware and high speed data

Our data centre facilities feature a dedicated 155 MBit STM1 ATM link and multiple OC3 internet connections with 6MB available PVC for fail-over. All Ecosite Web Hosting services are run on IBM NetFinity 4500R rack mounted web servers. These are mission-critical machines, scalable to incorporate the use of a RAID disk array. Cisco and Lucent Network equipment is used, with full service contracts. Redundancy exists at every level with each point of failure protected by a fully automated fail-over replacement. This really is web hosting at it’s best. globalswitch2
