03.04.08 - Safe Host Announces Upgrade to SafeNet Internet Backbone
Plans-les-Ouates, Geneva – 3rd April, 2008 Safe Host, Geneva’s leading data centre company, has expanded its Internet backbone capacity with an upgrade to 3 Gigabits per second links to its tier 1 providers, based on the deployment of Cisco Systems Inc., 7606 RSP 720-3CXL Series Internet Routers.
The upgrade will enable Safe Host to enhance the performance and efficiencies of its network in preparation of increasing broadband demand.
SafeNet™ offers a resilient, multi-homed IP connection with high availability. Safe Host IP network is connected to multiple Tier-1 IP backbones via high speed links. Safe Host maintains its own Autonomous System (AS21217) and Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) enabled border routers for multi-homing and Internet upstream redundancy. Thus if an external link becomes unavailable or a major outage affects one of our upstream connectivity providers, the transmission will automatically be redirected to an alternative route with no impact on availability. This allows Safe Host to offer extremely high levels of network performance and availability.
