PropellerHeadHosting.com's Network & Data Center
Propeller Head Hosting is housed in two secure data centers offering one of the largest and most fault tolerant networks around, extensive uptime, and connectivity to the internet backbone via Gigabit links. We believe in a few large pipes of quality providers in order to handle spikes in traffic and the occasional DoS attack, as well as unknown traffic patterns in the case of a primary link failure. Your customers and you will not get bottlenecks due to small pipes.
Our network infrastructure is maintained by experienced technicians, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. With this combination of superior network access and service, we are able to provide a high quality network operations, while still providing our customers with all the advantages of a small company.

More Reasons Why We're Proud of Our Network
In making significant investments in equipment from major vendors such as Cisco and Lucent, using industry leading equipment that has a proven track record is the best choice, and is well worth the extra expense.
Access to the data center floors is restricted to those holding military grade pass cards. Furthermore, complete access to our floor is only permitted by allowance from the security guards at the front desk, around the clock. You can be safe in the knowledge that only a handful of highly trained, level-three technicians will be allowed within close physical proximity to your server.
Our connections to multiple backbone providers, and peering with many carriers on a regional and international basis, allows us to easily reach remote networks even in the case where a NAP may be unhealthy, or when a specific backbone connection is down. It also allows us to make intelligent routing decisions; for example, if we are trying to reach a remote network which is on the AT&T network, there's no reason to send it out to UUNET first.
The tech staff is working around the clock to ensure that the network is operating at optimum state. We continually review collected statistics to watch for traffic trends so that we can react with the proper routing adjustments and bandwidth addition.
